Sitting in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the Southwestern Missouri city of Branson beckons outdoor and pet lovers to explore its immense natural beauty. Branson offers plenty of ways to enjoy your vacation with your pets, starting from its pet-friendly hotels, which range from luxury to budget, in and around the downtown area near the city's top attractions and in the beautiful surrounding mountains.

Active dogs will love swimming and hiking at the lakeside Table Rock State Park. If you are looking for a boating adventure, boat docks are available near Branson's Landing Lake Taneycomo via the Branson Lakeside RV Park. The Elmo and Rosalea Marrs Memorial Dog Park in Stockstill Park has a large fenced-in dog park, where dogs can play and socialize off-leash.

You can also bring your pooch to the 1.5-mile boardwalk at the dog-friendly Branson's Landing shopping, dining, and entertainment center along Lake Taneycomo. During warmer months, you can enjoy live music in the center square and stock up on fresh produce and treats at the weekend farmers markets. And don't miss the highlight of the city-the Branson Landing Water Fountains-created by the same company that brought the Bellagio's fountains to life in Las Vegas.

Plan your family vacation in the Ozarks with our list of Branson's best pet-friendly hotels.
