No Dogs Allowed on Wrightsville Beach

APRIL 7, 2006 -- Wrightsville Beach is now off-limits to dogs, with or without a leash.

A representative with Park Services said the beach is just too crowded during the summer and dogs are not allowed. Although there are signs at every public access point, the rule still catches some dog owners by surprise.

Dogs are still welcome at Fort Fisher State Park but they must be on a leash.
