Saguaro Dog Policy
Saguaro National Park is Somewhat Dog Friendly
Split into the separate Rincon Mountain and Tucson Mountain districts, this park is evidence that the dry Sonoran Desert is still home to a great variety of life spanning six biotic communities. Beyond the namesake giant saguaro cacti, there are barrel cacti, chollas, and prickly pears, as well as lesser long-nosed bats, spotted owls, and javelinas.
Saguaro National Park is a somewhat dog friendly national park. Dogs are not allowed on most trails, but they are allowed on several paved trails. There are no front-country campgrounds for dogs, but they are allowed along roadways and most picnic areas. Dogs must not be left unattended in vehicles at Saguaro National Park.
