One of the longest lakes in the state at almost 13 miles, Ute Lake State Park is a reservoir on the Canadian River. It boasts of a multitude of fun water sports, such as kayaking, motorized boating, sailing, canoeing, and water skiing. It is also the perfect spot for birding, hiking, and fishing.
There is also the Yucca Campground which is made especially for RVs, so if you are ever thinking of going there with the whole family and your four-legged best friend with the RV in tow, you have just the place. Dogs of all sizes are allowed in the Ute Lake State Park at no additional fee, but they can never be left unattended.
Canines are allowed on the trails unless otherwise marked but they have to be kept on a leash always for the safety of other park visitors and animals. If you are a pet parent, you will find that one of the best things about the park is that there is a dog walk area in the campground and dogs are allowed on the camping and tent areas.
However, there is no dedicated area for small dogs, so constant supervision is a must if you do not want your tiny pooch getting trampled or injured by bigger dogs. The Ute Lake State Park’s scenic trails are something to behold, so you might want to take your camera with you for that perfect shot. You can spend countless hours studying nature and fishing round the clock.
Remember to bring your dog scooper bags if you plan on going there with your dog because no scoopers are available for free. There are waste receptacles all throughout the park, so disposal of dog scooper bags is easy. The lake is exceptionally clean and quiet, so Ute Lake State Park is a favorite spot of a lot of park visitors.
