Colonial Dog Policy
Colonial National Historic Park is Dog Friendly
Colonial National Historic Park preserves the history of the first permanent English settlement in North America, at Jamestown. Also part of the park is the Yorktown Battlefield, where in 1781, General George Washington's forces defeated General Cornwallis's British Army. Colonial National Historic Park has many different things to do. For those interested in history, there are exhibits, tours, and historical areas to view. For those interested in wildlife, there are many viewing opportunities for deer, raccon, fox, oppossum, mink, bald eagle, wild turkey, and more. For those interested in exercise, there are many roads and trails to bike and hike.
Colonial National Historic Park is pretty dog friendly. Dogs are allowed at most outdoor areas and on trails. Dogs are not allowed inside buildings such as the visitor center, and they're not allowed inside the brick wall of the National Cemetary. Dogs can't be left unattended in vehicles here.
