Oak Island Dog Rules

Oak Island allows dogs on the beach year round but does have a leash law. All dogs must be properly leashed while enjoying the sun and surf. Be sure to bring a bag to dispose of your dogs waste. Many accesses have dispensers with plastic bags available if you forget. Dogs are allowed off of their leash and permitted to run free on the beach beginning October 15th until March 15th.  


Dog Parks

Hannah A. Templeton Park is a passive natural park and dog park along Oak Island Drive between 41st and 42nd streets east. This park was preserved in 2006 in an effort to protect the oak trees on the land and now welcomes visitors with their furry friends.

Service Animals & Emotional Support Animals

If you are traveling with a service dog, Coastal Vacation Resorts waives our normal pet fees in accordance with the ADA regulations and Federal Fair Housing Laws. A service dog, as defined by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) is a dog that has been specifically trained to assist with tasks or work for a person with a disability. We obey all service animal regulations with documentation.

Resources for ADA information: Requirements for Service Animals & Service Animals FAQ. Emotional support dogs, however, are not trained to accomplish specific tasks or jobs for a person and are intended to provide comfort to an individual. You are more than welcome to bring your emotional support dog to our pet-friendly rentals, but keep in mind that fees are not waived.
