South Dakota Pet Friendly Lodgings


Though you and your pet are only allowed in special areas adjacent the parking lot at Mount Rushmore National Park, you can drive the Peter Norbeck National Scenic Byway through the Black Hills and be treated to a beautiful framed view of the presidents' heads from the comfort of your bucket seats. Traveling can really build up an appetite, so be sure to stop in Custer at the Flintstones Drive-in and split a Brontoburger with your pooch. And whether you're in Pierre or Sioux City, know you'll find a pet-friendly hotel, motel, lodge, ranch, inn, b&b, or campground to welcome you.

Pet Policy: We welcome guests traveling with their well-behaved pets. We understand that they are an extension of your family. As we consider "furry family members" to be additional guests, a $15 per pet, per night fee will be added to your lodging total. This added fee helps us offset the cost of the extra cleaning we do to ensure that other guests, with allergies, are not adversely affected by your pet's visit. Guests with Horses: Horse owners are charged a non-refundable $15 fee per horse, per night. This fee is added to your account when checking in. Guests must provide proof of a current health certificate (obtained within 30 days) and a Coggins test (within one year) for each horse. Guests will need to provide for and feed their own horses.
