We have decided to reduce the hours of our sniffspot for the summer due to the influx of camping and pool reservations, meaning there are more people on our property at all times. If you would like to visit our sniffspot this summer, we are happy to open on a case by case situation! Just message me! We look forward to re-opening in the fall! Your dogs will have a blast running around River Camp Dogpark, located on Southside Fort Wayne. We have a large meadow, and woods with more than 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! Walk or drive straight back on the white gravel driveway to the woods, and that driveway leads directly to the trails in the woods, and to the St Mary's River. There is a large meadow in front of the woods to run around in as well! There is a restroom with flush toilet available at the pool (April-October), and in the winter there is a portapotty in the woods. Next to the porta-potty is a water dispenser for handwashing and doggie drinks (disposable dog bowls in the mailbox there, if those are out there are more by the tiki bar) Doggie Supplies (poop bags, dog bowls, milk bones, bug spray etc) are available in a green bin with beige lid at the tiki bar near the pool Follow us on Instagram at Rivercamp_dogpark_fw Facebook: River Camp Fort Wayne, LLC

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.

    What an amazing piece of property. I can't wait to bring my other pups back here to explore.

    I've been here several times but my mom was visiting from out of town so we went yesterday and today and all the dogs loved it!! We have 3 puppies under 2 who absolutely adore this spot. The water is the best part!

    Marla’s River Camp Sniffspot is AMAZING! Just what the pups and I needed! Lots of trails and exciting features, we couldn’t have asked for a better first Sniffspot experience. Marla was also above and beyond on her host duties, very attentive and responsive. 11/5 stars! Can’t say enough about this place!
