Now that warmer weather has finally arrived, it’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors. You can hop in your new Buick or GMC model to explore places like the Croatan National Park, where there are many things to do. We at Trent Buick GMC have created a list of just some of the many fun things you can do with family or friends this spring.
According to the Croatan National Forest website, this is the only true coastal forest in the East. Croatan has over 160,000 acres of pine forests, saltwater estuaries, bogs, and swamps. There are also several different species of wildlife in the area, including deer, black bears, wild turkeys, wading birds, and alligators. There are even carnivorous Venus fly-traps and pitcher plants.
There are several day-use areas where you can camp that are spread out over the forest park. There’s also bicycling, fishing, hiking, and even horse riding. Hunters are allowed in designated areas, and OHV riding is permitted in some areas as well. You can try picnicking in the forest for a romantic day trip or consider boating or swimming in one of the many waterways.
There’s truly something for everyone when you visit Croatan National Forest, and the best way to get there is using a vehicle from Trent Buick GMC.
