Tallgrass Prairie Dog Policy

Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is Dog Friendly

Tallgrass prairies used to cover 170 million acres of the United States. Today, less than 4% of that total remains. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve protects a piece of the remaining prairie, and offers scenic vistas and a variety of wildlife and wildflowers. The park also allows fishing at ponds and the creek.

Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on most trails all the time, and one conditionally (see below). Dogs are not allowed in buildings.
