Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area - Pets

dog at Red Spring by Jeanne TinsmanPets are welcome at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. 

Pets are permitted on trails and should be leashed to minimize conflicts with other people, other pets and native wildlife. 

Pet owners are required to clean up pet waste (baggies for waste disposal are available in the campground and at the scenic drive entrance station.)

In the campground, pets must be leashed at all times and may not be left unattended. 

Pets must be leashed at other developed facilities such as the visitor center, Willow Springs picnic area and Red Rock overlook on State Route 159.

Pet owners are reminded that summertime can reach to temperatures above 110 °F and leaving pets in a vehicle can endanger their lives.
