Marietta - Pet-Friendly National, State & Local Parks


Sope Creek National Recreation Area

Paper Mill Rd.,
Marietta, GA
Park entrance is on Paper Mill Road between Terrell Mill Road and Johnson Ferry Road. Pay $2 to park. This is a great place to take dogs for a hike/swim. Take the path past Sibley Lake and start heading down the trail towards the creek and the old paper mill ruins. There are lots of rounded rocks, rapids and tide pools at the creek, which dogs just LOVE to romp around in. But bring a towel for them, that water can be chilly, even in the Summer!
