Tomlinson Run State Park is one of the favorite local summer hangouts in West Virginia. Situated on the northern panhandle, it is about 25 miles from the center of Beaver County. The park has more than 1,300 acres of wide, open spaces that are roughly divided into two open sections; an area full of forested hills, cliffs of sandstones and wilderness, and a developed area with all the modern amenities people can no longer live without.
The state park offers a myriad of activities such as geocaching, hiking, golf, boating, camping, biking, horseback riding, swimming, and other outdoor adventures. Tomlinson Run State Park is also a pet-friendly place, so dogs of all sizes are welcome, but they do have to share the space as large and small dogs alike will be sharing the same space and crossing paths with each other.
People who would like to spend a night or a few nights in the park can choose from camper cabins, yurts, and tent camping. Whatever you fancy, there is always something for you. All sites have grills, picnic tables, showers, laundry facilities, while 39 of these sites have electric hookups. If you do not want to commit to spending a night at the Tomlinson Run State Park, there's picnic shelters that can be reserved by the day for a nominal fee.
Dogs are allowed in state parks, state wildlife management areas, and state forests. However, canines are not allowed in the cabins, as well as swimming pools and state park lodges. A hike with your dog with scenic views of the gorgeous state park is a must-do if you are in the area. Nothing beats the beauty of nature if you want to forget about work or have some time to relax and spend with your pooch. Take your camera with you and snap photos of your pooch having the time of his life.
