A large portion of the fishing pier will be closed from 6 am to noon on Saturday, October 21st for our 13th annual Take a Kid Fishing day.  Pier fishermen will have to fish closer to shore during that time.  Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in helping to give kids an opportunity to fish!

Due to heavy visitation on Saturdays and Sundays, expect long lines when entering the park, especially from 11am to 4pm.  We appreciate your patience in advance!
