Description

Looking for a new place to take your canine companion? Pack up your pooch and pay visit to Occoneechee State Park. Located on the shore of Virginia’s largest lake, John H. Kerr Reservoir, this gorgeous state park is just calling your pup’s name.

When it comes to hiking, Occoneechee is the place to be. With plenty of trails to choose from, this park will keep your pup busy for hours. Trails range from under half a mile up to 7.5 miles and wander through beautiful wooded terrain. Tutelo Birding-Wildlife Trail and the trail to the Terrace Garden - Occoneechee Plantation site are both pupperific interpretive trails. Your pal can learn about the area while getting in some exercise. Keep in mind a couple of the trails are multi-use, so be sure to keep your dog on leash. And don’t forget to bring plenty of water for your four legged hiking buddy.

Since Occoneechee State Park sits right on John H. Kerr Reservoir, which is also referred to as Buggs Island Lake, it’s no surprise that anglers love this place. The water is full of striped and largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and perch. If your pooch is up for a water based adventure, rent a boat and head out into the lake.

If your doggo is up for ruffing it, bring some sleeping bags and stay a night or two. Occoneechee has 48 campsites that can accommodate both tents and RVs. If your pal enjoys the comforts of home, the park has them covered. For a small fee, dogs can stay in the rustic cabins or lodges. Since the cabins have no TV or phone, you’ll get to spend some quality time with your pup.

Occoneechee State Park is the pawfect place to enjoy some fun in the sun with your favorite furry friend!
