Adventurous pets can accompany you to the Last Frontier.
Whether you're hopping between rugged beaches and dramatic viewpoints along the Glacier Highway, tackling an epic mountain hike in Denali National Park & Preserve, or escaping to the backcountry in Wrangell-St Elias National Park—Alaska is brimming with outdoor adventures. Four-legged campers are welcome to tag along, and many Alaska national parks and state parks allow pets at campgrounds and recreation areas. Hitting the trail with your dog is possible, but with bears, wolves, and other wildlife around every corner, it's imperative to keep your pooch leashed at all times. Check into a pet-friendly campground or RV park near Juneau, Fairbanks, or Homer; make the most of the off-leash areas at Caines Head State Recreation Area; or bring your fishing tackle, paddleboard, and dog to the lakeside campground at Bear Lake.
