If you and your friends or family are looking for a Fido-friendly getaway in the great outdoors, you could do a lot worse than Coy Flat Campground. Those who’ve stayed here aren’t shy about why they love it! While the facilities are a little primitive -- you won’t find electricity hookups or showers here -- the location is certainly hard to beat. Situated inside the breathtakingly beautiful Sequoia National Monument, the 18-site campsite provides accommodation for up to six people per site. Coy Flat’s size is part of its charm, but it does mean that it’s best to book early, particularly in the peak season. There’s also a convenience store just a mile away at Camp Nelson, so there’s no need to waste precious luggage space on food! Fees range from $26 to $52, depending on the season and the size of the group.
The giant redwood groves of the Sequoia National Monument are truly awe-inspiring, so it’s a good thing that each campsite has a picnic area where you and your buddy can sit back and take in the view. If staying sedentary isn’t for you, don’t worry -- you’re quite close by to several fantastically Fido-friendly hiking trails! Hitchcock Meadows Trail is nearby, and the one-mile trek features some fabulous wildflowers in spring. You’re also just a stone’s throw away from Bear Creek. The creek is an excellent spot for trout fishing, but hound-dog hikers might be a little more interested in the Bear Creek Trail! An ideal choice for four-pawed fitness freaks, the trail has some steep inclines and runs through some of the forest’s most spectacular scenery.
Wifi isn’t available at Coy Flat, and cellular coverage varies from network to network. You might want to check with your provider before you head off if you need to be constantly contactable. Campfires are permitted, but only within designated rings, and fire regulations can change with the weather. Drinking water is also available on-site. Remember to bring waste bags for your doggo, and have a pawesome trip!
