Bring your leashed pet (like park neighbor Bailey above) with you to enjoy the Obed Wild and Scenic River.

Pets are allowed within Obed Wild and Scenic River; however, in order to protect both pet and the wildlife, all pets must be kept on a leash (no longer than 6 feet) at all times. Be sure to clean up after your pet in developed areas. Do not leave animals unattended in campers or vehicles.

If you plan to go out on the river with your pet, make sure that you and your pet both have personal flotation devices.

During hunting season, a dog that is with a licensed hunter and is actively following game does not have to be leashed. However, when entering a designated safety zone, hunting dogs must be restrained on a leash, crated, or caged.

Before coming to the park make sure your pet is up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. Pets should have identification and rabies tags on their collars.
