Hilton Head Island has its own Dog Friendly Island dog park. It is in the Chaplin Community Park, located just off William Hilton Parkway between Singleton Beach Road and Burke’s Beach Road. The park is completely fenced and “double gated” so you will be able to let your dog off-leash as long as it’s not aggressive towards people or other dogs.
