Fisherman's Cove Conservation Area Reviews
Visited Sandy Hook for the first time yesterday with my boyfriend. Neither of us have been to this beach but have visited just about every other NJ shore beach. I absolutely loved it here. I am not a ... more »
We took our dogs to Fisherman's Cove dog beach to see if they like the beach. I read several different reviews and was not sure what to think. It was a nice experience. It is a small beachfront. There... more »
Great spot on the Manasquan River where one can swim with their dog or walk a few more steps and sunbath without the dogs. Great place to sit and watch the fishing boats coming and going out the inlet... more »
Great free dog beach. Dogs must be leashed at all times. There's a nice but small section of beach to walk and play. Some may prefer sneakers or water shoes because there are rocky sections of the beach. The waves are small and it's ideal for playing fetch in the water. The end of the dog beach is clearly marked by a fence post and in direct sight of the park ranger building. A ranger will come right down and ask you to stay in the marked area. I often see fishermen in the area just beyond the dog beach and would worry about my pooch getting a paw hooked. The township recently took away the dog beach because the residents complained so much about dogs beyond the designated area. Many families with small children use the cove because of the calm water. Local dog lovers had to unite to fight to get the privilege to use the beach back. Please follow the rules. In season the beach can be packed with both people and dogs. In season it is very difficult to find street parking if you don't get there early leaving you with a long walk on hot pavement/sidewalk for paws. There is a very close parking lot that starts charging at 8am, I think $7 last year. Early risers can get in and out before they start to charge. It's a decent sized lot but it does fill up quickly. Please bring some extra baggies and clean up after yourself & your pooch, plenty of waste bins around.
Ugly dog beach. Unclean. Dogs must be on leash at all times. Constant boat traffic right in front of you. Smell of oil and exhaust. Noise from boats. Why would anyone ever go here????
I love the dog beach. My dogs always have a blast. I gave this place a rating of three because they need to enforce that dogs need to be leashed at all times. People seem to have no respect for that law. I also gave that rating because the beach needs to be kept cleaner. The beach is so nice I would hate seeing it unkept.
Half dog beach half beach. Friendly people and fun times. Beach is not clean.
A beautiful view of the Manasquan river, this park has both a dog beach and a separate fishing area and is free. There is ample street parking during the week, but given its proximity to the ocean beaches, weekend parking during the summer is tight. There is a municipal lot with daily paid parking very close by. A restaurant and a snack shop are within a couple of blocks of the park.
