Places to Play
St. George Island Public Beach
If you’re planning to spend the day basking in the sun and sand, you’re in luck! St. George Island offers 22 miles of dog-friendly shoreline. Your only job is to abide by the local Franklin County Ordinance and keep your dog on a leash. Please check dog rules in SGI before venturing out!
Some beach areas restrict dogs, like the East End of the island. The East End of the beach is used only for fishing with a special permit. Other nearby dog-friendly beaches to check out include Carrabelle Beach, Alligator Point, Dog Island, and St. Vincent Island!
St. George Island State Park
Feel free to roam St. George Island State Park with your pup! Dogs are allowed at campground sites, on nature trails, and all paved surfaces throughout the park, as long as they’re well-behaved and kept on a six-foot leash. Make sure to review park guidelines before heading out! The park beach is off-limits for dogs.
The Place to Pamper
After a romp on the beach at St. George Island, your furry best bud might be looking a little windswept. The Pet Stop in Eastpoint is the perfect solution. This full-service pet salon will leave your pooch looking fresh and feeling fine!
The Place for Treats
Don’t worry; we didn’t forget about stopping to get Fido a treat after he’s been such a good boy! Oysterbones in Apalachicola is the spot to stop for a gourmet doggy treat. These treats are packed with calcium! The secret ingredient – you guessed it – crushed oyster shell! Who knew that the beach has so much to offer your four-legged friend?
Not only does Oysterbones know how to treat dogs in the area, but they know how to cool them down, too! After your pup works up a pant at the toy testing area, they can cool down in one of the pools! They also offer a secure space for your four-legged to run and play!
