Description
Barracks Beach is located on beautiful Presque Isle, which is Pennsylvania's only seashore. One of the more popular beaches in the area, Barracks Beach is part of an 11-mile stretch of white sand in Presque Isle State Park. While dogs are allowed on-leash, please pay attention to any signs stating otherwise. In some areas of the park, dogs are not allowed. If your pup does decide to go for a swim, they must be on a six-foot leash. Aggressive behavior is not tolerated, so if your dog growls, howls, or barks excessively at other beachgoers, you may be asked to leave. 

Presque Isle State Park is a small inlet on Lake Erie, just outside of Erie, Pennsylvania. The beaches are known for their soft, white sand and flat land, offering stunning views of the bay and breathtaking sunsets. 

If you decide to bring Fido along, there are 15 trails within the park that allow leashed dogs, including the North Pier Trail, Sidewalk Trail, and Dead Pond Trail. Dogs are also welcome at the park's designated picnic areas. The beach and park are home to deer ticks, which can cause Lyme disease, so be sure and check your dog after spending an afternoon at the beach. Presque Isle is also home to many wild animals, so dog owners should take extra precaution and never let Fido out of their sight. 

There is limited parking at Barracks Beach, and visitors are asked to refrain from parking at Stull Interpretive Center. Barracks Beach is a beautiful, curving stretch around Lake Erie that is perfect for families, including your four-legged friend! One last note - there is not a lot of shade, so be prepared with your sunshade or get there early on the weekends to secure one of a few picnic areas!
