An emerging destination in northeast North Carolina, the Lower Roanoke River and its tributaries offer a unique wilderness experience for kayakers and canoeists. Meandering through the Coastal plain to the Atlantic Ocean, the Roanoke spreads out through the largest intact bottomland hardwood swamp forest east of the Mississippi. Home to black bear, river otter, white-tail deer, bobcat, beaver, and mink, plus more than 200 bird species. The river is renowned for its abundance of fish, too. Ancient bald cypress trees and towering tupelos form a lush canopy overhead.

Camping platforms off the river have been completed as part of the development of this water trail. Platforms have been constructed between Hamilton, Plymouth and up the Cashie River to Windsor with nearly 140 miles of water trail linking the platforms. Call or email about reserving a platform.
