Fort Frederica National Monument

Fort Frederica National Monument is pet-friendly. Once a thriving British town and fort founded in 1736 by General James Edward Oglethorpe, this pet-friendly structure was designed to defend the northern colonies against Spanish attack. Dogs must be leashed, well-behaved and cleaned up after. There are dog waste bag stations at the entrance to the historic area, and at the dinghy dock, plus water fountains for dogs and people on the breezeway porch of the visitor center. Fort Frederica National Monument is open every day of the week from 9am to 5pm. Visit Website

    Worth the visit

    The grounds are expansive, and we found plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the cultural exhibits and the gorgeous live oaks. The ranger and master gardener we spoke to were incredibly friendly and seemed pleased with our questions. the ranger was also great with our dogs, insisting they stop by for a treat before leaving.

    Pretty park with beautiful mossy trees

    The park is decent sized with lots of moss covered trees to walk under for shade. Dogs are allowed most everywhere (not in the buildings). The Ranger even had a milkbone for our pup. They have 2 poop stations if you forget bags. B.A.R.K. Ranger program was on hold due to revamping their program, so that was unfortunate timing for us.

    Just be aware that ticks can be found, we didn't find any on the dog but one on us.
