Fido is permitted to join his family at Folly County Beach State Park, but must remain on a leash at all times. Additionally, from May 1st through September 30th, dogs are restricted from all beach sections between the hours of 10 AM to 6 PM, during "high tourist season."
Folly Beach County Park is a private recreational space and beach property. To enter the grounds, families must pay a parking fee which varies in cost according to the season. Typically, the park entry fee is $5 in the offseason with an additional $5 required for parking, bringing the total cost to $10. This rises to as high as $15 during peak busy times of the year with $5 being charged for parking and $10 for admittance to the park. This lovely park is equipped with many amenities for families to enjoy, including a concession stand selling snacks and drinks, as well as an on-premise store which offers convenience items and souvenirs for sale.
Also housed on the grounds are outdoor showers and port-a-potties for public use. It is important to note that the use of shampoo and soap in the showers is strictly forbidden. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rent on the premises, in season. Among the most popular outdoor activities at Folly Beach County Park are the following: bird watching, fishing, biking, hiking, swimming, and water sports. The property is also home to what is known as Skimmer Flats, an area heavily populated with pelicans. At this time, there is not a designated dog play area installed on the grounds.
There are no amenities for dog use provided at Folly Beach County Park. With this in mind, owners should bring drinking water and clean up bags with them to ensure they have access to all of the things they may need. All pet waste removal services must be provided by each owner as is mandated by South Carolina state law. In addition to this, it is recommended that all dogs be current on vaccinations and bear an up to date city dog license tag on their collars. If you're looking for a beautiful place to take Fido and the family for the day, Folly Beach County Park may be just what the doctor ordered!
