Cave Lighting Project
We are undergoing a year-long lighting project in the cavern. Please be aware of caution tape along pathways inside the cave and use due care.
Traveling with Pets
Be aware that having a pet with you will limit your activities and explorations in the park. In addition, desert temperatures, thorny vegetation, and predators may be a serious threat to your pet's well-being.
Please consider the following points before deciding to bring a pet:
The concessioner accepts no responsibility for injuries that might occur during a pet's stay in the kennels and does not require any vaccination records for the pet.
There are three sizes of cages, length x height x width in inches:
Pets are kept in cages relative to their size, such as a small dog in a small cage.
Water is provided for the pet, but the owner must provide food or bedding if they feel it's needed.
Employees do not handle pets and do not remain in the kennel room with the pets.

The first "official" and very influential book on Jim White's adventures in Carlsbad Cavern was written in 1930 by a newsman who at best would today be called a tabloid journalist.
