Hammocks Beach State Park Might Be The Most Beautiful Campground In The Entire State Of North Carolina

Planning a camping trip? Few people realize there are 11 beachfront tent camping sites along the secluded island found at Hammocks Beach State Park. If you’re not entirely familiar with this unique state park, it’s split into two sections: one found on the mainland at Swansboro, and additional acreage found on three barrier islands. The park runs a ferry service to the largest of the three islands, Bear Island, which has four miles of pristine beach along the Atlantic – plus a primitive campground only steps from the ocean.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
