Atco is a community in Camden County, New Jersey just 16 miles southeast of Camden. Although not an officially incorporated town, Atco has a population of approximately 12,000. Atco also has a 30-acre lake in town, and the hot, humid summers and mild winters make it a great place to do outdoor activities with your dog all year long. Atco is part of the Waterford Township, and within this township, there are a handful of veterinary clinics that will ensure your dog is always well taken care of.
Just a 15-minute drive north of Atco, in northeastern Vorhees, New Jersey, sits the Connolly Dog Park. This community off-leash park has everything dogs (and humans!) need for a great day together. There is a section for big dogs and another for small dogs in the park, and throughout the park, there are waste bags, rakes, and bins to clean up any messes. There are also gazebos which offer shade from the sun and benches on both sides of the park where you can sit and watch your dog play. There is a water fountain outside of the gate on both sections of the park, and there are often lots of balls in the park for your dog to chase. You and your dog are going to love exploring all of the parks around Atco!
