Quail Valley was once a stand-alone town in Riverside County, but is now a community within the city of Menifee, along with Sun City. Menifee contains many city and valley-wide parks that are pup-friendly and full of features that dogs and outdoors-loving humans enjoy. And if your pup becomes ill or injured, be sure to visit one of at least 5 veterinarians in the area, including 2 in Canyon Lake, and 1 each in Menifee, Perris and Sun City. Your furry pal will be up and wagging again in no time!
Quaill Valley’s western border is formed by the San Jacinto River’s northern section as it flows southward to Canyon Lake. Access to the river provides opportunities for hiking with Fido and sightings of hawks and other birds, as well as small mammals and amphibians. In addition, the community is home to Quail Valley Recreational Park, a unique campground with more than 100 sites for RVs and tents. A full-service campground, it features a pet-friendly environment (on leash), restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, picnic tables and fire rings, ice and firewood. The best amenities are the natural ones: walking paths everywhere, fresh crisp air, lush meadows and lots of pine and oak trees, plus a pond for swimming. Open year-round, this pawsome spot is perfect for an outdoor getaway with your furry bestie!
