May temporarily close March 1st through June 30th to protect potential nesting birds.

This sandy beach where dogs are officially allowed to run, play and swim off-leash faces onto the gentle waters of the Great South Bay. The beach is several hundred feet long and has a low dune along the back. There are no amenities such as water, benches or garbage cans. The site is designated “carry-in, carry-out,” which means people have to take out waste created by their dogs and dispose of it properly away from the site. There is a PVC pole near the entrance that people fill with bags if you forget to bring your own waste bags. This was the first natural borders dog park created by Suffolk County in 2009 as a result of legislation LI-DOG got passed into law. As a natural borders dog park, the beach has no formal fences so it’s important your dog will reliably come when called.

Exercise caution when using this site. Keep dogs on the beach and avoid allowing them to run behind the dunes. Get the latest on conditions at the beach, by checking out the Mud Creek Facebook Group.
