Furry Ones Welcomed

Pets are welcomed in select places throughout Yosemite, but it’s important that owners follow the rules—to make the park safe for everyone, and to protect the wildlife.

  • Pets on leashes 6-feet or shorter are allowed on paved bike paths and roads.
  • Pets must be with their owners at all times.
  • Owners must clean up after their pets.
  • Pets are NOT allowed on hiking trails—except for Meadow Loop near Wawona and Old Big Oak Flat Road between Hodgdon Meadow and Hazel Green Creek.
  • Pets are NOT allowed in hotels/lodges, wilderness, beaches, meadows, shuttle buses, or in public buildings.
  • All campgrounds allow pets, except walk-in campgrounds.
  • The Dog Kennel at the Yosemite Valley Stable is not open during the 2019 season.
