dog under blanket
Robert Limbert's dog Teddy was the first and only dog to walk the Great Rift. Unfortunately the lava shredded his paws, as well as the feet of another expedition member, and the group was forced to rest for a few days in order to heal up.

Pets are welcome in the campground and in parking lots and paved roads, but not in the visitor center or on trails. For the protection of your pet and park wildlife, pets must be kept on a leash at all times. Pets may impact park wildlife and the rough lava may cause damage to your animal's paws.

There is a pet area on the restroom-side of the visitor center. Please pick up after your pet.

Properly identified service animals are permitted in all of the areas identified above.
