Located 20 miles north of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Farragut State Park is one of the most beautiful locations anywhere in the state. Sitting on the southern tip of Lake Pend Oreille, the 4,000-acre park offers year-round opportunities for outdoor recreation and relaxation. Happily, it's also a dog-friendly destination.
If you want to camp with your pooch in Farragut State Park, remember that you'll need to stick to a few, key rules and regulations. These include keeping your pet leashed and under your control at all times, as well as taking care to clean up after your dog and properly dispose of their waste.
If you can do this and show courtesy to other park users, you and your dog are free to explore the best the park has to offer. And while there's plenty to see and do, the highlight for many is Lake Pend Oreille, which offers ample opportunities for fishing, boating and swimming. Take note, however, that pets are not allowed at Beaver Bay Beach.
If you want to stretch your legs, the park boasts over 40 miles of trails for hikers and bikers to explore. For the fittest and most adventurous travelers, the hike along the Highpoint Trail to the Scout Trail and then up Bernard Peak offers spectacular views, not to mention an impressive challenge.
History buffs will love exploring the Museum at the Brig, which houses a large collection of United States Farragut Naval Training Station memorabilia, while active types will be delighted by the inclusion of three 18-hole disc golf courses within the park's boundaries.
The Farragut State Park campground includes 61 standard and 156 serviced sites, as well as group, ADA and equestrian camping options. 10 camper cabins are als available, but only two of them are pet-friendly.
It's a lovely campground in a beautiful part of the world, so why not check it out on your next dog-friendly camping trip?
