Pet Policy
Fort Laramie National Historic Site welcomes visitors' pets. We do require that all animals are under physical control of their owners at all time. Pets can be carried or on a leash with the lead being no longer than six feet in length. Pets are allowed on the historic grounds but are not allowed in park buildings. Additionally, pets may not be tied to any objects and left unattended.

Pets may be left in vehicles in the visitor parking area, but it is the owner's responsibility to make sure that there is adequate ventilation and cooling/heating for the animal(s). This can be extremely challenging in warmer months.

The Fort has pet watering stations at two locations on the park grounds. Inquire at the Visitor Center for locations.

Horses are not allowed on the park grounds without a special use permit.

Service Animals

The Department of Justice published revised final regulations implementing the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) for title II (State and local government services) and title III (public accommodations and commercial facilities) on September 15, 2010, in the Federal Register. These requirements, or rules, clarify and refine issues that arisen over the past 20 years and contain new, and updated, requirements, including the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (2010 Standards).
