If you find it difficult to part with your pet for a getaway, you aren’t alone. Whether you recently adopted a four-legged friend or are just looking to spend some quality time with your canine companion of many years, Wisconsin Dells has you covered in lodging, eateries, and endless adventures. 

Pet-Friendly Hotels and Resorts in Wisconsin Dells

The range is really rather remarkable, from a cottage booked through Sand County Service Company to a suite at Chula Vista Resort. Another fine option is Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort on Lake Delton, already well known for its family-friendly accommodations and amenities, so you know your dog will like it too. 

During the summer months, take your pick from any of the area campgrounds or ask about the pet-friendly units at Birchcliff Resort, where the woodsy setting is quiet and relaxing. Check out the full list of pet-friendly hotels in Wisconsin Dells.


Paw-Some Restaurants and Wineries

Thanks to outdoor seating, your pup can tag along as you nosh on appetizers at The District, overlooking the Wisconsin River; River Walk Pub Food & Spirits, also perched on a bluff overlooking the river, with lots of patio seating to enjoy a Friday fish fry; and Grateful Shed, with a variety of food trucks to tempt taste buds and an indoor/outdoor set-up made for socializing. More pet-approved dining options include:

Tail-Wagging Adventures

Of course, you’ll want to take your pet along to see the sights. For an outdoor enthusiast, you can enjoy a hike at one of the three nearby state parks – Rocky Arbor, Mirror Lake, and Devil’s Lake – or take a scenic tour along the beautiful Wisconsin River with Dells Boat Tours.

If your furry friend prefers a more leisurely stroll, walk through the Scenic River Walk in downtown Wisconsin Dells and take a cute photo of your dog at the Elm Street Plaza mural wall. You can also capture your vacation memories forever with a photo at Old Abe’s Old Time Portraits or Totally 80’s.

If your pup is on the petite side, then you’re a “go” for a ride on the Original Wisconsin Ducks and Dells Army Ducks. Pile in the car and head to Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater for an old-fashioned movie night under the stars.

If you do end up needing doggie daycare, or yummy pet-friendly treats, the owners at Pet Retreat will welcome Fido or Fluffy with open arms.
