Cedar Island

Trip Planner USA  /  North Carolina  /  Cedar Island
(3.8/5 based on 50+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Cedar Island is an island and a small coastal unincorporated community in eastern North Carolina and some folks believe that the area has a connection to the Roanoke Lost Colony of the late 16th century. Cedar Island is located in Cedar Island Township, Carteret County and was populated with local Native Americans prior to European settlers arriving sometime in the 18th century or possibly before. It is also the location of the state ferry transportation system dock where travel can be made across Pamlico Sound to the island and village of Ocracoke in Hyde County.RoadsThere are only 2 main roads on Cedar Island, Cedar Island Rd and Lola Rd. Northbound Route 12 is the only way to drive to Cedar Island without using a ferry connection. Southbound NC 12 continues from the ferry terminal across Cedar island to meet with US 70 on the mainland near the community of Sea Level. Motorists traveling north on NC 12 board the ferry to Ocracoke Island from Cedar Island.AmenitiesIn 2005, the population of Cedar Island was about 350. Many residents are fishermen; although fishing is declining in the area. The other major employer is the North Carolina Ferry System. There are three churches on the island: Methodist, Free Will Baptist, and Primitive Baptist. The Methodist and Free Will Baptist maintain regular meetings and Sunday services.
