A pretty, little park on the shores of Lake St. Lawrence, Coles Creek State Park offers a host of opportunities for outdoor fun and recreation. The best thing about this 1,800-acre park, however, is that you can experience it all with your furry friend by your side.
With 230 campsites to choose from, some wooded and some open, Coles Creek State Park is a popular destination for vacationers. Pets are welcome on most sites - except those on the designated pet-free camping loop, and a limit of two pets per site applies. Campsites start from $18 a night, while the day-use vehicle entry fee during peak times is set at $7.
You'll also need to take care to follow a few other rules and regulations when visiting with your pooch. Your dog will need to be kept on a leash of no more than six feet, and you'll need to clean up after your pet at all times.
But if you're willing to do that, you'll have a grrr-eat time in this spectacular camping spot. Unsurprisingly, many visitors to Coles Creek State Park spend the majority of their time on, in, or around the water. The lake is perfect for boating and fishing, with boat launch ramps available, while there's also a swimming beach if you're looking to get wet during the summer months. There's a marina at the mouth of Coles Creek, located just to the north of the park entrance.
A playground is offered to entertain younger kids, while other facilities include playing fields, grills, and a large pavilion.
If you're looking for a lakeside getaway you can share with your canine companion, Coles Creek State Park is well worth a visit. Whether you're looking to indulge in as many outdoor activities as possible or just spend a relaxing weekend away with your pooch, make sure this park is on your shortlist of must-see destinations.
