doggie things to do in Bangor PA

A friend and I are going to raspberry ridge farm for a herding instinct test and decided to make a weekend of it. We would love to take the dogs to a lake, but I can't seem to find any dog friendly ones in the area. I know the Delaware Water Gap is near by, but according to the website no dogs allowed on the beaches. Any ideas?

There is a state park about 30 minutes from Bangor....I think towards Lehigh area. You might want to try that.

might be way too far or not open but Knoble's Amuzement Park allows dogs.(not sure on that spelling) I think it is about 1.5 hour drive from there

Wow, that would be fun! I'm checking out the website, but can't find any mention of dogs. Is this the place? http://www.knoebels.com/

Re: doggie things to do in Bangor PA

is this the same place that jon katz wrote about in his book(s) ?

I know for sure that pets are allowed in the camping area.

Give them a call! Everybody I know who's been there loves knoebels!

Re: doggie things to do in Bangor PA


Kutzro357 would be the most helpful here. And MaggieRoseLee. They are both from this area and know the dog parks well. I would suggest you PM either one of them. I'm sure they'll help if they can.

Re: doggie things to do in Bangor PA

If you're still interested, Jacobsburg State Park is only about 10 miles west of Bangor. It has some great hiking trails and does allow dogs. Most of the trails are wooded, and it's a great way to see some beautiful scenery and get some exercise too.

Here's a link:

Re: doggie things to do in Bangor PA

http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/statepar...eltzville.aspx catch Country Junction on the way. It`s a dog friendly store.
http://www.countryjunction.com/ then visit Jim Thorpe. It`s an artsy town thats dog friendly. http://www.jimthorpepa.com/ http://www.jimthorpe.org/

http://delawarewatergap.areaparks.com/ Maggieroselee can give you the skinny on DWG as she`s a Ranger.

Jacobsburg is really nice. No lake but a nice creek.

Re: doggie things to do in Bangor PA

Jim Thorpe looks scary. Is that a cool place to spend a weekend?
