Fort Laramie Dog Policy

Fort Laramie National Historic Site is Somewhat Dog Friendly

Dogs Allowed
with 6' Leash []

Fort Laramie was originally a fur trading post in the early 1800s, then became a large military post in the plains until it was shut down in 1890. The fort was involved in the history of conflicts between Native Americans and the United States. The National Historic Site offers exhibits in the visitor center, a trail, as well as bird watching, fishing, and picnicking opportunities.

Fort Laramie National Historic Site is somewhat dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on the grounds and along the trail while on a leash, but they are not allowed inside the visitor center. You can leave your dog in your car while you go to the visitor center, but exercise caution, as this can be dangerous to your dog in warmer months.


Trail Policy

Dogs are allowed on the grounds and on the 1.6 mile Confluence Trail while on a leash no longer than 6'.
