Bring your Leashed Pet on the Trail
Pets are welcome at Fort Necessity. All dogs must remain on a leash (no longer than 6 feet) and all pets must be under control at all times. Pet owners are required to clean up after their pets and prevent them from harming park plants and wildlife. Pets are not allowed inside the visitor center. (Service animals provide service for persons with disabilities. They are not considered to be pets and are not regulated as pets. Accordingly, they have been allowed to go into areas where pets are traditionally prohibited.)
If you visit during the summer months, please do not leave your pet in your parked vehicle. Even with the windows rolled down slightly, temperatures inside a locked car can climb to unsafe levels!
