    Huge Play Area

    Big and small dog areas, both large. My pup loved it. I was there in February and it was hot. There’s no shade to speak of, so I can imagine it’s brutally hot. That’s the only drawback I saw and that’s pretty easily fixed.

    great park

    No shaded areas but huge space to run. Fun to watch the planes at the local airport too. Our Belba had a great time running and making friends.

    A Barking Good Time!

    Camp Barkeley opened in 2010 with tremendous support from the community. The park has 2 different areas - one for large dogs and one for small dogs. It is a wonderful place to take your pups - for exercise, socialization (for you and your dogs), and for play!

    okay..

    this parks alright..you would think for it being Texas and it for the most part is always hot, they would have some shade for the dogs..and more than one water fountain..

    Free and Friendly

    When my son brings his dog home to visit, one of the highlights is going to Camp Barkeley. The double-gated area allows dogs to "sniff" through the fence before entering. This is a good way to test how welcomed the new dog will be coming in and it allows time for other owners to offer assurance or give warning before entering. (Obviously, I may be more nervous about how dogs will interact than some). There are rules posted to guard against aggressive dogs being unleashed and most dog owners honor the rules. It's a very friendly place to go and let dogs run and have a good time.
