This place is a gem of a state park!!!!
Since it's not right next to the coast it's relatively quiet and not crowded. I went here on the tail end of a mid September weekend and found the entire campground to myself! That is unheard of on the West Coast! There is a beautiful sound access.
This is boutique car camping! There are only 14 camping spots all nicely spaced from each other and in a wooded location. Sites 11-14 are around a little peninsula on the sound so all have some water view. There are a handful of water spouts around the campground, and each site has a parking spot, campsite, table and a lamp hanger. The lamp hanger took me a while to figure out since we don't have these on the west coast it is a suspended hook that looks a bit medieval on first glance.
Bring your paddle boards or canoe to float around the sound. There is a great outline of a 3 mile canoe trail mapped out by the put in. (see my photos)
Ohhhh and it goes without saying near the North Carolina sound BRING BUG SPRAY. This is serious deet country.
site: private. large. wooded. amenities: clean. no showers. attractions: hiking. swimming. lake. Camped here on recommendation. Will go back.
Goose Creek has good campsites scattered about in a stand of long leaf pine. The sites are spacious, well equipped and well spaced (private). There are several water stations and composting toilets (no showers).
There are plenty of good hiking trails as well.
Here some pictures from earlier this year. My fiance loves it there!
I love this place. The view of Goose Creek is awesome to wake up to, and the grounds are always well kept. The staff is wonderful, and willing to help. I've been there about 30 times now, and couldn't think of a better place to park and camp!
