This place is great to enjoy the view of the beach and also to see how the waves hit the down part of the pier making a great background for pictures

$3 per person if you want to walk out on the pier - there is a restaurant on the pier but it's not open for breakfast. Nice beach - great place to watch the waves crash against the pier.

Like the other review the pier is setup for fleecing fishermen. It is expensive to fish (entry fee, addition fee per pole, etc) and looks like a prison visitation entrance at the front. If you just want to walk around to the end expect to...More

Right down the road is the National Seashore and it is only $20 a year for membership. Complete with showers and RV hookups, not sure if they charge but look them up. That would be the best place to camp.
Pet friendly?
