Brush Lake is a picture-perfect lake near Dagmar, Montana. With clear, deep water fringed by sandy beaches, it's long been a popular spot with visitors and outdoor enthusiasts. The lake is surrounded on three sides by Brush Lake State Park, which offers a great pet-friendly campground for anyone planning a camping vacation.
The highlight for many visitors to the park is taking a refreshing swim in the lake's cooling waters. The park offers public access for swimming at the 280-acre lake's norhern end, while water skiing and boating on the smooth waters are also popular.
However, due to its high alkaline content, the lake doesn't actually support any fish life. So if you're a keen angler, this definitely isn't the park for you. But if you love being in the great outdoors, enjoying a quiet paddle on a canoe or kayak, or perhaps indulging in a spot of wildlife watching, you'll feel right at home here.
If you're planning on staying the night, the Brush Lake State Park campground boasts 12 sites, all of which feature electricity. Two of these are double sites for those who want a little extra space, and all sites welcome pets.
If you're camping with your dog, it's important to make yourself aware of Montana state park rules surrounding canine guests before your visit. From April 15 until September 15, all pets must be on a leash no
longer than 10 feet long, unless otherwise posted. Your dog must also be on a leash when in the campground.
As always, it's up to you to be a responsible pet owner and clean up after your dog whenever necessary. By performing these simple tasks, you'll be doing your bit to help more parks around the country remain pet-friendly.
Brush Lake State Park is a unique spot in a beautiful part of Montana. If you're looking for a relaxing and secluded camping spot you can enjoy with your canine pal, check it out.
