Located on Springwater Road, about four miles east of Estacada along the Clackamas River, the Milo McIver State Park offers families a wide variety of outdoor adventures. This large park even features a pawtastic Off-Leash Area with four lush acres to satisfy your dog's need to be free!
The off leash area is located on South Entrance Road on the west side of the park, just to the left of the ranger station. A small parking area is convenient for you to park right in front. Once onto the off leash space, you can unclip the leash and let your dog romp. Note that the area is not fenced and consists only of a large mowed piece of land near the road, so be sure your dog stays under voice control at all times.
With few amenities, this pupperdise is ready for a game of fetch or canine socialization. A few picnic tables offer a place to relax while watching your pup get their play on. Bring your own drinking water and a bowl for your thirsty pup. Also have clean-up bags on hand and always pick up whatever your dog leaves behind. At the ranger station, you can find human restrooms.
When your dog has had enough of the off leash area, clip on the leash and explore the rest of Milo McIver State Park. If you and your dog love the water, a boat ramp and miles of the Clackamas River offer the chance to put in a boat, raft or canoe. There's also a fishing dock if you prefer a relaxing afternoon casting a line on the shore. A disc golf course with discs available to rent is pawfect for the sporties. Your pup may prefer a furrific hike along one of the many trails. Stretching for 7 miles, you and your dog can explore forest, meadows, hillsides and the shoreline of the river along these trails for hours. With shelters and picnic areas too, you can picnic with your pup, or plan a social gathering.
Want to make it a vacation? Stay in one of the campsites, both electric and primitive. There's also hiker and biker sites and group sites. Showers, water and toilets are available too.
To access the park, there is a daily fee of $3 per vehicle. If you plan on visiting often, you can get an annual pass for $25. Camping is available from March 15th to October 31st, but the park is open year round for day use activities, including the woofderful dog park!
