Leadbetter Point/Dune Forest Professional Review and Guide

"This park offers great primitive beaches to explore and also unique lowland forests—the heart of the Stackpole Slough is a dense cedar swamp.

Dogs and beaches go together nearly as well as dogs and Frisbees. Unfortunately for dog hikers, most of the wild, remote beaches of Washington are managed by the National Park Service, or are part of the National Wildlife Refuge program, and therefore off limits to dogs. You can hike with your pooch along the popular—and heavily populated—stretches of sand and dunes at Long Beach proper (hiking south from Long Beach toward Seaview is a good option because this strand of beach is closed to motorized traffic during the summer months). But to get away from the beach bums, sun worshippers, and general sand loungers, head to the northern end of the Long Beach peninsula and explore the often-forgotten Leadbetter Point State Park. This park offers great primitive beaches to explore and also unique lowland forests—the heart of the Stackpole Slough is a dense cedar swamp."
