Yosemite National Park wildlife will go after your pet. So if you come with a dog or other beloved animal, follow the park rules and keep them on a leash. Never leave your pet unattended.
Yosemite National Park facilities do include a kennel. There is an open air kennel at the horse stables in Yosemite
Valley. It is only open during the summer months and dogs must weigh at
least 10 pounds to be boarded here.
The open air kennel is the perfect place to leave your pet if you want to go on any Yosemite hikes.
Pets are not allowed to hike with you on Yosemite hiking trails. In the summer months pets are allowed to stay with you if you are staying at the following campgrounds: Upper Pines, Wawona, Bridalveil Creek, Hodgdon Meadow, Crane Flat, White Wold, Yosemite Creek and up in Tuolumne Meadows. In the winter months your pet is only allowed in these campgrounds: Upper Pines, Wawona and Hodgdon Meadow.
All pets must be on a leash, no longer than 6 feet, at all times while they are in Yosemite National Park. You may take your pet for a walk on any of the bike trails or paved roads in Yosemite. Pets are not allowed in any of the buildings.
You absolutely may not leave your pet alone in the campground or in your vehicle. Rangers regularly check campgrounds and parked vehicles for pets and food. Why? Because pets and their food attract bears! If you violate either rule, there s a steep fine.
We have taken our little dog, Roxy, to Yosemite with us several times. She loves coming and we love having her with us. We followed the park rules and have never had a problem. The last thing we want is for her to be a meal for any of the Yosemite National Park wildlife :)
