Braggs is a very small community in Muskogee County, Oklahoma. The town covers just 0.3 miles, but don’t let this deter you – with the Arkansas River and Greenleaf Lake at its doorstep, there are many pawriffic places to explore around here you’re your pup. Although there aren’t any vets in Braggs itself, there are many options in nearby Gore, Muskogee and Park Hill, so help is never far away if you need it.
The Greenleaf State Park is Braggs’ major drawcard. Situated on the banks of the Greenleaf River, this 930-acre park has walking trails, picnic areas, a marina and a playground to enjoy. The pet-friendly campground has a few different lodging options, from unpowered tent sites to the more upmarket cabins. Within the park is the Greenleaf Trail, a 17.6-mile track split into two loops, north and south. It is of moderate difficulty (the south loop is a little easier), so come prepared to walk this with appropriate shoes, water for you and your pup and any food you may like. In the warmer months, it is wise to pack bug spray too. Keep you pup leashed in the state park.
Just north of the Braggs town center is the Gruber State Game Management Area. There is a trail in here known as Central Europe, named for the road it follows. This multi-use trail is one linear mile long and connects to the E0930 trail, a further 2.2 linear miles. Keep your pet leashed while you enjoy these trails and exploring the Gruber State Game Management Area.
