Range Pond State Park

Dogs are allowed to join their owners at Range Pond State Park in Poland, Maine. Located along the northeast shore of beautiful Lower Range Pond, you'll discover a sand beach swim area and a picnic spot that overlooks the water. There are a couple of pet-friendly trails that weave around the park as well, including Old Fields Trail that loops through the pine forest at Range Pond and the Railroad Trail that leads through old logging roads and railroad beds, with just one short hill. Visitors should be aware that pets aren't allowed on State Park beaches between April 1 and September 30. You can bring Fido with you to enjoy the park if they are on a leash under six feet and all mess is cleaned up after them. Range Pond State Park is open every day of the week from 9am until sunset.

    Great flat trails

    we had a blast just walking along the trail. it was flat which was nice. I’m not sure if my pup will be allowed on the beach in the summer or not because I didn’t read the sign…. but it was just a nice relaxing trial.

    Trails but no beach/water access

    There is a hiking trail that allows dogs on leash but all areas with water access are clearly marked "No Dogs", even on the smaller, normally unused access points.

    Very Clean Lake!

    I This State Park allows dogs in a very small access area, they are not allowed on the beautiful sand beaches. In my experience the dog space is so small it cannot accommodate too many dogs and pple. But at least there is access, and the lake is very clean, I’ve not seen any algae yet. There are a few short trails as well
