If you and your pooch like to explore new places, then be sure to add the John James Audubon State Park to your list! This park features picnicking, hiking, camping, boating, fishing, bird watching, golf, a museum, a nature center, playgrounds, and tennis courts all on this vast, beautiful land.
The John James Audubon State Park has trails for hiking that are approximately one-quarter of a mile to one and a half miles. Most of the trails are regarded as easy to moderate and are relatively short, but your four-legged friend is only allowed on Eagle Glen Pet Trail. Whenever he is in the park, he must be on a leash no longer than six feet.
Your pooch can also join you at the campground if your pooch stays on the leash. The campground is home to 69 campsites, which has showers and bathrooms, wifi availability, and picnic tables and grills. The campgrounds are typically open during the summer months only and closed December through March first. Unfortunately, the campgrounds are closed for the 2018 and 2019 camping season due to construction.
The John James Audubon State Park also have picnic areas, where you can set up a beautiful afternoon of grilling and relaxing at one of the tables provided. There are four picnic shelters available, and one has a restroom; they can be reserved up to one year in advance. If you love tennis, be sure to reserve the picnic area with the tennis court nearby.
Wherever you're visiting in the park, make sure you keep your dog on his leash and immediately pick up after your dog. You'll need to pack plenty of plastic poop bags to follow the carry in/carry out nature lover's policy. You'll also need to take plenty of water if you're hiking. Your dog is not allowed in buildings, nature preserves, and you must notify the campground if you plan on taking your pooch camping with you.
