Everglades Dog Policy
Everglades National Park is Somewhat Dog Friendly
The Everglades are the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. This mangrove and tropical rainforest ecosystem and marine estuary is home to 36 protected species, including the Florida panther, American crocodile, and West Indian manatee. Some areas have been drained and developed; restoration projects aim to restore the ecology.
Everglades National Park is somewhat dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on paved roads, but not on any trails or unpaved roads. They are allowed on private boats, however. Please be aware that there are many alligators in Everglades National Park, and be careful with any dogs near water.
Dogs are allowed in front-country campgrounds, but must be kept on a 6' leash.
