You have to take the particular beach trail down to the beach from campsite 10. If you choose this trail to the beach, do not expect to find super-soft-and-sandy beaches, as this beach is comprised of large and small rocks.
There is some room to walk in small areas of the beach, but this beach is best for your pooch to play around and splash in the water. If you take the trails that are located in the hiker/biker areas, these trails will lead you to sandier beaches that are better for running and walking on with your pup. Just note these trails are not officially marked, so proceed with caution.
You will find some outhouses for a bathroom stop if you need to go, but there are no shower stations available by the beaches. There are no poop bag stations or garbage cans available by the beaches either, so you will have to bring your own bags and walk to a trashcan to throw the bags away. Always be sure to pick up after your dog so you can keep this pretty park, beach, and popular hiking area clean and sanitary.
Overall, Kirk Creek is an excellent option if you are looking for some untraditional styled beaches and like a challenge to hike to a hidden away spot. Make sure your dog is comfortable and able to walk on some rough and steep terrain to get to the beach and ocean.
