Croatan National Forest

Paddling into the swamp: boating in Croatan National Forest

Boating in Croatan National Forest is probably the most charming North Carolina adventure. Spreading over 160,000 acres, this vast, forested land is becoming increasingly popular as a family-friendly weekend gateway. Being the East’s only coastal forest, it is, surprisingly, a genuine water kingdom. Dense woodlands are bordered from three sides by three rivers and, from one side, by the calm and chilling waters of Boque Sound. In result, one is certainly overwhelmed here by the abundance of marine and saltwater wildlife. Countless water trails navigate through saltwater estuaries, bogs and pocosins (raised swamps) – and their shallow, dark waters are just perfect for flat-bottomed boats, which means a hell of a lot of adventure for you and your canoe, raft or kayak.
