Pets are welcome in a few areas of the park. They are allowed on paved paths and parking areas, but not in the visitor center, on trails, or running loose.
Consider leaving your pet at home during a park visit. Summer temperatures are too high for leaving your pet unattended in the car.
For the protection of your pet and park wildlife, pets must be kept on a leash (6 foot maximum length) or under physical control at all times. Pet waste must be disposed of properly, please don't simply abandon it where your pet deposits it.
Fossils are delicate and park wildlife is sensitive to disturbances and smells, please help us care for Hagerman Fossil Beds by keeping your pet safe and not out on trails or grounds.
