  • Croatan NF Rec Area Updates - January 30

    Pine Cliff horse trails on Croatan National Forest reopened in December. Pine Cliff Road is open up to the entrance to the parking lot but barricades have been placed to restrict access beyond this point due to continued hazards on the road.

    Oyster Point Campground will reopen after the road is repaired though a date for reopening is not available at this time. Flanners Beach/Neuse River Recreation Area will remain closed until hazards can be mitigated.

    Many other recreation areas are open including Island Creek Trail, Patsy Pond Trail, Haywood Landing Boat Launch, Cahooque Creek Boat Launch, and Brice's Creek Recreation Area. As a reminder, camping is not allowed in these areas but is allowed at Long Point Boat Launch, which is also open.

    For more information, contact the Croatan Ranger District at (252) 638-5628.
