Cedar Point Recreation Area

Area Status: Open
This area is 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.
