Glen Canyon Dog Policy
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is Somewhat Dog Friendly
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is a very large recreation area in Utah and Arizona which offers recreation on Lake Powell and surrounding areas. There are many water based activities as well as hiking, off-roading, camping, fishing, scenic vistas, and more.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is somewhat dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on many trails, in campgrounds, on boats, and many areas of the park. Dogs are not allowed at archaeological sites, marinas or docks (except when getting directly on or off a boat), along San Juan River from Clay Hills Crossing upstream to the Glen Canyon NRA, Cathedral Wash between the road and the Colorado River, Orange Cliffs, Rainbow Bridge, and Coyote Gulch.
Dogs are allowed on many trails while on a leash no longer than 6'. The National Park Service has a list of main trails, as well as which trails dogs are allowed on/not allowed on.
Dogs are allowed at most campgrounds while on a leash. There is a list of campgrounds at the NPS site.
Note: Policies can change -- please make sure to check official dog/pet policies prior to making plans or booking travel.
