Description

If Makoshika State Park isn’t on your doggo’s barket list, it will be now. Besides being Montana’s largest state park, it is home to Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops fossils. That’s doggone impressive!  Your furry friend will absolutely love exploring the park’s unique terrain and checking out where these prehistoric critters used to roam.

The vistas and cliff top views make this state park totally worth the trip. Follow one of the pawsome trails so your canine companion can check out the cool rock formations and desert habitat. Choose from hikes like Bluebird Trail, Paramount Trail, Switchback Trail, or Vista Trail. Just think, you and your pup could be walking in the footsteps of dinosaurs! Be sure to carry plenty of water for both you and your pal. Summer temperatures can get pretty hot in these parts.

This 11,000 acre park is a pupular destination for outdoor lovers. Folks come from all around to enjoy archery, mountain biking, hunting, and wildlife watching. Your pup will be glad to know that dogs are allowed in any of the park’s campsites. So pack some sleeping bags and stay a night or two. Day trippers can make use of the pawsome picnic facilities.  

Makoshika State Park has a furrific Visitors Center that is definitely worth checking out. Here you will find interpretive displays, restrooms, paleontology exhibits, and even a Triceratops skull! Four legged visitors are not allowed in the building, so leave your pooch with another member of your paw-ty before going in. Throughout the year the park hosts special events, so check the calendar to find one your pup will enjoy.

There’s no question that Makoshika State Park is truly one of a kind. The views are spectacular, the air is clean and the trails are just waiting to be explored. Your pup is going to love this place!
