Fur buddies are welcome to join their humans at Austin Creek State Recreation Area but must remain leashed. There is not a specific area reserved for dog play at this facility, and as such, there are no provided amenities for dogs. Owners should bring drinking water with them for canine and human use as the only on-site bathroom is an outhouse which has no water access.
Since canine waste removal is the responsibility of each owner, families should also be sure to carry extra poop bags with them.
