Picture of Saluda Shoals Barking Lot, a dog friendly attraction in Columbia.


Saluda Shoals Park is home the the Barking Lot Dog Park, a two-acre fenced, off leash area for dogs to run and play. Owners of well-mannered canines who enjoy a good romp have access to a fenced, off-leash area for their pets. The Barking Lot features two small bone shaped pools for dogs to cool off in in the hot summer months and access to dog drinking fountain.

Future plans include the addition of a fire hydrant water feature and a shaded gazebo for pets and their owners to enjoy.

    We drove into the park, paid the $5 to get in, the attendant saw that we had a dog in the car

    Beautiful dog park and definitely the largest in our area. However, some of their rules are a little silly. And while it does not affect me personally, not allowing pits is just discriminatory toward an entire breed of dog and really perpetuates the stereotype that pits are "bad and vicious". (Which we know is NOT true). And I don't agree with the rule that a puppy has to be 6 months old. But nonetheless, a great place to let your dog romp off leash.

    great park

    Great park however not a free park. Will cost $85 for the year which includes access to the dog park ($40) as well as an annual pass to the entire park ($45), otherwise $5 for a day pass. Lots of jogging trails and bike paths. We love going down to the river on hot summer days!
