  • A nice place to stop. Walk on a boardwalk on a lakes edge. Wonderful ladies working inside, gives great information. VERY CLEAN RESTROOMS. Check it out.
  • The forested wetlands of Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina provide excellent habitat for migratory birds. Large numbers of waterfowl concentrate on this relatively small area in the winter with peak numbers of well over 100,000 gathering in December and January. It is also home to the only population of wild, free roaming red wolves in the world and supports several clusters of endangered red cockaded woodpeckers. Here, a large flock of tundra swans fly over the refuge at sunset.
  • Interesting 0.65 mi boardwalk. Great place to take a break and stretch your legs to and from the Outer Banks. Clean rest rooms.
  • Its peace full clean an not over crowded
  • We could take really nice photos of the swans.
