Fort walls at Pulaski

The main structure, together with outlying works including demilune, drawbridges, ditches, and dikes, is a fine example of historic military architecture. Leashed pets are welcome to enter the fort and explore the hiking trails within the monument. Leashed dogs are also are allowed to walk along the shoreline; however, they should not enter the water, as there is always a very strong current. Pets are not allowed in public buildings.

    We spent the day here with our dog for his birthday. Even took him to the beach area. Had a great time.

    So much fun

    This place was awesome and so dog friendly. EVERYWHERE. Bring bug spray!!! They do have cannon shootings a few times a day but they are give you ample notice in case your pup isn't a fan of big booms. Very nice and educational tour!

    Great dog beach option near tybee Island

    We were vacationing in tybee Island with our 2 dogs. None of the island beaches allow dogs but a local resident suggested Fort Pulaski. Beach is along the Savannah River. There were only a few other people there the day we were there. The area is posted warning of large currents and there is some shipping traffic so we just let our dogs wade in to cool off but it is great option for the area.

    Great option for pups and pet parents

    So pet friendly. There are a variety of trails, also has plenty of shaded areas with benches to take walk/water breaks--an important amenity for my small Havanese pup in the Savannah heat!

    Very dog friendly

    We brought both our large dogs and they had a great time walking around the fort with us.

    Kids & furkids loved it!

    In addition to welcoming our pup, the restrooms in the fort walls had doggy dishes by the water fountains. Glad we found it on Bring Fido. ????

    This was the highlight of our Savannah trip! My husband, german shepherd, and I loved it! There are hiking trails, fort grounds to walk, the fort itself with all the recreated rooms/exhibits, a gift shop, a cemetery, and more trails! Everything except the visitor center is dog friendly. Your pass is valid for a week. Well worth the $5 fee. It is a great historical sight. Must see the cannon damage on the outside walls.

    Beautiful and historical!

    We took our dog here and walked around the fort. He loved exploring the fort and sniffing the old cannons. Well worth the entrance fee. We were going to hike the trails, but George got too hot. The nice thing is - the entrance fee is good for an entire week (save your receipt!) so we may go back and try the trails, which looked fun.

    Great exercise for everyone

    We went for a walk around the fort and surrounding grounds. It was a perfect opportunity for our Scooter to get exercise and explore the fort. It's an amazing place and well worth the $5 person entrance fee.

    Lighthouse Trail

    Love it!! Shaded, flat, well maintained. One of the best trails I have been on.
