Pets are allowed in the park, but must be under physical control at all times. Documented Service animals are an exception to most pet restrictions and are allowed on trails and in public buildings. Service animals must be kept under physical restraint at all times.

* Pets are not allowed in any government buildings, caves, or on most park trails.

* Pets are not allowed within designated wilderness areas with the exception of gravel bars along the river corridor.

* Leashed pets are permitted in the campgrounds and on gravel bars up to 100' from the water's edge.

* Pets may not be left unattended. Unfamiliar sights, sounds, and smells can disturb even the calmest, friendliest, and best-trained dog, causing them to behave unpredictably or bark excessively.

* Pet excrement must be collected by pet owners, and disposed of in trash receptacles.


All park trails are closed to pets with the exception of Mill Creek Trail (trailhead at the Pruitt river access) and all three Buffalo Point Campground trails (Forest, Overlook, and Campground).
