After many long trips to Surf City and Wrightsville Beach just to put their boat in the water, residents in the Hampstead area now have a boat ramp of their own. Pender County is in the process of purchasing this boat ramp off Lewis Road for about $4 million. It's six acres, and includes a boat ramp, waterfront benches, and parking. County commissioners hope to close on the acquisition in February.
