    Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina

    104 acres of peace and quiet for your enjoyment. This site would be best suited for tent campers at the moment due to no bath houses or electricity for the time being. Come enjoy your stay bring a kayak or canoe and float around the 6 acres of ponds and catch some of the many bass, bream or crappie that occupy the waters. My property is located 7 miles off highway 74/76 in Whiteville and 10 miles to Lake Waccamaw. 32 miles to Ocean Isle Beach, 45 miles to Wilmington, 36 miles to North Myrtle Beach. Also in the pictures the grass hasn’t been cut and the tin hasn’t been put back on the picnic area by the pond. These things will be done before your stay! The road is grassy/dirt I would recommend a suv or truck for your stay. When there’s no burn ban in place or lack of rain i do try to keep firewood on-site but I recommend checking with me before your stay. I am new to this so please give me a chance to get everything squared away on the page. If you have any questions feel free to e mail me! I am currently working on getting the new roof installed on the shelter and the well operational upfront. If you book you will have the entire property for you and your party.

      Carolina Beach, North Carolina

      Residents and visitors have long enjoyed the beach area now known as Freeman Park. In fact, the area has become one of Carolina Beach's major attractions as it is one of the only beaches in NC that you can drive your 4X4 vehicle on.

      Whether coming to the area to swim, camp, fish, or go boating, crabbing or casting for minnows, people love Freeman Park. Visitors are drawn to the beautiful beach with its variety of wildlife, dunes and majestic sea grasses indigenous to the region.

      Overnight camping is only allowed in designated, reserved camp sites Labor Day through the Thursday before Memorial Day each year. Reservations are on a first come/first service basis. During this period, there is a $50.00 per night fee for a campsite permit.

      NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING is allowed the Friday before Memorial day through the Sunday before Labor Day.

      Visitors and campers driving 4-wheel drive vehicles must have a valid Freeman Park access pass at all times to enter the park (can be purchased online or in person at entrance to park). Camping permits can only be purchased on-line.
