I'm surprised that this beautiful national park has been hidden from our tourism itinerary. All my friends residing in WA have never been there and when I took them there, they got so, so excited and regret that they have not discovered this place sooner....More

I am not sure. I think you can as long as it is on a leash. You might want to check with the National Parks website first.
