Death Valley Dog Policy
Death Valley National Park is Somewhat Dog Friendly
Death Valley is the hottest, lowest, and driest place in the United States, with daytime temperatures that have exceeded 130 °F (54 °C). The park protects Badwater Basin and its vast salt flats at the lowest elevation in North America, −282 ft (−86 m). The park also protects canyons, badlands, sand dunes, mountain ranges, historic mines, springs, and more than 1,000 species of plants that grow in this geologic graben.
Death Valley is somewhat dog friendly. While dogs aren't allowed on any trails, they are allowed on a number of roads and in the campgrounds. Please note that dogs can't be left unattended in vehicles. It can also get very hot in Death Valley, so please take care to make sure your dog stays cool enough and has enough water.
Dogs are allowed at the campgrounds as long as they're on 6' leashes. Do not leave pets unattended, and be careful when camping. Coyotes have snatched dogs from outside RVs when they aren't being watched.
