Dog Areas in Deadwood, OR

Sitting pretty on the banks of Deadwood Creek between Eugene and Florence, Deadwood, OR has an interesting history. Deadwood got its start as a Gold Rush town, but the settlement never really recovered after disaster struck it in the 1860s -- first a wildfire and then a smallpox outbreak decimated the small town's population. The area remained mostly deserted until the 1970s, when Alpha Farm, an international community of artists and other progressives, was established nearby. The long-running commune is now the town’s main claim to fame -- that, and its proximity to a spawning area for Chinook salmon. Unfortunately, there’s no veterinary practice in the area, but you’ll find a choice of clinics to take good care of your buddy in Florence.

With no designated dog park or community park in town, you might be forgiven for thinking that Deadwood isn’t the most fur-friendly place. Not to worry, though, you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! There’s a county park nearby that’s ideal for a leashed walk, and you’ll find some pawesome hiking options not far away. You might need to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, but with a long enough leash, Deadwood can be a great base camp to explore fur-ther afield!

    #1 Northeast Florence

    48

    If your pooch likes to hike, they’ll go barking mad when they realize how close Deadwood is to the Siuslaw National Forest! Thirty minutes from town, you’ll find the Pawn Trailhead, one of the most famous and beautiful walks in the vast, 600,000-acre preserve. The trail was named after a historic 20th-century community and wanders its way through primeval, untouched temperate rainforest and along several streams. As an added bonus, the trail is mostly flat, so it’s suitable for everyone from the fittest furry friends to the less athletic among us. Don’t forget to look up a map before you go, and be sure to bring bags and water!

    Looking for somewhere to chow down with your pooch? You’re sure to find it in Downtown Florence! You’ll find a choice of pawesome places to eat clustered around the town’s scenic riverfront. For a grrreat cup of joe, check out River Roasters, and take an outdoor seat with a waterside view. If you’re looking for something you can really get your teeth in to, head a little inland and stop in at Maple Street Grille. They serve canine customers at their sidewalk tables, so you and your pooch can people watch and take in the sights of Old Town Florence. Be sure to try the beef dip sandwich! Or if you fancy a more upscale experience, you can dine al fresco with your pooch at 1285 Restobar, a local gem with an extensive seafood menu.

    #3 Sweet Creek Rd

    24
    Searching for a seriously scenic Fido-friendly hike? Why not cross the Siuslaw River and check out the furrific Sweet Creek Falls trail near Mapleton? You’ll encounter no fewer than eleven cascading waterfalls on a two-mile creekside walk through wooded wonderland, and the lush ferns and moss only add to the picture. Like the Pawn Trail, this route is pretty forgiving to less experienced hikers, although there is a catwalk along a mountain that can spook some pooches. Be mindful of your pup’s temperament! Come in late spring or summer and you’ll also be treated to the sight of small wildflowers along the path.

    #4 Heron Meadows

    12

    You’ll need to drive all the way to Eugene to get to a fenced area where your furry friend can run free, but make no bones about it, once your doggo gets through the double gates at Candlelight Park Dog Park, you’ll be glad you made the trip! Located in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Heron Meadows, the park has a whopping three and a half acres for your little tearaway to tire themselves out in, and there’s even a couple of doggy pools so your pooch can cool off on a hot day. Bags and water are provided, so all you have do is bring your pup, some toys, and your enthusiasm! The only downside is that there’s no separate small dog area.

    #5 Jessie M Honeyman Memorial State Park

    0

    Jessie M Honeyman Memorial State Park is a real mutts-visit! Three miles from Florence and a thirty-five-minute drive from Deadwood, this park is a haven for water-loving pups -- dogs are allowed to swim off-leash in the gorgeous Woahink and Cleawox lakes, as long as you stay on the south side away from the people-beaches. Your doggo will need to stay on a leash no longer than six feet everywhere else in the park, but the miles upon miles of trails and sand dunes might go some way towards making up for that fact! If you can, come in the spring, when the pink rhododendrons are in full bloom.
