Fido and Trigger are welcome guests at Sundance Bear. We will do our best to make them feel at home. We don't allow guest cats because of issues with allergies.
We know having yours with you can enhance your vacation and we are happy to offer this possibility. Please be sure to let us know at time of reservation that your pet is joining you.
Be aware, anytime animals are introduced to a strange situation, things may not go as predicted. You know your pets best and we've never had any problems in 18 years. But our insurance requires a signed liability release form (click Guest Dogs or Horses link below).
With 80 plus acres to roam, a pond (if your dog likes water) and a few quick rabbits, Sundance Bear is "heaven" for your friends.
Bring your horse(s)! The San Juan Mtns are gorgeous! Ride over creeks and through stands of aspen. Marvel at the views from high passes.
Pets are allowed to be with you in the park with restrictions (similar to all national parks). Click on the details above for their official policy. If you'd like, we can help with arrangements for having Fido "stay home" at Sundance Bear.
Also, the park is establishing a low cost doggie-daycare at Morefield Campground. You will be able to have the dog be comfortable while you tour the park. It will not provide overnight accommodations. (As of 5/27/2015, it was not open yet - the link above should give you current info).
Guests wonderfully helped add to one of our Teddy Bears - this now is our version of the native american storyteller.
As of May 2015, for the first time in 40+ years, we are petless. We hope this is a temporary situation, but in the interim, we love to have guest pets visit.
On site, our "friends" include wild turkeys, rabbits (both welcome) with occasional deer, rare bobcat and coyote (not so welcome).
For our long term guests, we are sorry to report we had to say goodbye to Chester in September 2013, Morris in November 2014, Oreo in March 2015 and JD in May 2015.
It has been a rough couple of years for our pets. We loved them and they loved us and guests. We will miss them all.
Our horses are also gone, but with a happier story - they are enjoying their senior years helping visitors enjoy the west at a local guest ranch.
