Canyonlands Dog Policy
Canyonlands National Park is Not Dog Friendly
Canyonlands contains a vast collection of canyons to explore, as well as numerous buttes. The canyons were carved by the Colorado River and tributaries. The park is mostly a desert landscape, and offers many opportunities for hiking and adventure sports. There are also a number of Pueblo artifacts here.
Canyonlands National Park is unfortunately not very dog friendly, depending on what you're looking to do there. While dogs are allowed at front-country campgrounds, and along front-country roads, they're not allowed on any trails, in the backcountry, or in buildings. Dogs are also not even allowed at overlooks.
