Description

A unique natural rock bridge, dramatic sandstone cliffs, cool summer swimming, camping, and great fishing. These are some of the puptastic things which you can look forward to when you visit Lake Malone State Park with your pooch.

Lake Malone State Park has been a favorite of locals for decades, thanks in part to its pet-friendly policy. Dogs are allowed on the trails, giving dog owners a great opportunity to bond with their pets, explore the surrounding areas, and have fun at the same time. For a quick stroll, hop on the Wildflower Trail. It’s only a quarter of a mile, so it won’t tire your pup out. Laurel Trail is 1.5 miles and passes a pawsome waterfall and runs along part of the shoreline. Both trails take you by unique rock walls that were once used by Native Americans as shelter.  Don’t forget to bring some bags and clean up after your doggo.

This state park is considered a gem because of its scenery, and most people find one day not enough time to discover the area and its natural beauty. The campground is easy to get to and features furrific amenities like showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities. RV and tent sites are available. Grills and picnic tables make the sites ideal for cooking up some delicious grub and chilling with your friends.  

Lake Malone also happens to be a fishing paradise. It is perfect for both experienced and novice anglers. Visitors can try catching many of the lake’s inhabitants such as bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, red ear sunfish, and channel catfish. If you do not have gear, you will be happy to know that there is a “fishing loaner program” at the park where visitors can borrow equipment and other items at no additional fee.

No bones about, Lake Malone State Park will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!
