Pets are welcome in Mesa Verde National Park, but to protect your pets, wildlife, and other visitors, please follow these regulations:
Service animals are allowed anywhere that you are allowed to go in Mesa Verde. For more information, visit the service animals page.
Keep Your Pets Safe
Keep your pets well hydrated and cool. Water is available at the restrooms in the Park Headquarters area and at the Visitor & Research Center, and seasonally at the Morefield Campground, Wetherill Mesa, and Cliff Palace parking lot.
Sometimes your pets are happier, and safer, staying at home.
A kennel is available in the Morefield Campground. See the kennel section of Aramark's Morefield Campground webpage, or call the kennel at 970-565-2133, for current information on kennel hours and pricing.
