The Scenic State Park is a nature lover's paradise. Impressive sceneries, wildlife, and pristine lakes are just a few of the main attractions. Hiking the Chase Point Trail must be on your "to-do" list, as it is the only way to enjoy mesmerizing views of Coon and Sandwick Lakes - famous for offering great fishing experiences.
If you love the sound of the wind whirling through the giant pines, this is the right place for you. The Scenic State Park conserves the virgin pine shorelands of the above-mentioned lakes, plus other parts of the Lake of the Isles, Tell Lake, Cedar Lake, and Pine Lake.
Located in the Laurentian Mixed Forest, the landscape is abundant with aspen-birch, red and white pine, jack pine and all sorts of mixed hardwood. When it comes to the wildlife, the Scenic State Park is home to over 40 species of animals and birds, including bald eagles, loons, jays and a great variety of songbirds.
The overnight facilities include several campsites and a cabin. You can get to the campgrounds by boat, car or walk. Bird watching, canoeing, hiking, and fishing are some of the activities available here. Although this park is pet-friendly, there are a few simple rules you have to keep in mind to ensure that everyone is having a good time.
You must keep Fido on a leash at all times during your stay in the park. As an owner, you are responsible for proper removal of your furry companion's waste and make sure you have a poop bag handy. Dogs are allowed in most campgrounds, trails, and roads as long as they are supervised. The Scenic State Park is a fun place for dogs indeed! Pack your bags and take Fido on a lifetime adventure. Hike, swim and enjoy breathtaking vistas together with your best friend!
