Buckroe Beach

Nov. 26, 2019 - The James T. Wilson Fishing Pier and property, including the adjacent pier ramp, remain closed to the public after a loose barge crashed into the 709-foot pier earlier this month, causing heavy damage to the structure. Yellow and red caution/danger tape has been posted – along with no trespassing signs ­– on the pier and ramp, and police will be called for trespassers. Engineers continue to assess the extent of damage to the popular pier, which opened in 2009.
