Dog Areas in Grayslake

In the northern part of the state Illinois, within the rough and rugged woodlands, lies the quiet little city of Grayslake. The Grayslake area is well-traveled thanks to its dense forests and many lakes. The region offers many recreational and outdoors opportunities - from fishing and swimming in the summer to ice skating and ice hockey in the winter. Grayslake is, however, also perfect for dog owners as there are many opportunities to walk the dogs.

There are a total of four dog parks in the Lake County area. One of them is the Callahan-Franklin Dog Exercise Area, which is part of the Larsen Nature Preserve in Waukegan. This off-leash dog park is a great way for dogs in Lake County to run around fully free and socialize with other dogs. Small dogs are separated from the larger breeds, and it has ample benches, picnic tables, and shade for the owners.

The Lake County Council is looking to add a fifth dog park that is much larger than the current dog parks. The new off-leash dog park is to be constructed in Waukegan Savanna Forest Preserve and will be a massive 40 acres in size.

If you are planning to visit Grayslake, Illinois, and plan to bring your dog(s) with you, check out the Comfort Suites Grayslake as this hotel allows pets at an additional fee.

Highland Park is a 38 minute drive from Grayslake, but is home to multiple dog friendly trails and a beach-park combination. With a spectacular view, Moraine Beach is perfect for a good swim with Fido. But, you can do more than swim here!

If you love going to the beach, and want to bring the four-legged love of your life, Highland Park should definitely be on your bucket list!

Just a short 6 minute commute, Libertyville is one of the smaller neighboring cities to Grayslake. The local dog park, however, is highly rated amongst the park goers. The park consists of 30 acres of fenced space, as well as access to the river for a “quick” swim or two during hotter days. Dogs are welcome to romp off-leash for a few games of ball and run with other park dogs, while you rest at various shaded picnic tables and benches. On the other hand, if you are interested in hiking with your best bud, trails are also available for you to walk with your leashed canine companion.
