Fire Island National Seashore

Fire Island, NY
Get Directions

On-leash dogs are allowed on Fire Island National Seashore from Labor Day until March 15th when endangered ground nesting birds are not present. From March 15th and through the summer, dogs are not allowed on ocean beaches, but they are allowed on bayside beaches, on boardwalks, in the Watch Hill campgrounds and in several marinas. The easiest way to get access to the National Seashore during the off-season is to park at the eastern end of Field 5 at Robert Moses State Park, walk north along the exit road and then east along the parkway until you hit a gravel and sand trail. Follow the trail all the way to the lighthouse. Once you’re there, you’re at the Fire Island National Seashore and you can walk up to the lighthouse or out to the beach with your dog. Please note: dogs are not allowed on the beach at Robert Moses State Park or on any of the boardwalks.
