Important Notes to Our Visitors:
To our friends with pets: we need to remind you that pets must be restrained on a leash at all times and MUST NOT be led near or around any horses, as this could cause serious injuries should a horse become excitable!!! Pets are not allowed inside historical buildings or structures. Owners are expected to walk their pets far away from the historical viewing areas and to clean up after them in areas where visitors may be walking. Thank you.
The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association is not allowed by public health regulations to feed any visitors from the cook fires or cooking preparation areas. Only registered volunteers may eat this food. Hot dogs and other snacks will be available for our visitors from Park vendors in front of the Interpretive Center and Museum. Thank you.
