Description
Looking to escape the busyness of city life for a few days? Bring Fido and the family to visit Watkins Woolen Mill State Park! Located in Lawson, Missouri, this lovely recreational area and campground sits beside the Watkins Woolen Mill Historic Site, the home of a preserved 19th-century wool mill. The property still houses an old church and school building dating back to the time when the mill formed a part of a booming industry for the region. The mill has been declared a National Historic Landmark and draws a lot of interested visitors each year. Tours of the grounds are conducted daily for $4. 

This pawrific park is home to a 100-acre lake which teems with bass, sunfish, crappie, and catfish, making it a haven for avid fishermen. The shores make an ideal beach setting, and many families love to lounge in the sand or splash in the lake on a hot summer's day. Your dog is welcome to join you at Watkins Woolen Mill State Park, on a leash of no greater than six feet in length at all times. Dogs also need to be current on vaccinations and have a city dog license. Be sure to bring drinking water to share with your adventure pup, and clean up bags, and pick up whatever your dog lays down. Human restrooms are available.

Watkins Woolen Mill State Park charges no fees for admission to this historic property. Visitors love that this tranquil, rural park is quite near to metropolitan Kansas City, making it possible to visit the big city in the daytime and retire to the country at night. Among the most popular activities at Watkins Woolen Mill State Park are fishing, camping, picnicking, boating, biking, and horseback riding. Also housed on the grounds are a museum and a souvenir shop. Watkins Woolen Mill State Park is also a haven for many species of wildlife including white-tailed deer and wild turkeys. 

Bring your pup for an adventure today at the Watkins Woolen Mill State Park!
