Known as "The Friendly Isle," Lopez Island is part of the San Juan Islands in Washington. This lovely island has a combination of forests, farmland, mountains, and beaches. There are several areas for dogs and their owners to explore here. There is a veterinarian on the northwest side of the island where you can take your pooch for professional care.
You can spend a day hiking and fishing or camp overnight with your pup at Odlin County Park on the northern end of Lopez Island. There are group and individual campsites in this 80-acre waterfront park. Dogs are permitted to join you as long as they're kept on a leash at all times and you clean up their messes.
A great place to take your pup for a hike is Fisherman Bay Spit Preserve located across the bay from Lopez Village. Walk along the shoreline or through the meadows and woodlands with your special pal in this scenic area. Your leashed pup is free to join you as you explore this 29-acre facility.
Take your pooch to the "heart of Lopez" to hike the trails of Lopez Hill. There are four miles of natural trails that are designed for multiple use in this forested, 400-acre wilderness area. As with other public access parks on Lopez Island, dogs are allowed as long as they're on a leash
Lopez Island offers some pawtastic outdoor adventures for dogs and their owners!
