The traveling dog will want to stop here for the ACRES of green.  The dog's human will enjoy the unique visitor center.

 

On both the east and west (across truck parking) sides, dogs will find wide patches of green running a couple hundred yards.  The usable green on the east next to the car parking is about 40-50 feet deep.  The green area on the west across the truck parking is larger.

 

On the north side between the car and truck entrance drives is another large patch of green over an acre in size.  For dogs wanting some extra exercise or privacy, about 2 acres of green is available on the south end between the car and truck exit lanes.  This patch is most easily accessible from the truck parking side of the visitor center island but not difficult from either side.

 

The only down side to this stop was the litter.  We visited on a Sunday afternoon so maybe what we saw is not typical during the week.
