  • Awesome place! The staff are very friendly and gave us suggestions of other places to see in the area. Great hiking trails and awesome kayaking. A must see when in Elizabeth City!!
  • Very impressed with the personable staff here. They gave me great advice which allowed me to bag a photo of a Black Bear around mid-day.
  • A good place to spend time they have canoes for rent . Nature and bike paths. 3 miles of paved walking paths and 20+ miles of dirt paths.
  • Offers a great opportunity for the local community and beyond to learn about native plants, animals, ecosystems and the important services they provide to people in a diminishing forested landscape in the coastal plain of North Carolina.
  • The name implies exactly what it is. Lame. Lots of bugs too.
