If you have an active, outdoorsy pet, there are a few places near Fort Pierce for you and your pet to go.
Walton Rocks Beach is a dog-friendly beach where you can let your dogs roam leash free on 24 acres of property, according to the St. Lucie County, Florida website. Amenities include the usual, such as swimming, fishing, picnic tables, restrooms, showers, pavilions, and free parking.
Fort Pierce Inlet State Park is a partially pet-friendly place that allows pets in their main and additional parking areas, as well as their Coastal Hammock Trail. However, pets aren’t allowed in the other areas of the park, such as the playground area, most of the beach areas, the picnic table areas, and more.
Of course, Dockside Inn, which is located 5 1/2 miles from Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and about 11 miles from Walton Rocks Beach, is also pet friendly. Pets are allowed so along as they weigh 50 pounds or less, and are allowed to stay in all rooms except the waterfront rooms. Pet owners only need to pay additional $50 to bring their pets with them to stay at Dockside.
