Has anyone ever been wheelin' there? Thinking about going to the ocean for a few days in July and would like to camp and fish there.

We'll only be there on July 7. We're camping there before we head back home on the 8th. Not sure what there is to do there but we'd like to get some fishing in as well.

We're going to Surf City and wanted to camp up there on our last night. Wanted to see what it's like. I saw that it was on fire. Is ut contained yet? Last summer when we went the Holly Game Preserve or whatever it's called was on fire.

The trail at Croatan is not intended for Jeeps. They only allow OHV's with a wheelbase of 50 inches or less.

The short answer is no, not really.

In Surf City/Topsail there are sections you can drive on, but it's for fishing puposes only and only open in the off season. You have to get a permit.

Most NC beach driving is done in the Outer Banks.

We're going to go down to Carolina beach tomorrow and Saturday. Guess you can wheel and camp there. Have always wanted to camp on the beach :-)
