POINT PLEASANT, NJ – The State of New Jersey today has announced it will be closing the Point Pleasant Fishing Access and Boat Ramp Site on May 31st for the entire summer season and into the fall to perform renovations.

The project is expected to be completed in November.

The NJ DEP said improvements will include the replacement of the fence along the canal, a new concrete boat ramp, improved parking for both trailers and anglers accessing the fishing area, a new extended fishing dock and a dock for launching boats.

“Another part of the project will be creating a living shoreline utilizing native plantings and controlling erosion caused by runoff from the onsite pond,” the NJ Department of Fish and Wildlife said. “The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-November 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience the construction project presents.”
