Traveling with a pet?
There are only a few options of things to do with your pet while visiting Jewel Cave National Monument. Furthermore, the main parking lot near the visitor center offers very little shade during the summer months; when daytime temperatures reach above 65 degrees, it is not safe to leave your pet in your vehicle. Pets, more than humans, are susceptible to overheating; cracked windows provide little relief. Although most pets are social and friendly, animals may not be left tied to vehicles, trees, or other objects.
Where are pets not permitted?
To learn more about bringing a service animal to the monument, visit the Service Animals page for more detailed information. If you are visiting multiple parks, you may also be interested in reviewing service animal information within the National Park Service.
