New fishing pier opens at Lincoln State ParkSeptember 24, 2018

LINCOLN CITY — Members of the Friends of Lincoln State Park group gathered on Sept. 19 to inaugurate a new fishing pier on the park’s lake.
The project began nearly two years ago and the Friends of Lincoln State Park spent that time raising funds and exploring various options and specs for the pier.
Located across the lake from the boat house and beach, the pier was delivered and installed in July between the dam and Nature Center. It is 20 feet wide and 32 feet long and is connected to the shoreline by a 6-by-12 bridge. The pier is constructed with special railing that makes it friendly for fishing by those with disabilities as well as little ones who are not yet tall enough to see over the railing.
The project was 100 percent funded by the Friends of Lincoln State Park.
“This has been an important and high priority project for our Friends group over the past couple of years,” said President Dan Wilkinson. “We certainly hope that this new pier will add to the experience of visitors to Lincoln State Park for many years to come. Whether or not you are a fisherman, this new pier provides an incredible view of the lake and provides a quiet spot to reflect on the natural surroundings of the park.”
Earlier this year, the Friends of Lincoln State Park donated two kayaks to the boat rental, which previously had not rented kayaks
