Lakeshore State Park Events

Dogs are welcome at our public events, as long as they are in compliance with the park rule of being on a leash no longer than 8 feet in length. As a reminder to all visitors, no alcohol is allowed in the park (with the exception of on-site purchase of beer at the Urban Island Beach Party). It is typically more windy and cool by the lake during our events, so please dress accordingly.
