Walker River State Recreation Area is pet-friendly. This little gem is a great spot to take your pooch to if you're looking to explore the river and the surrounding area. There aren't many hiking trails around the river, but keen floaters can hop on the water in their kayak. Dogs are welcome to join their owners, as long as they are on a leash under six feet and all mess is cleaned up after them. Walker River can be accessed seven days a week, 365 days a year.
