Under the Doggywood Tree
At Tennessee’s Dollywood, there’s something for everyone, even the family dog

Visiting eastern Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains this summer? If so, be on the lookout for Dollywood, the Pigeon Forge, Tenn., amusement park named for country music star Dolly Parton. It has something for everyone, even the family dog. Though only service animals are permitted inside the park, your pet can wait for you in comfort at Doggywood, a climate-controlled indoor day-care facility.

With both kennel runs (4 x 6 feet, $12) or cottages ($30, with comfortable beds and faux fireplaces) in a rustic cabin setting, Doggywood provides your dog with a place to spend a relaxing day while you enjoy the roller coasters and live entertainment. You can even take time out to exercise your dog in the dog-walking area next to the facility without leaving the park. These accommodations are daytime only (no overnights), and space is limited—call early to make a reservation.
