Pet Policy

Kentucky State Parks Are Now Pet Friendly!

We do charge an additional fee of $30 plus applicable tax per stay in our lodges and $50 plus applicable tax per stay in cottages (pets are not allowed in the cottages at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park). We know that your pet is very clean already but we do extra work on every pet friendly room after each guest checks out.

Pets are allowed only in designated areas and are not permitted inside restaurant or other public areas (unless it's a service animal permitted under the provisions of KRS 258.500). Park Management reserves the right to prohibit any pet on the premises that may pose a risk to our guests or staff. No more than two pets are allowed per room/cottage.

Pets may be brought into state park campgrounds as long as they are on a leash. Pets are not allowed on any park trails that share land with State Nature Preserves or are in protected archaeological areas. This includes Wickliffe Mounds SHS and all but one trail at Natural Bridge SRP and John James Audubon SP. Also, a few trails at Cumberland Falls, Carter Caves, Pine Mountain, and Blue Licks Battlefield State Parks are part of nature preserves.  These trails will be posted as such. 

Guests that bring a pet into an accommodation without prior notification and paying the fee will be charged a fee of $50 plus applicable tax per stay and a $100 extra cleaning fee.
