The approximately 160,000 acres of the Croatan National Forest lie in parts of Carteret, Craven, and Jones Counties. The forest has a rich variety of wildlife and plant species that can be observed from trails such as the Neusiok or the Pine Cliffs along the Neuse River. As part of the Croatan Game Land, hunters will find wild turkeys, deer, and black bears. Some of the best blackwater fishing in North Carolina is found in the waterways. Camping facilities ranges from primitive sites to those with electricity.
