While we love pets, they are only allowed in specific areas of the Park.

Pets are allowed at Steamtown but are limited to the parking lot and the grassy area outside of the Theater Building. Please pick up after your pet and properly dispose of waste.

Service Animals are permitted in all public buildings, railroad cars and locomotives and are not subject to the park’s pet policies and, when accompanying an individual with a disability, they are allowed wherever visitors are allowed. A service animal means any dog or miniature horse that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability.”

Please do not leave your pet unattended in a vehicle or tethered outside.

For more information, you may visit the National Park Service Service Animals page or you may call the Park at 570-340-5203.
