Mueller State Park welcomes leashed pets in campgrounds, picnicking areas, 4 of the 5 sledding areas and along the park’s roads, but not on the hiking trails or in the backcountry. By keeping pets off of the trails, we increase the chances of visitors seeing the various species of wildlife in the park and are better able to maintain this pristine Watchable Wildlife Area. Download Pets at Mueller State Park to learn more. Pets must be on a leash at all times unless they are in a tent, RV or personal vehicle. We discourage leaving your pets in an unattended vehicle as intense sunshine can quickly heat up the inside of vehicles to as much as 20 degrees hotter than the outside temperature. Please plan and make appropriate arrangements for your pet during your stay with us.
Upcoming Roadwork:Please excuse us this spring as we complete some much-needed roadwork. Mueller State Park roads will be re-paved starting in the spring and lasting until early July. Please expect delays & road closures.
