Many visitors enjoy the company of their pets while visiting the beautiful scenery and historic landscapes. To preserve these historic places and provide a safe and clean environment for all visitors, please follow the following guidelines when bringing pets into the park.

Plan your day
Before you visit, determine what activities you plan to enjoy before bring your pet. Pets are not permitted in park buildings. (Exception: Service animals as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act are permitted in buildings while functioning in their work capacity.)

Adequate water, shade, and supervision are important considerations for your pet, especially in the hot summer months. Pets may not be left unattended or tied up while owners explore the park.

Leash your pet
Pets must be kept on a six-foot leash and under physical control at all times while visiting any area of the park. This prevents encounters between pets and wildlife, protects pets from hazards, and prevents unwanted interaction between pets and other visitors. Retractable leashes should be kept at a maximum length of six feet.

Dispose of pet waste
All pet waste must be collected by the pet owner and disposed of in a park trash can.
