The town of Vian sits in Sequoyah County, Oklahoma, 148 miles east of Oklahoma City. It is a small place, with the town centre covering less than a mile square, but has many beautiful natural attractions close by. There aren’t any vets or animal clinics in Vian, but the nearby towns of Sallisaw and Gore have you covered should the unexpected happen during your visit.
In the north of Vian is the spectacular Tenkiller State Park, covering 1,190 acres of parkland, forest and lakeside recreation. Pets are permitted here in both the recreation area and the campgrounds, so why not pack the tent and stay a couple of days? Your pooch will love walking the trails with you or taking a stroll along the edge of the lake. Fishing is permitted here, so you may even be able to catch your dinner! The kids will enjoy the playground at the picnic area or taking a dip in the lake while you cook up some lunch on the grills. As this is a state park, keep your pet leashed during your visit, and always clean up any mess he leaves behind.
Another lovely little space to visit with your dog in Vian is the Anna Farmer Gazebo Park. Although small, this well-kept park has a paved walkway to get in a few steps with your on-leash pup. This park has plenty of streetside parking and is close to town if you fancy a further walk and spot of window shopping.
With many other beautiful places to see close by to Vian, you and your pooch are sure to leave relaxed and refreshed!
