Town Dock, Deep River
Deep River Town Dock (AKA Deep River Landing)  is a large municipal access pier suitable for fishing and offers excellent views of the River.  Children will especially enjoy watching the Essex Stream Train pass by (seasonally).  Historical marker describes the site's historic and cultural significance.  Nice views of Selden Neck State Park across the River.  Keep in mind that parking is limited, and as of Summer 2006, there is a $10 fee per vehicle for nonresidents.
