A large portion of the fishing pier will be closed from 6 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 21st for our annual Take a Kid Fishing event. Pier anglers during this time will not have much available space and 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!
A small portion of the fishing pier is closed due to damage by Hurricane Ian. We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide updates as available.
Please be aware that parking is first-come, first-serve and is LIMITED. Shelter guests are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to arrive outside peak hours (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) especially on weekends and holidays in the summer. The park is extremely busy during this time and may reach normal capacities and close for a period of time. Should you forget something, you may want to check our retail stores before leaving the park, as the wait to re-enter could be extensive, and you could be turned away if the park is at capacity.
