A little about the area.The nearby Croatan National Forest, is one of four National Forests in North Carolina and the only true coastal forest in the East. The Croatan National Forest's 160,000 acres have pine forests, saltwater estuaries, bogs and raised swamps called pocosins. Bordered on three sides by tidal rivers and the Bogue Sound, the forest is defined by water. All this water provides a variety of recreation and diversity of wildlife- from deer, black bears and turkeys to wading birds, ospreys and alligators. Canoeing and fishing are popular on blackwater creeks and saltwater marshes.
The Hofmann Forest is also located nearby and is a major project of the Forestry School of North Carolina State University, encompassing nearly 80,000 contiguous acres. The North Carolina Forestry Foundation purchased the property in Onslow County to serve as a field laboratory for forest studies. The site reflects a wide mix of the features seen primarily in Eastern North Carolina geography. The forest is situated on what was historically referred to as the White Oak Pocosin. Pocosin is an Algonquin Indian word for swamp on a hill and aptly describes the character of this wetland forest.
