    This park is incredibly dog friendly. Nearly everyone camping there had dogs, so the guests were also dog friendly. They have a dog swimming area as well. The cabins are NOT dog friendly, but the walking trails and all camping areas are. We took our two pups on the Hidden Falls hike. Bring some water. There is a creek that runs nearby, but it is off the trail and not easily accessible the whole way. Our dogs just laid in the water at the bottom of the falls once we got there. The weather (mid-May) was fantastic, but the swimming area was closed.
