    Beach dog doesn't like short leash rule:(

    my dog loves the beach, we have been twice now. I was told we needed to keep him on a leash, but they didn't say the length....so we had him tethered on a 20' lead so he could run and fetch and play in the surf, but a ranger came by and said dogs had to be on a 6' lead:( this is way to short for a dog to really run around and play. I can understand if your dog was bothering people to shorten the leash, but we were a good distance from people so our dog didn't bother anybody. His beach trip turned from running on a 20' lead and playing fetch in the surf awesome day, to just sitting on the beach and not playing much at all not so fun for a dog day:( Other than the short leash rule, the beach was nice.

    Enjoying the coast

    We had a 3 1/2 month old pup with us and durin our time in Wilmington, NC we found a great pet friendly hotei,the Inn at Wilmington. We asked about a dog friendly beach and were told of Fort Fisher. It was a very nice beach and of course our pup drew lots of attention.
    I got to teach her to swim and the people were all l so friendly( great socialization!) The only downfall for us and her was the walk over the asphalt street and parking lot then more hot wooden walkway and across scorching sand for quite a way to the cooler wet sand. And good thing we always bring our own waste bags when we travel with our dogs because we never found any there.

    Love this Beach

    We took our dog Angus, and he had alot of fun. There were lots of others dogs on the beach and all were well behaved. We will definitely be going to this beach again.

    Our Local Beach

    Taking our dogs to many beaches up and down east coast one of our favorites. Make sure to bring water and shade and dog bags. A bit of a walk for these. Dogs are very welcome. Waves and coast ideal for smaller dogs to still get wet. Family beach lots of kids and family atmosphere. OPEN ALL YEAR ANY TIME for dogs.

    Fun for Everyone

    My JRT loves this beach, digging holes, swimming, barking at the waves and seagulls. There's been 5 - 10 dogs every time we have been. Parking is close to the beach and with the Fort near by there are lots of trails to explore. We did run into a few people who didn't seem to know it this beach was dog friendly when obviously weren't but this is still our favorite beach.
