Most of the pier was blocked off as it gets too windy to be on the pier, making it unsafe. We did see a few people out surfing on the waves in the lake. Watched the sunset behind the light house. Very cool place!!!

Our Pier had the catwalk removed for renovation this spring. Although the Catwalk is not yet back in place, the base of the pier is new concrete and is a lovely place to walk. It's dog friendly but don't forget to bring a poop bag.

We went here early November and it was cool to see. Very windy but worth the walk. It's in the middle of refurbishment but walkable.

The park was closed for season and repairs so we could not get close to lighthouse. Went to honor my dad's Coast Guard service.

Was only a short walk since they were making repairs to most of the pier. Fun anyway. Would like to go there after it's complete and opened up.

Walking the pier to the lighthouse and back is an enjoyable experience, especially around dusk to watch the sun set over the lake. Note that you can not enter the lighthouse - this is for walking (and fishing) only.

Not sure the legality but I've seen lots of dogs out there. I'd use a leash to be safe.
