Description

Nothing beats spending some time in the great outdoors with your four legged sidekick. Let Brantley Lake State Park be the next destination you and your pupster explore. With gorgeous desert scenery, a pawsome lake, and woofderful trails, this state park will definitely not disappoint!

As you may have guessed by its name, this park is nestled on the shores of the manmade Brantley Lake, and it’s conveniently located just 12 miles north of Carlsbad. Most visitors come to this park for the lake access. And who can blame them? This place is the pawfect spot to kayak, canoe, paddle board or cruise around on a motorized boat. There are two docks and two ramps to help you launch your watercraft. Fishing is also quite pupular. The lake is teeming with bass, white bass, walleye, catfish, bluegill, carp, and crappie. So bring your pole and cast a line!

If your pup would rather stay on dry land, explore the trails that wind through the park. Your pup will be in heaven as they trot along the trails and pick up all the new smells. The area surrounding the lake is full of native desert plants and wildlife. If you do see a little critter, make sure your pupster doesn’t harass it. Also, don’t forget to carry plenty of drinking water for both you and your furry friend.

With brilliant night skies and puptacular sunsets, Brantley Lake State Park is an ideal place to spend the night. Bring a couple sleeping bags and settle into one of the 51 developed campsites.  Each of them has electric hookups and access to water. Restrooms and showers are also nearby.  Shoreline camping and boat-in sites are available.

Make no mistake, your canine companion will have a woofderful time hanging out at Brantley Lake State Park!
