Millsite State Park is tucked away on the eastern side of the Manti-La Sal National Forest. Located on the shores of Millsite Reservoir, this park is surrounded by 2,000 foot white sandstone bluffs. The turquoise lake is chock full of rainbow and cutthroat trout. No wonder this is a favorite place for nature lovers!
Boating is one of the park’s most pupular activities. But if your pooch prefers to stay on dry land, take them for a walk around the reservoir. There are all sorts of rocks to climb and trees to sniff. Most trails are unofficial and not on the map, so have fun exploring! If you need some ideas of where to hike, ask one of the knowledgeable Camp Hosts. Not only does this park have puptacular scenery, it also boasts amazing amenities. Picnic tables are available, as are two group pavilions with fire pits. The park also has drinking water spigots, restrooms, and showers to make your stay more comfortable.
Pack some sleeping bags and plan to stay a couple
nights in the park’s campground. Twenty total sites are available. Ten of these
sites are primitive, which means you'll be doing some bare bones, no frills
sleeping. If you're traveling via pop-up
camper or RV, there are an additional ten spots that come with concrete parking
pads, electrical, plumbing, and grilling stations. Five hike-in and boat-in
sites exist near the outer edges of the park, in case your dog is up for
something off the beaten path. Be aware that pups must be on leash in the
Carry drinking water and a bowl while out hiking with your dog. Don’t forget to bring some clean up bags and pick up whatever your pup puts down. Above all else, enjoy spending time with your furry BFF in this pawsome natural setting!
