Activities with pets are very limited in the park. You must have your pet on a leash any time it is out of the car.

You may have your pet with you:
  • at Willow Flat and Squaw Flat campgrounds
  • on paved scenic drives and parking lots
  • on the Potash/Shafer Canyon road between Moab and Island in the Sky
You may not have your pet with you:
  • at overlooks
  • on any hiking trails
  • anywhere in the backcountry
  • on the rivers
  • on any backcountry roads, even if it stays in your vehicle

The desert can be deadly for pets. Car temperatures rise quickly in the sun, even on cool days. Your pet can easily die of heat exhaustion. If you are leaving a pet in a car, crack the windows as much as possible and leave water to drink. We recommend you not leave pets in the car at all when temperatures are above 68 degrees, even with the windows cracked.
