Dog Friendly!


Dogs are welcome at all Monterey County Parks.  Dogs provide great company while barbequing, playing sports, or hiking. We offer short and longer trails that will be perfect for your dog’s individual needs.  Dogs must be on a leash and supervised at all times. Please be courteous and pick-up after your pets, as it helps keep the parks beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

Dogs are allowed to camp with their owners. If you are camping in any of our parks, proof of Rabies shot verification will be required per County Code. A fee of $2 is required per night per dog, with a maximum of two dogs allowed per site.

Special event promoters enforce different dog policies. It is important to be aware of these individual policies before attending each event.  Please follow the links on the special events pages for more information.
