Note:  Google Maps, including satellite view, does not reflect the layout of this revamped welcome center.

 

This rest area has a fenced dog park with areas for large and small dogs.

 

If that wasn't enough, this one of the dog-friendliest rest areas we've been too.  There were many traveling dogs utilizing this great dog stop while we were here.  Several of these dogs had been up in Kansas pheasant hunting over the weekend.

 

If the dog park doesn't meet your needs to stretch, there's a HUGE green spot north of the visitors center which has a great connecting green stretch to another large green area on the southwest.  

 

And if easy, quick access is what you're looking for, dogs can quickly get to an abundant amount of green adjacent to the parking lot on the east.

Dog Park


This great Welcome Center features a dog park!  The large dog area is over 7000 square feet and the small dog area is about 2000 square feet.  Double-gated entry, shaded benches, and water fountains (shut-off for winter season) help make your dog stretching more comfortable.

East Green Area


Adjacent to to the parking lot, there is a long stretch of flat, usable green that is 20 yards deep and stretches for a couple hundred yards.  The dog needed more stretching and roaming can use this walk to get up to the huge north area.

North Green Area


North of the Visitor Center is a wide open maintained area that is easily an acre in size.  From here you can walk around west of the truck parking to another significant green area southwest of the Visitor Center.

West Connector


Along the west side of the truck parking is a wide path of maintained green that connects the North Green Area and the Southwest Green Area.

Southwest Green


Approximately 2/3 acre with a few trees lets traveling dogs get away from the crowds and take care of business.

Visitor Information Center


The Chauffeur said the facilities were very comfortable and clean.  The friendly staff offered complimentary coffee.
