Dogs are permitted on leash in most areas of the park. They are not permitted in buildings, on tours, in concession areas, in the Wilderness Preserve south of S.R. 72, or in primitive or youth camping areas. We also ask that they not be taken up the canopy walkway and and towers.
Do be aware that alligators exist in most wet areas of the park such as the river, lake, ditches, culverts, and wetlands. In the past, dogs that have been allowed to go to such areas to drink have been taken by alligators.
Dogs are permitted in Florida State Park Campgrounds. You will find the pet policy info at the following web site: Florida State Parks Pet Policy
