First Time Users! Your dogs will have a blast running around Rivercamp Dogpark, located on Southside Fort Wayne. We have a large meadow, and woods with about 1/2 mile of maintained trails. The woods run right up to the St Marys River behind us, and there is a creek that borders the side of our property. When the river level is low, there is a rocky beach so your dogs can swim! Plenty of squirrels to chase! Follow us on Instagram at Rivercamp_dogpark_fw


100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.


I recommend rain boots if there has been wet weather recently. We have trails in the woods that can be muddy after rain or snow melt.

  • Aidan G., Dec 12, 2022

    It was great to be able to let my reactive dog run free and be a dog at this sniffspot! We definitely recommend!

    We had such a wonderful visit at marla’s sniffspot! The pups enjoyed getting the freedom to run through the woods and sniff all the new scents. It was a very quiet and peaceful location. The paths were also kept very clean in the wooded area. Very reasonably priced as well! Definitely will be coming back to visit! Especially once it warms up so the pups can swim in the river.

    Dogs loved it. It was our first visit, so we kept off leash time to a minimum. Will definitely return to enjoy the scenery and let the dogs explore.

    Thanks for opening your space up to doggos. With the river, the woods and the meadow area, there's so much for them to explore. Jasmine loves running around on the trails!

    Had a spooky time out at Rivercamp today!

    Porter loved being able to choose her own path through the woods via the interconnected trails. The Halloween decor was really fun; the orange and black spider was definitely a favorite for Port!

    Wonderful area with lots of different spots to explore. Meadow grassy area, woods, paths, river. Even chairs for us humans to rest on for a bit! And the owner is so nice and fabulous!
