Ninth Street Pier Facts

Hours: Open 24 hours although the parking lot that fronts the pier is posted for no parking from 1/2 hour after sunset to 1/2 hour before sunrise.

Facilities: No lights or benches on the pier although there is a small fish cleaning station. Restrooms are located a short walk up from the launching ramp. Nearby is a small picnic area with tables and barbecue grills.

Handicapped Facilities: Because of the narrow conditions of this pier and the steep incline up to the parking area is not a pier I would recommend for handicapped fishermen. However, there are handicapped parking spaces adjacent to the restrooms, and handicapped restroom facilities. The railing on the pier is approximately 42 inches high.

How To Get There: From I780 take the Seventh Street exit south to Military Street, turn right and follow to Ninth Street, turn left and follow it to the end of the street and the pier.

  1. You can update the write up as mitten crabs have been eradicated from the area for some years now.
    As far as access, free parking and 24 hour access are still in order. Of course, if there is a disturbance , you can always be asked to leave at 10pm.

  2. Robert, Glad you caught that. I was going to go back and revise the mitten crab information on all the local piers but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Ken
