For some 25 plus years this has been the most wonderful family spot. It was so nice to drive along the sound side waters edge but...NOT ANYMORE. Thanks to some ignorant judge in Raleigh, NC, the National Park Service is now charging $120.00 for this. This land was was donated in the 30's to the NPS for family recreation...now government has simply gone to far again with it's greed and we no longer visit.

One of the best, most secluded areas in NC. This place is perfect for sailing, swimming, kiteboarding, or anything else you can think to do in the water, right up the road from Buxton so there is plenty to do and see. Love this area.

This is a kitesurfing and windsurfing meca on highway 12 between Avon and Buxton. Great for sound swimming. Best sunset viewing! Has restroom and shower facilities and is well-maintained by the National Park Service

Good place to watch windsurfers,kite boarders and the like. It's not a large area and parking can be hairy at times. When the sun goes down it is spectacular to watch.
