Looking into 2024 – Info & News

This is the time of year when we usually announce reservation information for the coming year. With heavy hearts we announce the retirement of the big dog inn. No reservations will be available for 2024 and beyond. After twenty-one years, Sweet Willy needs a rest, and so do we.

The big beagle will remain an iconic Idaho roadside attraction. Your no-cost visit to see the dog up close and to visit in our dog carving studio where we will happily chat about our art, the history of Dog Bark Park, and much more will still be available. Sometimes we may not be at the studio so please be in touch ahead of your planned visit to check our schedule. Our online store is always open to browse our many dog carvings which will continue to be made until we exhaust our current supply of wood.

We deeply appreciate your interest and support of Dog Bark Park. Continue to be in touch here for future postings about our new projects and undertakings.

May the New Year be full of successes and wonders for you and yours.
