Description

As its name suggests, Turlock Lake State Recreation Area sits on the shores of beautiful Turlock Lake. With the Tuolomme River running along the park’s northern border and the warm dry climate of the area, this park is the pawfect locale for some fun in the sun with your furry companion.

The hiking trails of Turlock Lake State Recreation Area are well-established, and there is a lovely artesian well along the back of the canyon wall. Several lookout points dot the area, so you and your furry pal can enjoy puptacular views of the surrounding savannas, nearby orchards and cattle ranches.  

Before hitting the trails with your pup, make sure you have plenty of water. Nobody likes to be dehydrated while hiking, especially not doggos. After your hike, refuel with some lunch at the picnic area. Just don’t forget to bring your pooch some biscuits. Pet parents are required to pick up after their beloved pups, so always have a clean up bag or two on hand.

The park has a furrific campground that’s sandwiched between an impressive sheer bluff and the Tuolomme River. The campsites are tucked away in thick groves of trees, so in the hot summer months your pup will have plenty of shade. Hookups are not available, but trailers up to 27 feet can fit in the sites. To keep campers happy, modern restrooms and hot showers are available, as are stoves and drinking water. So go ahead and pack some sleeping bags and stay an extra night or two. Your pooch will love sleeping under the stars. Be aware that this is a pupular destination and it gets pretty busy between Memorial Day and Labor Day. If your pup isn’t a fan of crowds, visit the park after Labor Day. The nights are still plenty warm.

Your pup will have an unfurgettable time at this park!
