Planning a pet-friendly camping trip in Georgia? Why not check out Laura S. Walker State Park, a 626-acre park found near Hoboken and just a stone's throw from the mysterious Okefenokee Swamp.
Whether you're a keen golfer, you love nature watching, or you just want to spend some time exploring the great outdoors with your canine pal, you'll find plenty to do in this charming park. Best of all, just as in any other Georgia state park, pets are welcome within the park boundaries and in the campground if kept on a leash of no longer than six feet and accompanied by their owner at all times. Of course, you'll also need to remember to clean up after your furry friend and leave no mess behind.
A visit to Laura S. Walker State Park gives you the opportunity to enjoy a host of recreational activities. If you love discovering native flora and fauna, you'll find plant life as diverse as carnivorous pitcher plants and wildlife that includes alligators, gopher tortoises, great blue herons, and many more. Four miles of hiking trails take you through the park and offer the perfect way to get up close to your natural surroundings.
If other leisure pursuits are more your taste, you might want to play a round or two on The Lakes, a championship 18-hole golf course. Alternatively, you may feel more at home fishing or swimming in the park's 120-acre lake, or perhaps renting a kayak and going for a paddle.
There's certainly no shortage of things to see and do in Laura S. Walker State Park, but one of the key attractions for any dog lover is the off-leash dog area. This fenced area features water, benches, and doggy waste cans, and is yet another reason why your furry friend will love visiting this beautiful state park.
