Tippecanoe River State Park is beautiful slice of wilderness that seamlessly combines history with nature. The Potawatomi occupied the land as far back as the 1600's. Then Canadian fur traders showed up and in the 1830's the area was farmed and settled. Today, pets and their people come to enjoy the wandering river and surrounding terrain.
Tippecanoe River State Park is paradise for dogs that love to hike. There are nearly two dozen miles of hiking trails just waiting to be explored. They range from a mile all the way to 4.7 miles, so there is something for all energy levels. Be sure to carry plenty of water for both you and your furry friend and yield to equestrians as appropriate. The park is home to many types of animal, bird, and plant life. To help preserve the delicate ecosystem, help your pup stay on the designated trails.
Stay a night or two in the park so your pooch has plenty
of time to check out the epic trail system. Tippecanoe River State Park has a campground
with 112 sites that can accommodate both RVs and tents. Besides hiking and
camping, visitors can bike, boat, fish, and watch for birds. Also available on
the property is a nature center and a playground suitable for young children. Pack
a sandwich and find a spot by the river to eat or you can make use of the picnic

want to come back to this furrific park again and again!
