Where can I take my dog?

Dogs are welcome in the designated campgrounds, on designated roads where vehicles are allowed, and on the trail from the Visitor Center to the Campground.  For the protection of wildlife and your dog, they are not allowed in the backcountry, on trails, or in the wildflower fields.

  • Please keep your dog calm and quiet. Vicious or unusually noisy dogs will not be allowed in the park.
  • At night, please keep your dog in your tent or vehicle to prevent conflicts between your dog and other dogs or passing campers.
  • Dogs must remain on a leash no longer than six feet and be under physical control at all times.
  • Please remember to clean up after your dog.
