If you bring your pet with you, make sure to follow all the rules and guidelines set for your pet’s protection and that of the local wildlife. Your pet must be under your physical control at all times, either inside a crate or on a leash, not tethered to trees, porches, or anchored to the ground.
As with any park or public space, always clean up after your pet and don’t forget to bring potty bags. Pets who are aggressive or bark excessively are not permitted at Laurel Hill State Park. Make sure you also have proof of current rabies vaccine. Pets may never be left unattended, and make sure to pay attention to all posted signs.
