Pets

Due to the extreme temperatures experienced in the park, dogs are welcome on the trails at Tuzigoot National Monument. If you visit during the summer months, please do not leave your dog in your parked vehicle. Even with the windows rolled down slightly, temperatures inside a locked car can climb to over 140 degrees!

However, all dogs must remain on a leash (no longer than 6 feet) and under control at all times. Pet owners are required to clean up after their dogs and prevent them from harming park plants and wildlife. Dogs are not allowed inside the visitor center at Tuzigoot.

Prickly pear

Both the fruits and pads of the prickly pear cactus can be eaten! Today you can buy them at some grocery stores, but the javelina who roam around Tuzigoot National Monument like to eat them right off the plant.
