Fort Morgan Historic Site Bayside Beach
- HeatherJul. 7, 2019Great dog beach
Visited for July 4th weekend with our dog. Got there early at 8am and had the dog beach all to ourselves for about 4 hrs. There is some debris and driftwood but its not terrible. No dog poop on the beach which was nice. There were dozens of crabs so beware if you have a dog that thinks everything is a chew toy. Totally worth the admission fee!

I have been so disappointed in the Gulf Shores area for how unwelcome they’ve been to our doggos. I mean it’s 2019– our pups are our babies. But we found this gem of a place down Ft. Morgan Rd. And we had a blast. It’s a bay-side beach so the water is pretty calm, and there was no one there for the hour we spent there. It was the perfect place to get some energy out. We will definitely return!

This is a fee area. It'll cost you $5 in an honor system drop box to get to about 600 yards of beach where they allow dogs between the pier and the old warf. For this fee, you get the privilege of walking along a debris strewn beach about 30 feet wide with it's fair share of fish carcasses. No bags provided. It does have decent sunsets, though.
We never got there in time to get into the fort, which closes at 5pm, which is in a separate fee area.

The beach is located just past the ferry to Dauphin Island and before the entrance to the fort. Park across the street from the yellow houses and you are there! Watch the drop off, keep your dog leashed but enjoy!

This is a great place for the dogs to rip and run in the sand and waves! This is not a great beach to lay out on as it tends to have lots of debris. Usually not very crowded, and the fort is dog friendly as well!
