great spot and friendly people

We stayed near Navy cove. At the end toward the fort and ferry. The beach access was very easy and we walked to reach the beach. We played ball on the beach with the leash close by. Everyone was friendly with our dog. The beach was clean and the water was clear.

Reading about this beach here and on other sights makes it seem as if there is dog friendly access at the end of Mobile St. THERE IS NOT. If you want a good spot and you aren't staying in Fort Morgan, i would drive into the town and turn down (OUR ST.) < that is the name. There isn't a parking lot, but there is beach access and space to park along the sandy streets (traffic is low, just don't get stuck in the sand). There probably many other public streets you could turn down as well. It's a nice uncrowded place to bring some chairs and spend the day with your pet. (no facilities) Enjoy!

I have a full review here -- http://pawprintsandpaintbrushes.blogspot.com/2013/03/fort-morgan-beach.html Basically, the only reason I didn't give it five stars is because there are some dead things on the beach, like fish bones and such. But honestly, its a great beach to take your dog too. The water was clean, it was secluded, to see more pictures and descriptions check out my blog post.

Our original destination was the fort. Beach was a side trip just to get her some exercise. No dead fish but the largest jellyfish I ever seen. The reason I give this 3 bones is due to humans not taking care. This is more a fishing relaxing beach and not for swimming. Highly recommend the fort tour

Contrary to popular belief, most of the beaches out Fort Morgan Hwy are PRIVATE and not public - so as you trespass on private property you and your dog may not be welcome!
You Call This a Beach
Gayle in Sioux Falls
A very I attractive beach. If I wouldn't swim there, and I wouldn't, my beloved dog isn't either. Murky looking water. Views of oil rigs. Facing Mobile Bay not the Gulf. And was charged $10 for the pleasure of being here.
The nastiest beach ever
Szilvia in New Orleans, LA
The reason I give 1 bone to Fort Morgan Beach is because no bone is not an option. This beach was a huge disappointment. I do not recommend it to anyone who love their dog. This beach was covered with countless pretty big sized dead fishes. I don't know what caused their death but the water and the sand both looked polluted. The whole place smelled. It was just disgusting. Do not take your dog there! The park itself is overpriced and has short hours anyway, closing at 5 PM.
Residents in Fort Morgan
Dog owners do not respect the beach. Reasonable rules for dog and pet visits are not followed . They leave their dog droppings and polute the beach. Ask some one to restrain their dog is not going to happen. The county sheriff's office should enforce reasonable rules.
