Neuse River Campground


Located under tall pines and hardwoods, each of the 40 campsites is equipped with a picnic table, fire ring and lantern poles. Two of these sites only allow double occupancy. Electrical hookups are available at 24 sites for an additional fee. The campground offers showers, restrooms, drinking water and a trailer dump station for registered campers’ use.

Users can stretch their legs on an accessible one-mile trail that winds through the mixed pine-hardwood forest near both the campground and picnic area. More than five additional miles are also available to bikers and hikers, but no motorized vehicles or horses are allowed.

For more information, read the Neuse River Recreation Opportunity Guide.
