The long sandy beaches stretch out along a beautiful coastline of natural arches and secluded coves at this popular state park. Although dogs are not allowed to hang out on Goat Rock Beach, your leashed pup can join you on Blind Beach off the south parking lot at Goat Rock. Dogs are also welcome at Wright's Beach and the campground at Bodega Dunes. You can find out more information about the park's opening times by contacting Sonoma Coast State Park directly.

    Schoolhouse Beach

    loved that this was more pebbles than sand (but still soft enough to all be barefoot). Dogs on 6ft leashes (pls leash ur dog- some of us choose leash places on purpose!). This is going to be our go to beach in the area!

    Doran Beach

    Doran beach is a great place to bring the dogs and have a picnic and walk on the beach. The cost is $7.00 which is a great deal for a day at the beach

    Great Views But No Dogs

    While the rules vary from site to site, generally dogs are not allowed in the beaches. The rules seemed to have changed just recently as beaches like Campbell Cove that used to allow dogs now do not. As an alternative, Doran Beach (Sonoma County Regional Park) allows leashed pups on the beach.
