55Amazing property with amenities and kind thorough owner! Can’t wait to come back!
55Fantastic spot and lovely area/roads driving on to get there. We had 1.5 hr drive for a special day trip and it was worth it for two dogs that love to run and jump in the water but reactive to other dogs close by. If your dog is at just the right spot along the fence, they could potentially see someone at entrance to other field about 20 ft away but other than that there's much more distance between play areas. Field and pond are beautiful and well maintained. Several comfortable seating options and dog cleanup stations scattered throughout. Owner comes out to situate you first time which is great so you don't have to wonder if you're doing the gate wrong or anything. We will definitely make another trip out hopefully in next couple months. What lucky dog owners that live nearby!
55We love visiting this spot! Our three dogs have the best time, every time.
55Two visits in a row this weekend and brought new friends who realized their golden doodle loves the water!!
55The dogs always love it so much. Love the added space
55My dog had a blast running through 10 acres of land! Host was friendly and informative. Will definitely come again!
55Fantastic place to visit. Safe & Fun.
55Beautiful, clean-lots of space to enjoy and explore. My dogs loved it; we’ll be back!
55Can’t beat this place for dogs to stretch out and explore!
55Kathy was so helpful and had a great touch when operating their lure coursing rig!
