Spend some time at the beach with Fido and the great folks of LI-DOG for some OFF-LEASH summer fun!

Please join us at Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach in East Patchogue on Saturday, July 28th for a couple of hours letting our furry friends frolic in the sand and surf of the Great South Bay!

There’ll be plenty of exercise to be had running along the coastline or in the water as Mud Creek is an off-leash dog beach. A clean-up of the Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach will start at 8:30 a.m., so if you and your fur baby would like a little extra time in the sun, please join us in getting the area ready for our meetup!

Water will be provided for humans and dogs. Bring your own towel and beach chairs!

PLEASE NOTE: Mud Creek is a natural borders dog park, which means it is not fenced on most sides. For everyone’s safety, please only bring dogs that are well-socialized—used to playing with other dogs off-leash—and that will reliably come when called. Please NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.

Mud Creek has no amenities and is considered “carry-in, carry-out” (i.e. no trash receptacles, no poop bag stations, no bathrooms and no water fountains). LI-DOG will have extra water and poop bags on hand, but please help us make the event a success by remembering to bring these items.

Parking is on the street and there is a narrow path to the water by the sign for Mud Creek Park.

PLEASE NOTE: In May, a chain-link fence was installed to create a “dog-exclusion” zone. To access the beach, please use the narrow path to the water by the sign for Mud Creek Park and walk dogs ON-LEASH through the area. Please be respectful and keep OFF-LEASH dogs out of this area. Avoid using the double-gated entrance. It is still under construction and it leads to a large expanse of sand where broken glass has often been found.

RAIN DATE: Sunday July 29th at 10AM. In the event of inclement weather, please check Meetup or our Facebook group as we will post any weather-related changes by 9 AM that morning.

We hope to see you and your dogs on Saturday, July 28th at the beach! (Please note this is a date change from July 21st.)
