Chilcoot, California has a unique history that is plagued by war and bloodshed. There were, and still are, quite a few Native American tribes that have thrived on this land for generations before the Europeans started to head west in the late 1800s. At first, the Native Americans tried to welcome the settlers. It wasn't until they began losing their land and the government did nothing to protect them that it became a dangerous place. Eventually, the Native Americans were overcome. It was, sadly, a loss for a whole community. In the twentieth century, Native Americans paintings began to tell the true story of the area. Even now, you can find locals whose ancestors were part of the original tribes who will tell you their story. 

If you are interested in learning more about Chilcoot's history, and in a more hands-on way, you should take your pup down to Beckwourth Pass. This is full of caves and informative historical markers. You should be aware that this is bear county. Stop by the local vet's office and get tips on how to avoid bears and what you should do if you encounter one.

If you just want to relax in the peace of nature that this land provides, go to Chilcoot Campground. It is located right on Last Chance Creek. You can enjoy the trails, splash in the river, or just enjoy some time away. If you don't want to camp, you can still come here for a great day trip!

    #1 Marina Village

    Sparks Marina Dog Park is a great place to bring your dog for a swim. It is fenced in so that your dog can come and play in the water safely. Keep in mind that the fence can only go so far in water so your dog could swim past it if he is a strong swimmer. There is also drinking water available here. If your dog isn't a swimmer, there is still plenty of room to roam and play. There are also plenty of sitting areas where you can watch your pup play and get to know other pet owners. All of this is only half an hour from Chilcoot!

Kids aren't allowed to play here, but they do have kiddie area within sight of the dog park.
