Area Status: Open
The Cedar Point Recreation Area, near the mouth of the White Oak River, is surrounded 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 "nursery" for commercial seafood, including fish, shrimp, crabs and oysters.
This recreation area is a dynamic place affected by hurricanes, rising sea levels, and insect epidemics, such as Southern pine beetles that devastate nearby pine trees. On a daily basis, this living community contends with the change brought by the tides. This is a place to slow down and savor nature's beauty.
