Fairport Harbor Dog Beach

***Due to recent shoreline erosion, access to the lake for dogs is closed for the safety of both pets and their owners.*** Fairport Harbor Dog Beach is pet-friendly. A dog swim area is located at the east end of the beach between the two signs clearly marked “Dog Swim Area.” This is the only place dogs are allowed on the sand. Dogs not in the swim area must remain on the sidewalks, parking lots or grassy areas. You must leash your dog when it is out of the water and you must carry the leash with you at all times. Owners are responsible for cleaning up pet waste. Make sure you keep an eye on the weather and any warnings, as the beach is not always accessible. Visit Website

Or call (440) 639-9972 for more information.

    No longer a swimmable dog beach

    The website for Fairport Harbor Park states "Dogs must be on a leash and are allowed only on the paved parking lot or in the designated dog area east of the concession stand. Due to recent shoreline erosion, access to the lake for dogs is closed for the safety of both pets and their owners."

    Great location...for a broken leg

    Its not a beach, its a rocky(boulders) that extends away from a sidewalk. There is NO beach for dogs and its a very small area. Bring your hiking sticks because between the waves coming in and the slippery rocks....well lets just say accidents will happens if not to you then your dog....😖 NEVER GOING AGAIN. Oh, almost forgot, you have to pay to get in😖😖😖 (Had to give it a one because it wouldn't take zero)

    Rock beach maybe

    Ha! Dog beach is that what they call it? For the price each car pays to get in you could clean it up.. it’s nice up until you get to the dog area. Sad!

    Tiny and Rocky

    The dog beach is very small and the "beach" is pebbles, not sand. You have to pay for parking. Finally, the is a nuclear power plant a few miles away.

    Smallest dog beach ever

    The dog beach swimming area is literally 20 yards long by 5 yards of sand deep. Not worth it at all to come here with your dog. Rocks and concrete everywhere plus broken glass around the walkway.

    Too rocky

    I have been here a couple of times. I honestly cannot remember there being so many rocks along the edge of the beach. It almost looks like they were dumped there. It is more like pieces of concrete as opposed to Rocks.
    We took our dog there to help him strengthen his leg from ACL surgery, and that was the only disappointment.
    Everyone there was extremely friendly and only one dog was a little crazy, but his owner had him on his leash the entire time.
    My only suggestion is, they should get rid of the broken concrete barrier between the shore and the water. It's dangerous for humans and pets.

    Just ok

    The dog beach used to be bigger there isn't much room now and what beach they have the bottom of the lake is covered in rocks the dogs can't get stable footing.

    I have been a dog owner for awhile now, and i just discovered the doggy beach! It was a awesome day! Everyone was very friendly! Great shallow area for my learning pup and many others playing fetch. Boats anchored and dogs swimming and playing all over! It was a dogs dream come true and so glad i could ha e a day out with friends, cookout, tan, hangout

    A day at the Beach!

    Spend the day in the waves, relax in the shade and then walk over to Sunset Harbor for relaxed dining on the pier. All with your dog in tow.
