    Great Beach!

    This is an excellent beach to bring your pet. Everyone I encountered was extremely friendly and there were lots of dogs. I will mention that there is a large dune that you have to get up and over. Something to think about if you bring a lot of items with you. Overall fantastic. I would definitely come here again.

    friendly and clean

    This was our first time to take our Shitzu away and to a beach. So we were afraid that a dog beach won’t be as clean. But we found the beach to be better than the regular beach. It wasn’t crowded, mostly families with dogs and everyone was nice and friendly. We will defiantly come again. After you park, use the left side entrance as it is where the families with pets start.

    great beach for dogs and families

    My husband and I brought our 7 month old puppy, Mowgli to Ocean City for the Memorial Day weekend.. we were initially very disappointed that we weren’t allowed to bring Dogs to most beaches / boardwalks due to the time of the year. To our surprise we found this beautiful beach full of very friendly families and amazing dogs!! This was Mowglis first time on the beach and boy he had a great time!! Thank you to BringFido and the people who left reviews so we could find this gem!

    Very nice beach

    This is a great beach. There is a $10 admission fee for the park, which I think helps keep the crowds down. Lots of friendly dog owners and it's fun to watch the surf-fishers. My only complaints is the climb over the dune from the parking lot to the beach. It's challenging if it's just you and your dog, but if you are in a group with others to help carry all your beach gear, it wouldn't be so bad.

    Happy at the beach

    My day at the dog beach was wonderful. The beach was clean and the people respectful. The other dag owners were friendly and everyone seemed to follow the dog rules. Overall, everyone appeared happier with their dogs with them. My dog loved it.

    Dog Friendly Beach

    We had a wonderful time bringing our 4-month old Beagle puppy to the state park beach. The entirety of the beach is open to dogs only in the off-season, but there is a big section of beach that is open to dogs at the north end of the park year round. There is access to parking and the bath house for the humans. We met lots of friendly dogs and the owners were all very responsible and friendly as well. It will be a regular vacation spot for us from now on!
