Spring Valley State Park has a unique pink, light-gray, and white backdrop, thanks to the volcanic tuff and sediment in the surrounding areas. The park is very popular for camping, swimming, and boating and the tours to historical ranches built in the 1800s.
The stone cabins, corrals, and rusted farming equipment eloquently narrate the stories of hardworking women and men who tried to tame the land and make their homes in the valley. The Stone Cabin is a must-see when you visit the state park. Other activities which you can indulge in when at the park are hiking, picnicking, group areas, and a boat launch.
This pet-friendly location welcomes dogs of all sizes and breeds, as long as they are on a leash not longer than six feet. However, there is no dedicated area for tiny and timid pooches, so they eventually cross paths and mingle with larger canines. It is of utmost importance for pet parents to ensure the safety of their pet, as well as the safety of other people from their pets.
There are no dog scooper bags in the park, so pet parents must bring some to pick up after their pooches. There is a developed trail connecting the Stone Cabin and Ramp Campgrounds. Take your four-legged best friend on a walk around the reservoir and see terrific views of the valley. Better yet, take a few photos of you and your pooch, so you have something to look back on with a smile.
Eagle Reservoir, is a primary attraction and a favorite fishing hole of anglers because of its abundance of trouts. This 65-acre reservoir is managed as a put-and-take sports fishery, and it is not uncommon to see plenty of people fishing to their heart’s content. There is a nominal fee of $5 to enter the park and use the facilities.
