#ThisIsThePlace: Carolina Beach State Park offers new camping options


CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — If you’re looking to take a break from the beach, there’s plenty to see and do at the Carolina Beach State Park.

You can camp, fish, or just go take a hike along the many trails.

The park first opened back in 1969 with 83 campsites including 4 new cabins.

The park has a wide variety of distinct habitats including the native Venus fly traps.

“This time of the year they are actually blooming, late May into June, so they send up a white stalk with a flower,” Park Ranger Chris Helms said. “It makes it a little bit easier to spot and of course people come from all around to see this unique plant.”

There is a marina and a public boat ramp at the park near Snow’s Cut so you have an easy access to the water.

Helms says when you’re camping, you can get peace and quiet but only be a mile or two away from local businesses.
