The History of the Bogue Inlet Pier

The Bogue Inlet Pier, located on the west end of Emerald Isle, has a long history in Emerald Isle, NC. It was constructed just after the incorporation of the town in 1957. It was meant to draw people to that side of town and proved successful at spurring development. A community of businesses and homes grew around the pier over the years. Camp Ocean Forest, which included camping sites and mobile home lots, was placed just west of the pier. The quaint Bogue Inlet Motel popped up on the north side of the pier on Bogue Inlet Drive. Both businesses still stand today, much the same as they were when they opened half a century ago. When you and your family visit the Bogue Inlet Pier and the surrounding community, you’ll be stepping into a piece of history.

Improvements to the Bogue Inlet Pier

The history of the Bogue Inlet Pier coupled with the improvements underway will make this a point your family will want to enjoy on every Emerald Isle vacation! A new pier means plenty of great fishing for everyone, but that’s not the end of the renovation project. The construction also includes a brand new pier house and a restaurant called Surf’s Up. When you visit the pier after its grand re-opening on March 11, 2017, be prepared for an upgraded experience with the same coastal charm!
