Acton is a small residential community that was founded by gold miners working on the Red Rover Mine who decided to name the place after Acton in Massachusets. In times past, Acton aspired to become the state's capital, but all the efforts of Governor Henry T. Gage to officially move the capital there failed.
A really fun place in Acton is the Acton KOA, which welcomes canine campers! There, you can find plenty of activities, sports courts, a pool, playgrounds, hiking opportunities, and more! What's more important is that they also offer a dog park where you can let your dog exercise! If you prefer more traditional accommodation, check out the choices that Palmdale, around 12 miles away from Acton, offers.
