Description

Treat your pooch to a weekend at Dworshak State Park. This pawsome park is as beautiful as its name is unique. Nestled on the western shore of Dworshak Reservoir, it spans a total area of approximately 850 and is chock full of fragrant pines.

Dworshak State Park has plenty of campsites for both tent and RV campers, so settle in for a couple nights. Your pooch will love getting back to nature and sleeping in such a gorgeous setting. Modern restrooms and showers are available. 

If you are only able to visit the park for a day, be sure to pack a lunch and stay for a picnic. A volleyball court, playground, horseshoe pits, and an archery range make this place fun for the whole family. And if you bring your fishing pole, you can try to catch some of the reservoir’s Kokanee, bass, or trout. Your pup would love to have a bite of a fish dinner!

Since camping and fishing are the main draws to the park, hiking is a bit limited. Furtunately, there are a couple trails that you and your pup can explore. For something on the shorter end of things, try Placid View Trail. This delightful trail meanders through the pines and around the park’s amphitheater. It’s only a half mile long, so it won’t tucker your pup out. If you go at just the right time, there will be plenty of blackberries ready for picking.  Big Eddy Trail is definitely more of a challenge. It heads south for about 10 miles and has steep switchbacks and some rocky terrain.  If your pal isn’t up for hiking the entire trail, just go until they are ready to turn back. Don’t forget to always carry a clean up bag and be ready to stoop and scoop.

No bones about it, your furry friend will love Dworshak State Park!
