As things keep opening up, weather-wise & otherwise, people continue to look for outdoor activity alternatives. Of course, many are thinking of their family animals & where to take them also.
As you’re following along this site, an earlier installment of about a week ago mentioned the very top-ranked dog-friendly reserves that best cater to Fido. We’ll continue now with the, in comparison, slightly less friendly ones to our canine companions.
Alaska’s Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve, pets are allowed on their back trails & open forest system. While also being allowed into their historic landmark area, they’re not to go inside visitor center buildings. & best to keep Rover on a leash, to keep it from an unfortunate hunting trap encounter.
Mammoth Cave National Park, which is found in Kentucky, doesn’t allow pets in inside environments. That would include any of the caves & cave-like structures. For that very reason, there’s a ready kennel in order for your animal companion to have somewhere to be during your cave exploring.
As long as you’re staying at their cottage hotel, you’d be assigned to pet-friendly amenities. Ditto for the campground, in this case allowing pets anywhere on their premises. & as long as you leash your pooch, more than seventy miles of ground-level trails await your dog companion.
South Carolina includes Congaree National Park. All their trails are meant to be explored by your pup. Even the well-known boardwalk. It goes without saying that its campgrounds welcome pets. Moreover, the in-park adventure guide company allows your dog, as long as it fits & stays, to be in its kayak.
We close for now with a pretty well-known Arkansas reserve: Hot Springs National Park. It’s a more urban place, so it caters even more to pets. On a more popular trail at the park, at either end, one can find places to deal with poop. By the same token, no entering bathhouses or any building on-premises.
As time & opportunity present themselves, we’ll continue to expand on this.
