It would be hard to imagine what Pine Lake State Park looked like a century ago before it was purchased by the Civilian Conservation Corps. For one thing, you wouldn't see any lakes around you, as both bodies of water that sit in the park now are manmade features. Thanks to lots of hard work, this state park is now a peaceful haven where you and your canine pal can hang out amongst the trees.
The campgrounds here are comprised of 120 campsites, most of which offer electric hookups. At your site, feel free to start a campfire in the ring provided, with wood being available for purchase at a gas station just outside the park. Pine Lake also has 4 cabins on offer, 3 of which permit puppers inside with their people! To make them even better, these cabins are set to get a facelift during the 2019 summer season. Drinking water is provided on the grounds, as is a dump station for all trailers and RVs. Rates to stay here start at $6 a night for a basic lot during the off-peak months from October until April and go all the way up to $19 for a full-hookup site in the busy summer season.
Pine Lake is the perfect spot to unwind, as it rarely gets crowded -- even in the peak camping months. This means you'll be able to relax without the noise of other guests around you while you camp. The lakes themselves keep the peaceful setting going, as no powered boating is permitted on either of the water bodies. What is allowed here are kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and any other non-motorized watercraft -- so you can still get out and enjoy time above the waves! Calm waters make for great fishing, meaning this place is excellent for landing a catch whether you're in a boat or casting from the shores.
Doggos are permitted throughout the state park as long as they stay on a standard leash. It's also asked that all owners be good pet parents and properly clean up after their furry friends during their visit.
