Discover the unspoiled beauty of Mississippi with your pooch at Clarkco State Park! Situated near the Mississippi-Alabama state line, this 815-acre site of gently rolling woodlands has been a favorite outdoor spot since the late 1930s.
Explore Clarkco with your four-legged pal by hitting the 5-mile nature trail that encircles the park. As you follow this well-marked path, keep your eyes peeled for the various flora and fauna that can be spotted along the way. The trail is divided into half-mile sections, so you and Fido can walk for as long or as short as you want. An observation tower awaits at the upper end of Clarkco Lake, but it is unknown if dogs are allowed inside. Nevertheless, your pooch will definitely go nuts over all the new sights, sounds, and smells that they'll encounter on the trail. Remember to observe proper petiquette by keeping your canine buddy on a leash and picking up after them. Be sure to bring enough clean-up bags and water.
If your pup is used to being on a boat, the park has a boat launch for private watercraft. Enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, and relaxing scenery as you and your dog take a leisurely cruise around the 65-acre lake. Clarkco also offers a 9-hole disc golf course and 60 picnic sites surrounding the water. Each site is equipped with tables and barbecue grills, so you and Fido can have a woofderful picnic with a pawsome view.
If you're planning to stay the night, the park features camping sites, cabins, and a vacation cottage. Furry guests are not allowed in the cabins and cottage, unfurtunately, but they're welcome in the campgrounds as long as they are leashed. There are 43 developed and 7 primitive camping sites to choose from. Hot showers, laundry facilities, and a central sewage dumping station are located in the developed camping area.
