You and your canine companion can enjoy four seasons of fun at Hueston Woods State Park in College Corner. In the springtime, take a hike on one of the eight dog-friendly trails running through the nearly 3,500-acre park, and enjoy fossil hunting and geocaching along the way. When the weather heats up in summer, Action Lake offers boating, canoeing, and fishing for catfish and bass. Fido can splash around at the dog beach or let loose inside the park’s three-acre, fenced-in dog park. The fall is a great time to explore the park as the leaves change. Grab some grub to-go from the on-site Smokehouse Restaurant to enjoy at one of the picnic areas located throughout the park, and cozy up around the bonfire on the cool nights. In the winter, visitors can enjoy sledding, cross-country skiing, and ice fishing with their pup.
With so much for Fido to explore, you’ll want to spend a night (or more!) in the state park to experience all it has to offer. The Hueston Woods Lodge & Conference Center provides efficiency cabins that welcome furry guests. Each cabin includes some modern amenities of home such as a gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, TV, outdoor grill, and fire ring.
