This wilderness claims to offer a barrier island experience like no other. On it, you can find backcountry camping, hiking, fishing, and of course, doggo exploration trails. This wilderness is vast, trust us. It extends over the span of about 1,380 acres and it's close to seven miles long. This seven-mile trail wilderness allows the perfect opportunity for your pup to enjoy the waves, sand, and surf of the NY coastline.
There are, however, a few stipulations. Due to the hustle and bustle of the on-season, you and your dog are only permitted to explore this area from Labor Day through March 15th. After that, you and your doggo will have to find adventure at one of New York state's other pup-friendly beaches.
Please make sure that you leash your dog on this beach and of course, bring plenty of supplies to pick up after your pooch. We hope you and your doggo enjoy this wilderness area, but ask that you make sure you're only leaving pawprints behind! It's a protected area, and the last thing the rangers want to see is a forgotten doggo poop bag!
If you plan on going for a big hike on the trails, be sure to bring some water and a bowl so your dog can have a drink on the way. (It's not a bad idea to bring some for yourself, as well.) With a bit of preparation, you and your pooch can have a great time at this beach.
