Description
The Rock Bridge Memorial State Park finds its home in Columbia, Missouri. This beautiful recreational center is also home to an area of great geological significance. Housed on the property's over 2,273 acres of land is the Gans Creek Wild Area, a section of land known for its serene atmosphere, making it the ideal spot for a day of reflection and relaxation. The Devil's Icebox is also found on the premises and is well-renowned for its sinkholes, springs, and underwater stream. 


This Boone County park welcomes dogs to join their owners on the grounds but does require that they remain leashed at all times. It is unknown if there are any on-site amenities for canine or human use. With this in mind, it is best for owners to carry drinking water and clean up bags with them to ensure they have access to all of the things needed for a day at the park. It is important to note that it is expected that all families will display responsible pet ownership by cleaning up after their pets and disposing of their waste properly.

Rock Bridge Memorial State Park offers admittance to their grounds at no cost. Unlike many state parks, there are no camping facilities on the premises, and the park is only operational during daylight hours. The on-premise hiking trails are some of the best in the state, and visiting families flock to them from all over the country. Some of the most popular activities at this lovely state park include hiking, biking, and picnicking. Many families also love to explore Connor's Cave, though they do note that the steps leading into the cave are quite slippery when wet. Due to the presence of bats, dogs are not permitted in any of the caves. Weather conditions vary at Rock Bridge Memorial State Park, but visitors are advised to bring a sweater with them when exploring caves and underground areas as it can be quite chilly there.

All canine visitors to Rock Bridge Memorial State Park must be up to date on all immunizations. In accordance with Missouri dog by-laws, a city dog license tag should also be displayed on each dog's collar. Looking to explore some of America's finest geological treasures? Why not bring Fido and the family on a trip to Rock Bridge Memorial State Park?
