Clinton State Park is nestled on the northern shore of Clinton Lake. This beautiful natural space sprawls across 1,500 acres of land, giving your doggo plenty of room to roam. If your pal is in the mood for some outdoor fun, grab the leash and make your way to this furrific park!
Your pooch will be pleased to know that there are over 20
miles of trails in Clinton State Park. Hop on the Blue, Red, or White Trails so
your doggo can get some much needed exercise. If they prefer more lakefront
scenery, stick to the Blue Trail. Follow the Red Trail for ravines that head
away from the lake. There is also a short self guided walk called Prairieview Nature
Trail. Since all trails are multi-use, keep your eyes and ears open for
If your pup wants to sleep under the stars, bring a
couple sleeping bags and grab one of the park’s campsites. There are three
campgrounds and over 400 sites to choose from! Both RV and tent sites are available.
After a long day of exploring, your pooch will want nothing more than to head
back to camp and relax by the fire.
Hiking and camping aren’t the only things to do at this
park. Also housed on the grounds are an archery range, two disc golf courses,
sand volleyball courts, and a mountain bike skills course. For those who love
fishing, the lake is full of catfish, walleye, and crappie. And a three-acre
pond teeming with trout and a one-acre pond for children are also available.
Clean up bags are not provided, so be sure to bring some
from home. You’ll definitely want to carry some bug spray during the summer
months. And don’t forget to check your pal for any bites. Make no mistake; your
pup will go mutts over Clinton State Park!
