PETS - Can we bring pets? Are there Restrictions?
Yes, pets are welcome, as long as they are well-behaved. We do have a leash requirement in the park. Also, we ask that you don't leave your dogs in your units for an extended period. They tend to bark and disturb others.
In Island Park, close by, the Paw Spa (208-558-7278) will provide day care for your dog. There is limited availability, so call first. She also can groom your dog. You might ask at the office if anyone is available to walk them for a reasonable fee periodically if you do leave them. Of course, we ask that you pick up your dog’s poop. Anyone with dogs that threaten others or make a continuing nuisance of themselves will be warned and then will be asked to leave if no change happens. Here's the PET POLICY in Yellowstone Nat'l Park.
You can rent from several businesses in the Island Park area. We ask that you do not ride your off-road vehicles within the park, other than to leave your site and exit or enter the park.
