If your pup is itching at the collar to get out in nature, then plan a trip to Buck Creek State Park. This beautiful park is situated in an area that was once covered in glaciers. It also surrounds Clarence J. Brown Reservoir. Your doggo will be in heaven as they explore this puptacular park!
Since the lake is at the center of the park, it should be
no surprise that watersports are quite pupular. If you have a boat, set off
into the water with your canine companion. Be sure to outfit them with a doggy life
jacket. Cruise around the lake and let your pal feel the wind in their fur. Anglers
can bring along their rod and reel and cast a line from the fishing pier. The
lake is teeming with walleye, bass and pan fish. Hopefully, you and your pal
will enjoy a tasty fish dinner!
If your pooch prefers land based activities, take a hike on
one of the pawsome trails. At just a quarter of a mile, Wrens Nest Trail is the
shortest option. Dam Walk Trail is also just a quick jaunt. For something a bit
longer, opt for Lakeview Trail or Meadow Trail. No matter where you go, your
doggo will have a blast checking out all the new smells and searching for
little critters. Remember to carry plenty of drinking water for both you and
your pooch. And don’t forget to have a clean up bag on hand so you can pick up
whatever your pup puts down.
Buck Creek State Park also has plenty of pet friendly
campsites, so bring your sleeping bag and stay a night or two. While at the
park you can also have a woofderful picnic, or play disc golf, volleyball, or
No bones about it, your pupster will love hanging out at this pawsome place!
