The Dabney State Recreation Area is an outdoor facility near Corbett in Oregon. This is the park to escape to and not tell your dog where you're going. Fido will be peering at you through the window wondering why you've left him at home. No dog understands why pets are strictly prohibited in the Dabney State Recreation area, and that includes leashed and well-behaved ones.
If you're searching for a place to spend time with your fur buddy in a natural environment, keep looking, Dabney State Park isn't it. If you are a pet parent who doesn't mind leaving their pup to brood at home alone for the day or would consider putting it in daycare for a few hours, there are some great fun activities to do at the Dabney State Recreation Area.
There is a charge for vehicle parking. Daily parking costs $5, but there is also an annual option available for the price of $30 or a twenty-four-month parking permit can be purchased for $50. The parking permits are valid from the day of purchase and can be used at any of Oregon's twenty-six different state parks.
Permits can be purchased on the Oregon State Parks website. Those taking an ATV into a state park also need a permit. This costs $10 and is valid for two years. If you are a pet parent who's decided to take a day off from scooping your puppy's poop while having a day out, you might also enjoy a picnic or barbecue in Dabney State park without your pup drooling saliva at the smell of the sausages grilling.
If you really want to make a party of leaving your pooch at home, then you can rent a picnic shelter which holds up to fifty people for the day. That will cost you $50 plus an $8 non-refundable reservation fee. Sounds like fun, but guaranteed, you'll have a much better time with your dog at a state park which is pet-friendly.
