Formerly part of the Kiowa-Apache-Comanche Reservation, the small farming town of Hobart is perfect for pups who enjoy roaming and playing on the farm. Families and their pups take advantage of the friendly atmosphere where both residents and visitors will enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area. Even though the town is small, Fido will find quality veterinarian care provided by two qualified clinics offering routine appointments and emergency care.
When you are looking for an open area to spend some time with Fido, head over to Biggers Park on East 4th Street. The park is named after Felix Biggers, and provides a large grassy field where your pup can romp on leash. There is a path around the area where you can walk some laps, but there are no restrooms or trash receptacles. Be sure to bring water bottles and doggie waste bags to clean up after your pooch.
After a busy day, stop by Main Street Grill and enjoy dinner with your pup. There are picnic tables out back where Fido is welcome to join you while you eat.
If you are traveling through Hobart on your way to Oklahoma City, or you live in the area, be sure to walk Fido on his leash through the main parts of town. For small town charm, you can't beat this puptown!
Located on Terrace Drive, Hunter Park features a walking trail where you and Fido can walk some laps. The path is a little over a mile long and well maintained, and easy for pups and owners of all ability levels. The convenient location is perfect if you need to get some exercise while spending time in town replenishing supplies. You can also take a walk over to Hunter Lake. Bring your fishing pole and relax on the banks of the water or stroll around the shaded walking path. You and your pooch will see a variety of birds and geese, so make sure Fido stays on his leash.
Just fourteen miles west of Hobart, the Quartz Mountain State Park is located in the town of Lone Wolf. You and your pup can walk around the area and enjoy the scenery, and Fido will love sniffing the trees and plants. There is a large lake where you can take the pup for a ride in the boat, and you can even spend a few days camping in the well-maintained campground. If you prefer a few more luxuries, the Quartz Mountain Resort welcomes two pups for an additional fee. The resort features large open spaces where you can walk with your pooch on a leash and a variety of outdoor activities to keep the family entertained.
South of Hobart in the town of Mountain Park, families and their pups can spend time at the Great Plains State Park. There are several hiking trails where you and Fido can explore nature, and the camp rangers are helpful and informative. If you want to go camping with the family, there are tent and RV sites in the park, and the kids can have fun at the playground or on the beach. Fido will have a puptastic time running around the open areas and sniffing the trees. The park is popular with pet owners, so your pooch will have plenty of friends to socialize with while hiking or hanging out by the playground.
The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is situated southeast of Hobart in the town of Indiahoma. The protected wildlife habitat is a great place to spend some time exploring nature with your pooch. You can hike along the trails and see wildlife and plants, but you will want to be sure to keep your pup on a leash. If you want to go camping, there are primitive sites available, and your pup will enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. Be sure to bring your own doggie waste bags and enjoy a scenic hike with family and friends.
Twelve miles north of the center of town, Lake Hobart is a great place to spend the day with Fido and the family. The lake is sometimes known as Rocky Lake and was created as a reservoir for the county of Washita. Pups and their parents can walk around the large lake and enjoy the views and the variety of wildlife. Fido can sniff all the plants and roll around in the grass while you try your luck at fishing, or just relax on a blanket with a cold bottle of water. Enjoy lunch at the picnic area!
