We have been going to JP for many years and it has never been better than it is now!! My only complaint is the new fee just to walk out on the pier - will definitly cut down on our visits :(

Great place to go for swimming and playing in water. Life guard on duty. Bathroom, gift shop, drinks and snacks. Pay $2 to walk out on pier. More to fish. Additional parking across street. Crowded because it is convenient and clean.

I don't even like to fish any more and this place was very cool. They re-built it using heavy concrete and timber a few years ago, and now it's like a massive resort from Aspen Colorado.

You have to pay to just walk out on the pier. Not much to see. People who want to fish from the pier have to pay a lot more.

Gives you a great view of Nags Head beach from the ocean view. Didn't fish but saw many who were catching!

Very disappointed that this pier costs 12 dollars to fish off of it....Please my outer banks visitors fish for free off the catwalk on the bridge by Pea Island. Or the wonderful free fishing piers under the bridge that connects Nags Head to Manteo.

Lots of little placards with the history of the pier to read, access to the beach on either side or straight up the ramp to the pier house, no matter which direction you choose to start in, you'll have fun! Once you enter the pier house, there is a small lobby with an aquarium and the gift shop (which does... More

Took my young family here for the first time the day after Hurricane Arthur (they were the only state park open in the area that day!). Inside, there was only one small aquarium to view, their website made it seem like there were more. It's currently $2 for an adult to walk on the pier but worth it because there's... More
