Missouri Dog Policy
Missouri National Recreation River is Dog Friendly
Missouri National Recreation River encompasses two sections and a total of 100 miles of North America's longest river. Most of the area along the river is wild and natural.
Missouri National Recreation River is mostly dog friendly. Dogs are allowed in most areas while on a leash. Dogs should not be leashed when they're in boats/canoes/kayaks. Dogs are not allowed at swimming beaches and in buildings, however.
Dogs are allowed on trails while on a 6' leash (in Nebraska sections) or a 10' leash (in South Dakota).
There is only primitive camping at Missouri National Recreation River, but dogs are allowed at campsites.
Warning: Hunting is allowed at this location. Please be aware of and familiarize yourself with hunting seasons, and exercise appropriate caution with your dog. During hunting season(s), you may also want to consider having your dog wear a blaze orange vest.
