Cave Creek is in the Sonora Desert almost 2,200 feet above sea level on Black Mountain. Cave Creek Museum has a historic building on the grounds called Tubercular Cabin that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Cave Creek Service Station and Cave Creek Inn have also been preserved in town and have both been turned into restaurants. Also, there are close to 1,200 dogs living in Cave Creek, and with just about 5,000 people living there you can tell that there are quite a few dog lovers in town. So, you can bring Fido when you visit and be assured that there are some dog-friendly places to go.
Echo Mountain Off-Leash Arena on North 20th Street has close to 2 ½ acres of grassy prairie land divided into two fenced areas for big and small furbabies. It is a big wide open space with some toys and water fountains for the pups and benches for their humans. The park also provides “mutt mitt” dog waste dispensers in both areas.
Roscoe Dog Park is a really nice park on Estrella Parkway with plenty of seating and shade for the dog owners and separate fenced spaces for both large and smaller dogs. You can let Fido run free off the leash to get rid of some of that energy before getting back in the car.
