North Jetty Has Periodic Closures for Inclement Weather

The Florida Park Service strives to provide resource based recreation to all of our visitors, however safety is always our top priority and the North Fishing Pier may close during periods of inclement weather.  When conditions are safe once again it will re-open.  


Midges, or No-See-Ums, are common in beach parks, especially during the spring and summer months.  It is recommended you bring insect repellent. 

Park Capacity

During times of peak attendance, usually weekends and holidays, the park will close intermittently from approximately 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  Visitors will be allowed to enter only as spaces become available.  If you are renting a pavilion, hosting an event or have been invited to an event please plan accordingly.  If you leave the park you will not be allowed to re-enter until space is available.   We appreciate your patience.
