  • More than one year ago.
    Nice year round.

    Miles of trails and paved road for those who don't want to risk muddy paws. Dog beach for those hot days.
    Down sides: requires park pass. Best advice is to get a yearly pass (gets you into all state parks!), dog beach is rather small and shore is dirt, not sand ( but there is talk of improving shore conditions), there is not a clearly defined "dog park" and park rules require leash use with six foot maximum length.
    Despite the above mentioned, "minor" negative aspects a great place to take the pups for a day of swimming and hiking!
    Make sure to bring water.
