Situated in a pretty landscape dominated by pine trees and sandstone bluffs, Rocky Arbor State Park offers a peaceful and secluded spot to escape the rest of the world. Located in the Wisconsin Dells region, the park offers a quiet setting for pet-friendly camping vacations.
The park is known for its unique sandstone outcrops, which were first formed around 500 million years ago and much later sculpted into the shapes they are today when the Wisconsin River cut a gorge through the area. The best way to see the best of this unique scenery is to take a stroll along the park's one-mile self-guided nature trail.
Rocky Arbor State Park also boasts a picnic area and playground near the park entrance, and is open all year round for anyone who wants to indulge in a spot of winter hiking or snowshoeing.
Rocky Arbor's family campground is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. There, you'll find 89 wooded campsites, showers, and flush toilets, with a small selection of those campsites featuring electrical hookups. Happily, this is a pet-friendly campground where your dog is more than welcome.
Of course, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with all Wisconsin state park pet rules before your visit. For example, your dog will need to be on a leash of no longer than eight feet at all times. Your dog must be under control at all times and must never be allowed to interfere with other people's enjoyment of the park. As always, you'll have to clean up after your dog and properly dispose of their waste.
Rocky Arbor State Park may not be the biggest or the most spectacular state park, but it's still well worth a visit. It's quiet, peaceful, and has a laid-back atmosphere, making it the pawfect location for anyone who wants to get back to nature with their furry friend.
