The Wind Cave National Park is known for the extensive cave systems that can be found all throughout the park. The park is located in South Dakota and was first established in 1903 by the 26th President of the United States - Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. The park holds the distinction of being the first cave that was re-purposed to serve as a national park in the entire world, being the 7th national park to have been established in America. Dogs are allowed to visit the Wind Cave National Park thought they must be kept on a leash at all times and can only visit certain areas.
The Wind Cave National Park still has a number of attractions that dogs can experience despite not being able to visit some of the park's other areas, making the area a worthwhile tourist destination if you and your pet are out in South Dakota. Being one of the last few wilderness areas to remain relatively untouched by mankind, the agencies and organizations that look over the park are naturally very concerned with trying to preserve the land, and the wildlife that inhabits it, for as long as possible. So if you're feeling a little disappointed that you can't take your dog inside any of the park's caves, take solace in the fact that you and your dog will be doing your part to preserve the area by abiding by the park's rules.
