Once you know where Three Rivers State Park is situated, it’s easy to see how this pawsome park got its name. Located just across the border from Georgia, this park is where the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers converge to form Lake Seminole. With gorgeous scenery, this lakeside park is the pawfect place to enjoy nature with your doggo.
The four nature trails are one of Three Rivers State
Park’s main attractions. A leisurely walk on these wooded paths is an ideal way
to enjoy the park’s natural resources and wildlife with your canine buddy. Some
of the flowers you can look forward to seeing are magnolias, dogwood, red bud,
and various herb type plants. Your furry friend will love trotting through the
forest and catching glimpses of Lake Seminole through the trees. All in all there
are about five miles of designated hiking trails, plenty of mileage to get your
pal tuckered out.
Your canine companion won’t be the only critter in these
parts. Keep your eyes peeled for fox squirrels, white-tailed deer, or gray
foxes. Not only can American Bald Eagles be seen flying high above the lake,
if you look up while hiking you may see one of their nests. Also, a wide range
of waterfowl calls the area home.
Furry visitors are welcome in the campground, but are not
allowed in the cabins or group campsites. If you are just visiting for the day,
bring some lunch and take advantage of the park’s puptacular picnic facilities.
Three pavilions, grills, and tables all make the pawfect spot for an afternoon
barbecue. Those who fancy boating can launch from a boat ramp. Fishing is another
favorite activity. Anglers can cast a line from a 100-foot pier in the camping area. Bring all your park essentials, including water and clean-up bags.
For some fun in the sun with your favorite furry friend, head on over to Three Rivers State Park!
