Dogs Policies at AutoCamp

We love hosting your pups here at AutoCamp! What better way to explore the outdoors than with your furry friend by your side. In an effort to get people outside responsibly, we have outlined some local pet policies as well as AutoCamp’s dog policy. Remember to use #DogsOfAutoCamp when you share your pups with us on social media.

AutoCamp Dog Policy 

Well-behaved owners may accompany their dogs for an additional fee of $75.00 per stay, 2 dogs maximum with a 50lb maximum weight each. We kindly ask guests who bring their dog to read our Dog Policy below before checking into AutoCamp. Dog accommodations may not be booked online. Luxury Tents are not dog-friendly. Dogs are not allowed on property without prior approval.

Dogs MUST be kept on a maximum, 6-foot leash under owner supervision and may not be left unattended at any time. Guests are responsible to “clean up” after their dog. All dog waste must be properly disposed of in a dog receptacle. Noisy, vicious or unruly dogs are not allowed. AutoCamp is not responsible for, and will hold dog owners accountable for any injury or damage caused by your dog.

Yosemite National Park Dog Policy 

Where pets are allowed:

  • In developed areas
  • On fully paved roads, sidewalks, and bicycle paths (except when signed as not allowing pets)
  • In all campgrounds except walk-in campgrounds (e.g., Camp 4) and in group campsites

Where pets are not allowed:

  • On trails, including the trail to Vernal Fall (however, pets are allowed on the Wawona Meadow Loop)
  • On unplowed roads covered in snow
  • In undeveloped and wilderness areas
  • In public buildings
  • On shuttle buses
  • In lodging areas
  • In all walk-in and group campgrounds/campsites, including Camp 4
  • In any other areas, as signed

Important notes:

  • Pets must be restrained on a leash not more than six feet long or otherwise physically restrained
  • Leashed pets may not be left unattended
  • For the courtesy of other visitors, human companions are responsible for cleaning up and depositing pet feces in trash receptacles
  • Remember that pet food is also bear food: store pet food as if it were human food.

Armstrong Woods Dog Policy 

Dogs must be controlled on a leash at ALL times during your visit to your parks.  Dogs on leash are only allowed on the main, paved road, in one of the developed picnic areas or within your registered campsite at Bullfrog Pond Campground.  Dogs are NOT allowed on any dirt trail or dirt road. If camping, your pet will need to stay in your tent or in your vehicle overnight.

Santa Barbara Dog POlicies

Dogs of all sizes are allowed in downtown Santa Barbara on-leash. There are plenty of open-air patios and dining options that make it a great place to grab a bite while your pup soaks up some sun. Follow that with a stroll in Chase Palm Park and Shoreline Park (leash required). Or take a nice long walk along Cabrillo Boulevard before darting into the Funk Zone for a glass of wine at a local tasting room, many of which welcome your furry friends.

Need some time off the leash? Visit Arroyo Burro Beach — also called Hendry’s Beach — the only beach in Santa Barbara that allows dogs off-leash in select locations.
