Dog Walking in Desloge

Desloge is a tiny town, but there are plenty of activities nearby for a person and a canine pal. Desloge does not have any veterinarians, but nearby towns like Park Hills and Farmington have several clinics. The city has two small parks which give a person and a leashed dog some green space and fresh air. 

The best opportunities for outdoor exercise can be found at one of the two state parks less than ten miles away from Desloge. St. Francois State Park is nine miles north of Desloge. This 2,700-acre recreation area is a pawpular spot for canoe floats to access the Big River. It also has a campground (for both tent and electric camping) and three hiking trails. These range in length from 2.75 miles (Mooner's Hollow Trail) to 10.25 miles long (Pike Run Trail). All trails in St. Francois are rated as moderate to rugged in difficulty.

St. Joe State Park is five miles south of Desloge. Its four trails include two easy trails. The Paved Bicycle Trail traverses 3.75 miles that are paved and wheelchair-accessible. Pine Ridge Trail is 12.6 miles in length with a backpack camp for a real back-to-nature experience with a furry companion. Missouri State Parks are dog-friendly and permit dogs in the campgrounds and on the trails as long as they are on a leash no longer than ten feet.

Ste. Genevieve is located thirty-seven miles east of Desloge. Fleur de Lis Dog Park is as colorful as its name suggests. This dog park was a labor of love by the community. It began as an Eagle Scout project, and soon, the whole city took part in making it a truly beautiful place to take a pup to play. The city donated old tires and drainage pipes, and with a paint can and an artist's touch, pup playground equipment was created. The dog park itself is a fenced, grassy space where all dogs can play together. A single yellow bench, sans shade, gives people a place to sit and watch their pups make a new canine buddy.  No fees or registration is required to use the dog park.
