Description

Nestled on the Gulf of Mexico, Grayton Beach State Park is mostly known for its warm breezes, sandy beaches, and puptacular waves. But, did you know that  it also has a freshwater lake just a bone’s throw away from the salty gulf? 

As a general rule, dogs are not allowed on the beaches of Florida State Parks, and Grayton is no exception. But don’t let this keep you from bringing your pooch here for some fun in the sun. Four legged guests are welcome on trails and other areas of the park. If you don’t have much time or your pup wants something short and easy, follow the Barrier Dunes Nature Trail. This trail takes your pup on a journey through the sand dune ecosystem, across a salt marsh, and through pine flatwoods. It’s the pawfect way to check out the park’s wild side.

If your pal is bursting with energy, then the 4.5 mile hiking/biking trail is more their style. Venture through a coastal forest of scrub oak and magnolia trees and around the freshwater Western Lake. Notice how the salty winds have twisted the branches and trunks of the trees. Your pooch will be pawsitively impressed! Keep your eyes peeled for the local critters, Florida Black Bear, deer, grey fox, and other creatures call this place home. Remember this is a multi-use trail, so help your pup yield to cyclists.

Besides its furrific trails, the park also features other recreational activities like fishing, swimming, canoeing, and bicycling. If your canine companion wants to stay an extra night or two, grab a spot in the campground. There are pet friendly sites for both RVs and tents. Day trippers can make use of the picnic facilities. Always have a clean up bag ready to use and don’t forget to have plenty of water on hand.  

Make no mistake; your pooch will simply go mutts over this park!
