This rest area could be more dog friendly but it does offer enough area for dogs to get a good travel break.  The parking area consists of "parking slabs" that are very narrow.  Signs ask for "No Parking on Grass" but that is very difficult.

 

Dogs are not allowed beyond the guard rails into the picnic area.  This is ashame.  Several more acres and a nice walk along Bowman's Creek would make this a great dog stop.  Visiting late April on a Friday afternoon, there were only 2 other cars making stops here.  The number of parking spots indicate this might get heavier use in the summer; but, the grass growing over the parking slabs suggests otherwise.

 

The restroom facilities for humans consist of 3 port-a-potties; 1 for men, 1 for women, and 1 handicap accessible.

 

At the entrance we noticed gates with signs stating "Closed for the Season" indicating that in winter months this stop would be closed.  The entrance / exit is steep; notably when exiting.  Having to watch traffic from both directions with the steep angle, The Chauffeur was a little nervous when we left.
