South Harbour Village

About 15 minutes from Oak Island, the Dutchman Creek Park in neighboring Southport is a 30-acre green space right on the Intracoastal Waterway. Take your best friend for a leashed walk by the water, or hang out at one of the benches to take in the peaceful views. Tall trees around the park provide ample shade, so you and Fido can still drop by on warmer days. If walking around the Dutchman Creek Park leaves you hungry, proceed to the nearby Dead End Saloon. Located right at the marina, this seafood restaurant and bar has a dog-friendly patio where you can look out onto the water while digging into your plate.

Cambridge Cove

Let Fido enjoy some off-leash time at the Salty Dog Park! Located inside the Bill Smith Park in nearby Southport, this bark park is about a 16-minute drive from Oak Island. The Salty Dog Park is divided into two sections to accommodate canines of different sizes, with 6-foot-high fencing that will keep even the highest jumpers in. The Salty Dog Park offers plenty of room for high-energy pups to do their zoomies, as well as shade trees that provide spots to cool off. Bring your own water as there is no water source, and be prepared for possible bugs since the park is next to a creek.
