For visitors with hearing impairments, a variety of publications may be obtained at park headquarters. Wayside exhibits with illustrations and text about natural and cultural features are located throughout the park.

Blind/Low Vision Accessibility

Headquarters exhibits include tactile models and rock samples for touching purposes. Recorded descriptions of exhibits or waysides are not available at this time.

Service Animals

Service animals are allowed in national parks. For a definition of a service animal, please visit the ADA Regulations on Service Animals. Service animals are permitted at Lake Meredith. Owners are encouraged to identify their working service animal. Identification is not required, but helps prevent unwarranted "dog on trail" complaints from other visitors. There are no plastic bags provided at trailheads for waste products. Please bring plastic bags for waste products. Leave No Trace.

A Special Note about Dogs during Hunting Season…

In accordance with 36 C.F.R. 2.15, the use of dogs to aid in hunting activities is permitted. "In park areas where hunting is allowed, dogs may be used in support of these activities in accordance with applicable Federal and State laws and in accordance with conditions which may be established by the superintendent."

Caution! The Texas High Plains ecosystem can be deadly for pets. Car temperatures rise quickly in the sun, even on cool days. Pets can easily die of heat exhaustion. An unattended car can turn into a dangerous place for pets because it can heat up quickly, even in mild weather. Since pets can't regulate body temperature well, keep a good watch on them if temperatures rise above 68 degrees.

The national parks welcome your service animals and pets. Learn more about pets in national parks here: https://www.nps.gov/subjects/pets/index.htm
