Originally constructed by the Army Corps of Engineers, Edgewood Campground and its surrounding parklands offer a great place to spend the night with your canine companion. The looping camp roads are great for walking a dog and provide some beautiful glimpses of the surrounding DeGrey Lake.
There are just over 40 total campsites available in Edgewood. These are situated in 3 distinct loops, all of which have centrally located restrooms and shower facilities. Make sure to bring some spare change if you'll be cleaning off, as the showers here are all coin-operated. The sites themselves are partially developed, offering spigots for drinking water in addition to electrical hookups for a bit of modern convenience. No outdoor stakes are allowed for leashes, so guests are required to keep Fido in their tent throughout the evening.
Edgewood also offers RV-specific sites in case you've come in a popup trailer or other recreational vehicle. Dump stations for these types of overnight campers are available just outside of registration house to the north of the site. Make sure that, if you're keeping your dog along for an overnight stay, they're kept clear of the shower and restroom facilities.
A wonderful half-mile stretch of swimming beaches enables guests to cool off during the summertime heat. These swimming areas are cordoned off with buoys and stretches of rope, so make sure to stick to the areas suggested by Edgewood. Lifeguards are staffed here regularly in case guests are splashing around with little ones, or just aren't the strongest swimmers themselves. Visitors with dogs should make sure to steer clear of these areas, including the waters themselves.
Edgewood requires all visiting canines to be on a 6-foot leash or shorter during their stay. Visitors should always keep an eye out for any messes Fido might leave behind, and dispose of them in one of the many doggie waste bins that have been placed around the campsite loops.
