DescriptionMost commonly called the Antioch Bridge Pier, this is the most heavily visited pier in the Pittsburg-Antioch area. As usual, the reason for the pier’s popularity is that it yields a good number of fish, in fact an almost unbelievable number of small striped bass at times.
Although the park is only open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., fishing is allowed 24 hours a day (so no overnight camping).
Lights, benches and windbreaks are on the pier. Restrooms are near the foot of the pier as is a fish cleaning station. Nearby, near the foot of the pier, is a 4.5 acre meadow area which has 10 picnic tables and barbecues.
Follow Highway 4 east until it turns into Highway 160; just before you get to the bridge take the Wilbur Avenue off ramp (it is the last exit before the bridge), then turn left on Bridgehead Road and follow it to the entrance to the Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline Park. The pier is the main feature of the park.
