Description

Situated on the southwest shore of Enid Lake, George P. Cossar State Park is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. This lakeside park is the pawfect spot to let your four legged friend enjoy some time in nature.

There’s no question that watersports are the park’s main draw. After all, Lake Enid is a whopping 28,000 acres. If your pup doesn’t mind a water based adventure, launch your boat and cruise around the lake. Please note that canine guests are not allowed in designated swimming areas or beaches. If your pup prefers to stay on dry land, follow the nature trail so they can get some exercise. This furrific state park also has a disc golf course, a playground, and miniature golf. Picnic sites and pavilions are also available.

Most of the land around Lake Enid, including George P. Cossar State Park, and the nearby Holly Springs National Forest is open for hunting. Check local regulations and if you and your pup are visiting during hunting season, take every precaution to stay safe. Additionally, Lake Enid is a favorite fishing spot. Fun fact- in 1954 a world record crappie was caught. While you may not take home record breaking fish, bring your pole and try to snag some bass, bream, or catfish.

Does your pooch like sleeping under the stars? Then spend the night in either the Yocona Ridge or Jones Creek Campground. Each campsite is equipped with a picnic table, grill, and full hookups. And to keep campers smelling nice and fresh, there are even hot showers and laundry facilities. Keep in mind that George P. Cossar State Park is a pupular destination, so reservations are highly recommended.

Don’t forget to carry some clean up bags and stoop and scoop when necessary. Above all else, have a woofderful time with your pup in this pawsome park!
