You may not know that Eureka Springs loves your dogs too!
Many family friendly lodging places in Eureka Springs are also pet friendly. Call ahead for more details. Don’t want to bring fido? No problem. If you choose to stay at the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, you will likely be greeted by Jasper or Casper… the Crescent Hotel cats. The 1886 Crescent Hotel has housed family friendly felines since the 1950’s. Ask your kids to find the private little “cat door” belonging to Jasper and Casper!
The Path to Eureka Springs is Pet Friendly
Many state parks do not allow dogs on their trails. No need to worry about that in Eureka Springs. Home to hundreds of area trails, a leashed pet is welcome to discover the beauty of the Ozark Mountains right alongside you.
Don’t miss the Eureka Springs Bark Park at Harmon Park near Dairy Hollow.
Feel free to treat your furry friend too. Blackie’s Backyard has top of the line pet products and food, wholesome treats made locally along, and a huge assortment of stylish accessories you won’t see anywhere else.
