Croatan NF: Oyster Point Campground

Oyster Point

The Oyster Point Campground provides the perfect base camp for exploring the 20-mile Neusiok Trail, which runs from near the campground north to the Pine Cliff Recreation Area. It’s also a good base for kayaking the Newport River, which explores the lowlands of the Croatan. Up for big water? There’s access to Bogue Sound and the waters off Beaufort.
