Natural Features

Cedar Point, at the mouth of the White Oak River, is bordered by a salt marsh and a coastal forest. The salt marsh, where fresh water meets salt water, stretches out like a sea of grass. This nutrient-rich wetland is a valuable habitat for commercial seafood, including fish, shrimp, crabs and oysters.

The recreation area is part of the Croatan National Forest, a 160,000-acre tract on North Carolina's coast, bordered on three sides by tidal rivers and Bogue Sound.

Nearby Attractions

The campground is a short drive from the developed barrier island town of Bogue Banks.

Recreation

Canoeing and fishing are popular options. Power boating is allowed on the White Oak River.

Visitors can hike the Tidelands National Trail, a 1.9-mile path divided in two loops that lend themselves to wildlife viewing. Ospreys and the occasional dolphin can be viewed along the loops.

The recreation area is also home to a picnic area and shallow draft boat launch.
