Yes, off the pier fishing is allowed without the need to purchase a license. Right past doggy Beach, many people fish off the beach near the jetty.

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !

Huntington State & City Beach have campgrounds. You could put up a tent of this type. Free standing tents you don't see. Most campers are motorhomes or trailers
