Moraine View State Park is a furrific combination of prairie grounds and glacier land formations that will take your breath away. This 1687-acre state park and recreational center surrounds the beautiful Dawson Lake. It will pawsitively delight your doggo and give them a chance to get some exercise and fresh air.
Treat your pal to a walk on one of the park’s pawsome
trails. Tanglewood Self Guiding Nature Trail is a great option if you are short
on time. At just half a mile, it definitely won’t tire your pup out. But it will
give them a glimpse of an active beaver dam and lodge. Tall Timber Trail is a
bit longer. It clocks in at 1.5 miles and has more challenging terrain. This
trail also leads to the park’s backpacking spots. Don’t forget to pack plenty
of water for both you and your pal. Trail snacks aren’t a bad idea either.
Since Dawson Lake sits at the center of the park, you can
imagine that fishing and boating are quite pupular. Bring your fishing pole and
see if you can reel in some largemouth bass, crappie, channel catfish, or
yellow perch. Or explore the waters on a sailboat or motorboat. Please note
that doggos are not allowed on the designated swimming beaches. When you’re
finished at the lake, reward your pupper’s patience with a hike.
Camping and picnicking facilities are available. Whether you
are visiting for a day or couple of nights, you’ll find everything you need to
have a furrific stay. If you have two legged children in tow, be sure to stop
by one of the play areas so they can get all tuckered out. No matter where you go
in the park, always have a clean up bag and be ready to stoop and scoop. No bones
about, your furry friend will love this park!
