Pet-Friendly Activities in Green River, Utah

If you are interested in bringing your pet along on your travels, there are many dog-friendly things to do near Green River, Utah. From taking in scenic views to trying new and delicious foods, there are endless opportunities to explore and have fun with your canine friend by your side. 

Hit the Trails

Many popular destinations like Canyonlands and Arches National Park only allow leashed pets in parking lots, in campgrounds and on paved roads, which still provide beautiful views of a unique landscape. Dead Horse Point State Park, however, offers accessible hiking trails to eight overlooks over the Colorado River and allows on-leash pets to experience it with you. 

Some parks closer to home, including Goblin State Park and the San Rafael Swell, are also pet friendly and offer plenty of opportunities to get out and explore. Some popular hikes include: 

  • Moonshine Wash
  • Little Grand Canyon
  • Wild Horse Creek 
  • The Chute of Muddy Creek
  • Ernie Canyon
  • Corona Arch Trail (Moab)

Stay Cool

For those who love being on the water, the Moab Rafting and Canoe Company provide the opportunity to paddle down the Colorado River with the help of your four-legged friend. You can plan a multi-day excursion or plan a jam-packed afternoon floating downstream while enjoying a picturesque landscape. 

Ken's Lake is also a great option in the Moab area to take a dip, let your pup swim free and take a break from the intense Utah heat. You can also take a short drive from our campground to Green River State Park or Swasey's Beach and relax beneath some cottonwoods while your pet gets some much-needed time in the water. 

Enjoy Tasty Food

If you get hungry from all your adventures, Green River is home to plenty of dog-friendly eateries and restaurants for you and your furry friend to try out. The Tamarisk Restaurant is one of our favorites and is right next door. You can bring your pup along and enjoy some delicious foods at a 10% discount for staying with us. 

Ray's Tavern is a loved spot that opened in 1943 and offers American food at its finest. Plus, they love when you bring your pets to their outside tables!
