This spot is dedicated to our fur babies! It’s the perfect spot to give high drive, high energy, high loving dogs and their humans a safe place to run, bark, learn, train, swim, sniff, relax and smile! It’s a great place to throw a tennis ball, swim, relax, read a book and walk the camp road.


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


Just a heads up…..A tree recently fell down and ripped the power lines off the building. The wires are down across the stairs. CMP came and shut the lines off. The power lines are NOT LIVE. It is scheduled to be fixed. The tree has been removed. The LAST STAIR headed down to the lake is steep. Please be careful. With all the current rain the lake water is high and the beach area is under water but your dogs will still be able to swim! There is a high rock wall that would not be safe for small children. Please be aware. Lastly, there are 2 metal poles right off the edge of the water. They are visible to see. They are for the docking system. The water level is high right now and the dock has been removed to prevent it from floating away.

    Great spot! My two loved the water and catching the zoomies, having plenty of space to run!

    Host replied: So glad you came to check it out and your dogs loved it!

    We had such a wonderful time sniffing and swimming! Mjae was sooo helpful and quick to respond to make sure we found the spot without any issues. We have found our new favorite sniffy spot! Thank you Mjae for sharing this amazing place with us!

    Host replied: What a great night for a swim! So glad you enjoyed it as much as we do!

    This was a terrific spot for dogs and humans alike!!

    Host replied: You certainly had great weather today! Thank you for checking us out!

  • Nancy s., Sep 1, 2023

    We had a wonderful afternoon! Due to erosion from so much rain, wear water shoes and be careful getting in and out. It did not bother any of us, and certainly not the 4 dogs we brought. Really great spot! We will definitely be back. Our host was very helpful.

    Host replied: So glad you had a great client picnic!

    Don’t worry if it seems like you are driving forever down a dirt path. It is a *gorgeous* spot and really nicely maintained. My little swimmer loved chasing dragonflies and the access to the water was really great even without a dock! We will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Haha, so true! The dirt road does seem like forever, especially if you’ve never been down it. Thank you for coming by!

  • Leah C., Aug 12, 2023

    Our second time here & it didn’t disappoint! Our girl loves it and we do too. Thanks for sharing this space with others to enjoy :)

    Host replied: So happy you could make it out this time around!

  • Emma B., Jul 31, 2023

    It’s great to have a nice spot for your dogs to swim and have fun without having to worry about others. With all the rain we’ve had it was defiantly muddy, but other than that it was great!

    Host replied: So much rain 🤦🏼‍♀️, so muddy 🤦🏼‍♀️. I’m happy to hear you had a great time! Thank you for checking it out!

  • Kelsey L., Jul 29, 2023

    Second time this week! We stayed for an extra half hour and it was perfect. The rain has not helped the drive in road at all.. VERY muddy and soft but got through no problem in my AWD. Love having this option so close to home! Sadie is already begging me to go back ☺️

    Host replied: I don’t think the rain is ever going to stop washing out the road 😭. I have never seen anything like this. The water is the highest I’ve ever seen it too. Thankfully, you have AWD. Glad Sadie loves it!! Thank you Kelsey! 🐶

  • Maryanne S., Jul 28, 2023

    This was a lovely quiet spot for us to take our pups for their first water experience. They enjoyed the yard more then the water LOL. It was nice to have a more relaxed setting to try this for our pups. This location was very clean and they have toys and potty bags available for clean up.

    Host replied: Haha, pups are funny! Glad you made your way out!

  • Nicole D., Jul 26, 2023

    What a beautiful spot!!!! I may have enjoyed it more than the pup who’s still unsure about swimming 😬 Directions were helpful. Road was a little rocky in some spots..be careful with low clearance vehicles!

    Host replied: Haha, glad you enjoyed it. The crazy amount of rain we’ve had plus yesterday’s storm has definitely taken a toll on the dirt road and exposed rocks I’ve never seen! Thank you for checking it out!

Hello, dog lovers! I love lake life, the sounds of nature, toasty fires, good music and DOGS! There is nothing better than a day spent on the lake and I want to share that with you!
