Description
Fire Island National Seashore is an area that is about 26 miles in length and covers a total area of about 19,500 acres of land on Fire Island, New York. Areas closest to the national seashore include Patchogue, New York. If you want to access this national seashore, you need to find and access Long Island’s south shore between the Moriches Inlet on the east to Democrat Point on the west. 

The protected area forms the barrier between Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the easy ways to access the protected area include using public transportation from New York City to Fire Island Portals or by using a Passenger Ferry. If you plan on driving there, you can drive from either end of the Fire Island National Seashore, but you cannot drive across from one end to the other.

When you get to the Fire Island National Seashore, you will find several attractive features including Otis Pike Fire Island Wilderness which is the only federal wilderness in New York. You can also find Sunken Forest, a 300-year-old holly forest. Other attractive features include a variety of flora and fauna, cultural, and historical attractions like the William Floyd Estate and the Fire Island Lighthouse, as well as other ecological observations and recreational opportunities.

Some of the popular recreational opportunities include hiking, swimming, canoeing, interpretive programs, boating, snorkeling, fishing, camping, and wildlife viewing. You can, of course, bring your dog along for the fun and relaxation, but you will need to observe basic rules to avoid any inconvenience to you or to other park visitors. Some of the basic rules to be aware of are as follows.

First, you need to be aware of the areas of the park where dogs and other pets are prohibited and the areas where they are permitted. Basically, as long as you keep your dog leashed, you can access most areas on Fire Island, but it is still important to be sure by confirming with the park's management. The leash that you use on your pooch must not be more than six feet in length.
