Discover one of North Carolina’s rarest ecological communities as coastal pond and swamp forest mingle. Massive cypress & gum trees covered with Spanish moss form a canopy for the dark waters of the 750-acre cypress millpond – a wilderness sanctuary for wetland wildlife. Paddle quietly through the pond and creek and encounter beavers, otters, owls, etc. More than 10 miles of hiking trails. Fee for camping and canoes. Or bring your own kayak or canoe.
