Description

Pinckney Recreation Area is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream! So if your doggo loves being out in Mother Nature, they will pawsitively adore this beautiful area. It spreads across a whopping 11,000 acres and is in both Livingtston and Washtenaw counties.

The first thing your pal will want to do when they arrive is hit the trails, and who can blame them? With over 40 miles of trails, this area is just begging to be explored. Find access to the trail system at Silver Lake day use area. Even though all trails are open to hikers, some are extremely pupular with mountain bikers. If you want to steer clear of cyclists, hop on the Lossee Lake Trail. This three mile loop is for hikers only.

Besides furrific hiking trails, the Pinckney Recreation Area has a chain of lakes. Fishing and boating are available at Silver Lake. Camping is also pupular at this gorgeous park. Bruin Lake Campground has over 150 modern sites. For more of a primitive experience, check out the Crooked Lake Campground. If you and your pooch truly want to ruff it, stay at one of the backpacking sites that are located just off the well-known Potawatomi Trail.

Pinckney Recreation Area is also home to two day use areas that are fully equipped with pawsome amenities. You will find picnic tables, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and a playground. Modern restrooms are available during the warmer months. Keep in mind doggos are not allowed in the lakes or on designated beaches. Be sure to pack water to share and clean-up bags for your adventure.

Please note all park visitors must have a Michigan Recreation Passport. This can be purchased for $11.00 at the time of vehicle permit renewals for Michigan resident, or can be purchased at the park entrance. This puptacular pass gives you and your pup access to all Michigan state parks for an entire year. Recreation Passports are also available to non-residents.

Make no mistake, your furry friend will absolutely love spending time in this puptacular park!
