Dog Walking in Bonne Terre

Bonne Terre is a big attraction because its old mines now are filled with clean water.  Scuba divers around the area flock to Bonne Terre to practice their scuba diving skills. The town itself is very small. There are no veterinarians in the city limits. The surrounding towns of Farmington and Park Hills, though, have several clinics. 

Need a place to stay for your adventures in Bonne Terre? Visitors with a dog may stay at the Super 8 Motel. The Super 8 welcomes visitors with no more than 2 pups for an additional fee of $10 per night. The dogs must be under 25 pounds.  

While in town, you'll find several city parks nearby that provide green places to walk and spots to share a picnic with your pooch. City Park, Lakeview Park, and Veteran's Park all welcome leashed dogs. Make sure you bring waste bags to keep the parks nice and tidy for everyone.

Bonne Terre is also home to St. Francois State Park. St. Francois offers camping with both basic and utilities on-site. Dogs are welcome as long as they stay on no less than a 10-foot lead. Hikers will want to experience the three trails in the park. The beautiful Mooner's Trail is 2.75 miles long. It is a moderately difficult trail. Swimming Deer Trail is also moderately difficult at 3.15 miles long. Pike Run Trail is considered a rugged, lengthy trail at 10.25 miles. A backpack campsite area is located on the trail. There are no facilities at the backpack camp, which is pawfect for those seeking a true back-to-nature experience. Your pup may keep you company for this adventure.
