pet friendly resorts mnPlaces to Take Your Dog on Lake Kabetogama

When you bring your dog on vacation, you’re typically not going to leave them at your accommodations while you head out to adventure. There is a plethora of fun places to take your dog around Lake Kabetogama so that your best bud can get in on all the action. One of the most popular and most exciting activities on Lake Kabetogama is hitting the lake on a boat to either soak up the sun or cast your line and reel in several species of fish.

Rent a boat for the day or bring your own and explore the waters to your heart’s content. So, load up the boat with snacks and a few treats for your pup for a fun day gliding over the waves. Depending on where you stay, fetch off the docks for dogs that enjoy swimming and playing on the beach are fair game for fun activities.

If you and your dog love walks and taking in the northern Minnesota wildlife, there is a lovely 2-mile trail from Highway 11 to the Rainy River Visitor Center. Voyageur National Park may be limited on dog friendly trails, but it’s still worth bringing them with. You can also find more hiking trail options through the Kabetogama State Forest. All areas require dogs to be on leash and it’s always a good idea to make sure vaccination tags are on their collars just in case the information is needed. The best way to find all of the surrounding trails, activities, and eateries that allow your four-legged friends is asking the pet friendly resort that you pick for recommendations. 

When it comes to dining, the best options are grilling out on the deck and enjoying your views of the lake. However, there are a few eateries that allow for dogs to join the dining experience on the patio. The Rocky Ledge is dog friendly and there are plenty of options to order take-out and enjoy in numerous picnic areas like the Woodenfrog State Forest Beach & Picnic area or at your accommodations.
