The Cheboygan State Park is 1250 acres of beautiful landscape and natural beauty. Dogs are welcome at this picturesque park as long as they are on a leash that measures up to six feet or less. Pet parents need to have control of their dog at all times during the visit to the park. Park rules say pet parents are required to clean up after their dog so make sure you carry a supply of doggie poop bags.
Owners need to prevent their dog from disturbing other visitors at the park and natural wildlife in the surrounding areas. You can quickly remove your dog from any situation since they are already on a leash. Dogs can’t enter areas such as lodges, cabins, showers, offices, and bathrooms in the park. However, there are pet-friendly lodging options for an additional $10 fee for cabins and $15 fee for lodges per dog.
You can reserve dog-friendly lodging up to 12 months in advance by contacting the park directly. The current rule is only two dogs per cabin. Your family can enjoy a variety of fun activities the park has to offer such as boating, camping, shooting, fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, biking, horseback riding, hunting, ATV riding, and snowmobiling.
The hiking trails welcome dogs but make sure you keep them on a leash at all times. Prepare a bag with supplies for your dogs such as waste bags, fresh water, first aid kit, treats, and medication. Always consider your dog’s health condition before starting a hike.
Dogs that have mobility issues or health issues can get tired on the trail, and you will be required to carry them the rest of the trail. Overall, this is a beautiful state park that offers plenty to do and a great bonding experience with your dog. Remember to contact the park office to make dog-friendly camping reservations in advance.
