There are more than 112 miles of paved roads in the park and over 150 miles of unpaved roads. Dogs are allowed wherever your car can go; they are not allowed on trails, on the river, off the roads, or where otherwise noted. Pets are also allowed at backcountry roadside campsites. Dogs must be on no more than a 6 foot leash and be cleaned up after all times. Dogs may not be left unattended outside at any time or in a vehicle if it could possibly create a danger to the animal. Pet owners must take extra precaution due to natural predators and extreme heat conditions. Camping is varied and a permit for backcountry camping is required at least 24 hours in advance. Other camp areas may have all or some of the following: picnic tables, pit or flush toilets, showers, laundry, camp store, concessionaires, or a dump station.
