This stop is more for the dogs than people amenities.  The official dog walk is on the west end around the water tower.  Just beyond the water tower you will find a paved service path / road.  This paved path is a couple hundred yards long and helps keep the paws drier during rainy times.

 

On the near side of the path (east and south) traveling dogs will find an abundance of green area.  There is approximately 1.5 acres of level, maintained green for dogs to sniff and stretch.

 

If you're in a hurry and just need some gas for the dog ride, near the Phillips 66 pumps is a spot about 40 feet deep and 125 feet long.  This area is heavily used and we noticed several dog deposits.
