Ferry Beach State Park is dog-friendly. You can bring Fido with you to enjoy this stunning golden sand beach and surrounding area. Along the shore and among the forest, you'll notice a stand of tupelo trees, also known as black gum, from the pet-friendly nature trail that weaves around the shoreline and among the swampy marshes. Visitors are reminded that no pets are allowed on State Park beaches between April 1 and September 30, they should always be on a leash under six feet, and all mess should be cleaned up after them. Ferry Beach State Park is open every day of the week from 9am until sunset.
