Amazing Dog Beach

You think if you live in Florida that you could bring your dog to the beach with you. This is one of the few beaches that dedicate a large portion of the beach to dogs. Lots of room. Little tide pools. It cost 4.00 for the day. I felt like it was very reasonable. I will drive from Citrus county (2 hrs) to come here and enjoy my beach time with dog. Stay on path to get to beach because they have those sand-spurs. The biggest thing I would like to mention is the dog owners that have no respect and don't pick up their dogs poop. Come on people. You're the reason that dogs are not wanted at beaches. Please please please don't ruin it for us.

This is a lovely, very, very, secluded beach...it is ridiculous that you can't allow your dog off leash to swim and frolic with the other dogs. It seems cruel and unnatural ... Ridiculous!

This park is great, pretty beach, nice friendly dogs and owners, its really a great place BUT the mosquitos are too much, I was covered within 100 ft of the long walk to the beach. I stayed in the water most of the time there to avoid being bitten. Everything else was great!!

Is it worth it?

In general, when I pay to enter somewhere I tend to expect "better" than I can get for somewhere free. If you tend to favor this sort of thinking, then you too will be disappointed. Why? Well, you have to keep your dog on a six foot leash at all times (even in the ocean). Don't get me wrong, the beach is great...it's even clean. As an added bonus there are plenty of mosquitos along the winding path on the way to the beach. There are water stations at the start of the path, but no water stations on the beach itself. I would expect some bowls, maybe a portable water station, or something, but there was nothing. In short, bring your own water, deet, and keep you dog on a leash at all times; pay $8 and they provide access and poo bags. No thanks. Take the trip down to Paw Playground at Ft. De Soto Park if you want your dog to play on a beach.
