Dog Friendly Hotels In St. George, Utah

St. George, Utah is a gem. It’s the largest city in the Southern Utah area and has so much to offer for a weekend (or longer) trip with your dog. Here’s a list of St. George’s best dog friendly hotels so you won’t have to leave your best friend at home. 

Why Visit St. George With Your Dog?

St. George stands as a beacon of adventure and natural beauty, making it an irresistible destination for travelers seeking both relaxation and outdoor adventures. Nestled in the southwestern part of the state, near the Arizona and Nevada borders, it’s a gateway to some of the most stunning landscapes the American Southwest has to offer. 

Visitors are drawn to its mild winter climate, which provides year-round access to a myriad of outdoor activities. From hiking and biking on the vast network of trails to exploring nearby Zion National Park and the Mojave Desert, the area is a paradise for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts. 

The city itself, with its vibrant arts scene, historical sites, and charming downtown area. Not to mention, it is a paradise for golfers and people who love lounging by a pool in the sun. St. George also has a fun food scene, featuring everything from local classics to fine dining with a view. 

Just a quick safety reminder, Southern Utah is a desert climate meaning it gets really hot and dry in the summer. Please make sure you are always bringing plenty of water for you pup while adventuring and avoid spending too much time outside during the hottest part of the day.

Is Zion National Park Dog Friendly?

Zion National Park is not particularly dog friendly as it does not welcome dogs in most areas. Dogs are not allowed on shuttle buses that provide access to the park or in any of the wildlife areas. Dog ARE welcome on the Pa’rus Trail, which begins at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center. This is the only trail in Zion National Park that dogs are allowed to use. We’d recommend leaving your dog instead with a local boarding facility while you enjoy unfettered access to the park!

St. George State Parks

Utah’s State Parks are dog friendly, and St. George has three close by! As with all Utah State Parks, your dog must be kept on a six foot leash and under your control while in the parks. 

First, there’s Sand Hollow, a gorgeous Red Rock lake perfect for dogs and their humans who love to swim, kayak and paddle board. 

If you’re really into hiking or biking, Snow Canyon is the State Park for you. With a vast network of trails and incredible site seeing. It’s a one of kind place. 

Gunlock State Park is another option for exploring with your dog. During the annual Spring runoffs, Gunlock is transformed into a violent, rushing waterfall. It is a site to behold, but use caution when playing with your dog near the water, it moves fast! During the other seasons, Gunlock is a fun lake to hang out at with your dog. 

Remember, when exploring Utah’s State Parks with your dog, be respectful. Make sure you are always cleaning up after your pup and following the rules, we want these magical places to remain open to our four-legged friends for years to come. 

Here is our comprehensive guide to visiting Utah’s State Parks with your dog.

Now, let’s get to the hotels.
