Keeping Your Pet Safe and Happy

Pets are welcome at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park! To protect other visitors, wildlife, and your pets themselves, please remember these regulations:

1) Pets are allowed on trails, and in the parade grounds of the fort. They are prohibited inside all public buildings including the fort replica rooms and the Visitor Center (carpeted areas beyond the restroom foyer) with the exception of service dogs and dogs who are working as volunteers to the NPS.

2) Pets must be leashed at all times with a leash no more than 6 feet (1.8 meters) in length.

3) Do not leave a pet unattended or tied to an object. Consider the weather before leaving your dog in the car.

4) Pet waste must be disposed of by placing the waste in a plastic bag and depositing it in a trash receptacle

Dogs are not permitted at the Middle Village Station Camp unit of the park out of respect for the Native American cultural significance of the site.
