The National Park Service is committed to making all practicable efforts to ensure NPS facilities, programs, services, and information accessible and usable by all of our visitors.
For Mobility Impairments:
For the Hearing Impaired
Washita's film Destiny at Dawn is equipped with closed captioning and two (2) Listen Display Receivers--a halo hearing aid or an ear speaker.
For the Visually Impaired
The visitor center and its restrooms are accessible. A cell-phone audio guide is available for the self-guided trail.
Service animals are allowed in National Park. For a description of a service animal, visit www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm
Service animals are permitted both in the Cultural Heritage Center and on the trail. Owners are encouraged, but not required, to identify their working service animal, such as with a vest. This helps prevent unwarranted "dog on trail" complaints from other visitors. There are no plastic bags provided at trailheads for waste products, so please bring your own.
