Love fishing, hiking, or immersing yourself in nature almost as much as you love your pet? If so, Lake Mary Roman State Park, located seven miles west of Flathead Lake in Montana, is well worth a visit.
Spread across 120 acres at an elevation of 3,770 feet, this beautiful park combines a secluded location with excellent angling and a host of other recreational opportunities.
For many visitors, the chance to try their luck catching kokanee salmon, yellow perch, and smallmouth bass is the park's key drawcard. However, others prefer to tackle one of the numerous hiking trails, explore the native wildflowers and wildlife, or just enjoy camping off the beaten path and getting away from the rest of the world. Snowshoeing and ice fishing are also popular in winter, while this park is a favorite spot for keen nature photographers all year round.
The Lake Mary Ronan State Park campground is home to 25 campsites and a new group camping area. Most individual sites feature electricity and all allow you to camp with your four-legged companion.
Take note that when visiting a Montana state park with your pet, your furry friend will need to be kept on a leash of 10 feet or shorter at all times. Pets aren't allowed in swimming areas or any other areas where signs indicate they're not permitted, and remember that it's your responsibility to remove and dispose of any animal waste.
Park entry and camping fees vary depending on whether you're a Montana resident or not, so read up on how much your stay will cost before you visit.
Apart from that, all you have to do is get ready for a paw-some camping getaway. If you're looking for a quiet and secluded, pet-friendly campground, Lake Mary Roman State Park should be right at the top of your list.
