The Pomme de Terre State Park in Pittsburg, Missouri is a huge wonderland for both people and their four-legged furballs. The park centers around the 7,800-acre Pomme de Terre Lake where you can fish in the crystal-clear waters from the shore or by boat. You will likely catch something as they offer many different types of fish such as bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, and even Muskie.
If you want to swim, there are two public beaches available where you and Fido can soak up the sun and enjoy the waves. The Pomme de Terre State Park also has a marina, boat docks, camping areas, picnicking spots and several miles of trails for those who have some energy to burn. You can bring along your fur baby, but make sure to keep your pooch secured on a leash less than six feet long at all times.
The camping areas boast of 240 sites that offer both primitive or luxury camping facilities from wooded tent areas to air conditioned and furnished cabins. The amenities for campers include big rig and RV access, Wi-Fi, water, electric, dump stations, restrooms, showers, laundry, a playground, and even a camp store in case you need something. You can also rent kayaks, canoes, boats, and even bicycles at Pomme de Terre.
The park is free to enter, but there are fees to camp which vary depending on what type of camping you want to do. Your furry family members can join you on all of your Pomme de Terre State Park adventures, but they must be on a leash and kept under control during your stay. Do not let your dog annoy the other park visitors or the local wildlife. In addition, you must pick up after your pooch, so be sure to bring some clean up bags to dispose of anything your dog leaves behind.
