Pups at the Point

Author John Grogan may have the best quote about dogs that we’ve ever heard:

“It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”

John Groban, author of Marley & Me

Here at Point Cabrillo Light Station, we LOVE our furry friends! Our Light Station trails and grounds are dog-friendly, as long as you keep those friends on their leashes! As a California State Historic Park, we are dedicated to making sure that you and your friends of all shapes and sizes are having a wonderful trip out to the lighthouse.

Your dogs (or adventure cats!) are also welcome inside our museums and gift shops, as long as they are well-behaved and kept on short leashes.

Point Cabrillo Lighthouse is active on Instagram (follow us at @PointCabrillo!), and one of our favorite things to see is your photos of the dogs you bring to the lighthouse trails and open spaces. We started compiling your photos under the hashtag #PupsAtThePoint, and we just can’t get enough!! We’ve added some of our favorites below, and if you tag us on Instagram you just might see your own pup get added to the list!
