Pet Friendly

Rex, Leave that Llama Alone!
We have identified those locations on our website where pets are welcomed. By pets, we mean dogs so we give no assurances as to whether your pot belly pig or pet snake will be allowed to stay. We have focused our efforts on identifying where you can take your pooch when you are looking for swimming holes, hiking trails, campgrounds or lodgings. We did that because we didn’t think many people would take their dogs kayaking or mountain biking. If you don’t find a site offering the activity of interest to you that also welcomes dogs, do not give up hope. There undoubtedly are more places that will let you bring your dog than we have labeled as pet friendly, but we wanted to be conservative and only identify places that we are relatively confident will welcome your dog.
