For some of us, it's hard to hit the road without our pup. With wide-open spaces, miles of hiking trails and sparkling waters, Western Montana is a great place for a pet-friendly vacation, and there’s plenty of lodging to accommodate your loyal traveler.
Southwest Montana’s ghost towns and historic places tell tales of lingering souls. Whether you are a thrill seeker, ghost hunter or history buff, you’ll love these spooky sites and tours.
Dogs love roaming the hills and rivers as much as we do, and Glacier Country is the perfect getaway for the whole family, including those furry friends.
It's important to note that pets are not allowed on some public lands and waterways, and in other areas they must be leashed. Please be respectful of seasonal and year-round laws and posted signage about pets. Also note that dogs can be considered predators (and prey) to some wildlife, so it’s very important to obey all the rules. Also clean up after your pet, and make sure they have enough food and water while you’re out exploring.
Pet are allowed ON LEASH in most of Montana’s State Parks. Click here for rules and a list of the parks that do not allow pets.Glacier National Park
Within Glacier National Park, pets are allowed in developed areas, in front-country campgrounds and picnic areas, along roads, in parking areas and in boats on lakes where motorized watercraft are permitted. Pets are not permitted on trails, along lake shores, in the backcountry or in any building. Click here for more information.Dog Parks/Runs
Some of Western Montana’s larger cities have off-leash dog parks. Be sure to follow posted signage at each park.
If you’re traveling with your canine companion, you’re not limited to camping and pet-friendly hotels and motels. Plenty of Western Montana ranches, resorts, vacation homes and cabins also welcome pets. See below for pet-friendly lodging options.
Note that service animals are not considered pets, so rules/regulations do not apply.
