Durango Riverside Resort is a Pet Friendly Park.
We've had the pleasure of meeting every purebred and mixed breed of dogs imaginable. A few cats and even a rabbit have been our guests!
Our thanks go out to the many responsible pet owners who have stayed with us!
PET OWNER GUIDELINE
Please make sure we have the emergency cell phone number that you have with you.
There is a 3 dog maximum at $5.00 per dog for a one time fee (not nightly). Dog maximums vary for the cabins. Please ask when you make a reservation.
Dogs must be on a leash at all times. For the safety and comfort of others, do not let them go through people's sites. A leashed dog is a safer dog from the host of critters that may travel through our park as well as vehicles. We have had black bears, deer, elk, raccoons, bobcats, wild turkeys, and squirrels. If you will be walking them after dark, it's a good idea to have something on their collar that will make a little noise. We use bear bells during bear season, which we sell in our gift shop.
Please pick up after your pet. There are 3 pet refuse stations for your convenience.
Do not leave pets unattended. Dogs must not be left in the cabins. If you leave pets tied up or alone we will have to call you and you will have to return and take care of your pet. The good news is, we have a couple of options. If you plan on riding the train and cannot take your dog with you, please make plans ahead of time. For our RV guests, we recommend Joy who is a petsitter. Usually pets that are used to traveling in their RVs do well. They are used to the rig as their home. Joy will meet with you and your pets to discuss what you need. For our cabin guests or for those whose dogs prefer a play day with other dogs, Healthy Hounds and Fat Cats Kennel is located in town near the train station, and they will accommodate special requests, knowing that the train departs early and arrives late. They are also located next to our pet park and even have a pool that is open in the summer months.

Luckily, Durango is a very pet friendly city where you may take your dog into most stores.
Pets are not permitted inside the playground and pool area, for health and safety reasons. If you decide to be at the pool, someone must stay with the dog at your site.
Sorry, wolves and wolf-hybrids are not allowed.
Not only do we have a petsitter who lives behind us, we have Baker's Bridge Animal Hospital next door!
Please note that our park is predominately gravel with a few grassy areas in some of the sites. There are many places to exercise your dog outside of the park. We have a great hiking trail about 100 yds from here. Baker's Bridge is an easy 5 minute walk down the street. That is the location where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid jumped from the rock into the water for the movie!
We love our 4 legged kid guests, and want you to enjoy your time with them while on vacation! Don't forget to register your dogs when you arrive, they all get treats!
Please feel free to call us with any concerns or questions.
