South Dakota Pet Friendly Hotels & Lodging

This vast and sparsely populated state may be famous for Mount Rushmore, but this presidential monument is far from the only reason to visit South Dakota. From its stunning mountain and badland views, to its rolling plains, where wild buffalo still roam, to its preserved historic buildings and sites, South Dakota has much to offer any traveler.

South Dakota is easy to travel with pets; from scenic car rides through the state’s wilderness areas, to fishing on tranquil lakes, to visiting one of the state’s numerous beautiful dog friendly parks, which can be found in and around cities like Sioux Falls, Rapid City and Yankton.  
Many South Dakota hotels, motels, inns, and vacation rentals welcome pets. Whether you are looking for a simple pet friendly hotel room, or a cabin in the woods, a resort, or a secluded bed and breakfast, this state has the right lodging for you and your four-legged friend.
