Big Hill Lake is a great place for fishing, boating, and swimming, and the campground has a beach area where you can hang out and enjoy nice views of the water (no furry paws allowed on the beach, unfortunately). There are also some furrific dog-friendly hiking trails in the area. Green Thumb Nature Trail is a good choice for a short stroll; it runs just under a mile and is mostly flat, making it pawfect for lazy lapdogs or pups that just need a short walk. For a more challenging hike, you can head over to Elk City Lake. There, you’ll find Table Mound Trail, which extends over five miles on the east side of the lake. It has some sections with rough terrain after it crosses the main road, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can forge ahead!
