When most people think of Florida, they think of exotic animals, warm water, large theme parks, and plenty to do outdoors. Indeed, most places in Florida have all that and so much more! Florida is home to an immense amount of natural beauty that you and your dog can explore.
Lake Geneva is nestled right between Gainesville and Jacksonville, giving residents close access to dog-friendly fun and activities in both cities. Whether you're craving some delicious food, some fresh air, or just a rush of adrenaline, either of these muttropolises will have something special for you and Fido.
Because it's an unincorporated community, Lake Geneva doesn't have much to offer dogs and their owners in terms of modern amenities, like dog parks and dog-friendly restaurants. Luckily, Lake Geneva is located just a short drive from several nature preserves and lakes where you and your pup can play the day away! It's also just a little over an hour away from St. Augustine Beach, so dog-friendly fun is never far away.
Just north of Lake Geneva is Camp Blanding Wma. Although this is a military base, it is also a gigantic nature preserve. Many locals flock to this preserve on the weekends for some peace and quiet, exercise, and hunting. It's also a popular park with local dog owners, so you and Fido are sure to sniff out some new friends. This park is also used as a hunting ground, so avoid it during hunting season if you have a shy pup. Please bring some waste bags along and clean up after your dog to keep the park nice and tidy for everyone. Dogs must be leashed at all times here.
