River Landing offers a totally new and different
experience in Roanoke River Partners' camping platform facilities.
this campsite features a screened and covered building with a
private, gated entry off a beautiful river boardwalk. Access to
restrooms and showers are only a few feet away. The River
Landing Boardwalk has picturesque views of the Roanoke River
Wetlands across the river. The Boardwalk, platform, and restroom
facilities are fully handicapped accessible. The Platform is
elevated above the wetland floor, and while less than 1 mile to
downtown, provides a very scenic and convenient location to access
the Roanoke River. The mouth to Sweetwater Creek is less than 1 mile
downstream of the platform and provides for easy paddling through
pristine waters lined with cypress trees and abundant wildlife. Just
across the road is a tackle shop that can provide all your needs for
fishing from the Boardwalk.
NC Fishing License regulations are in
effect. Ample parking is available in the designated Boardwalk
parking area across the street.
This platform is only a short walk to the connecting Skewarkee Trail
(paved walking/biking trail) and it is also convenient to downtown
for provisions, a pizza at Domino's, or land excursions to view the
historic downtown district or historic residential districts.
Upstream of the platform and within walking distance is Moratoc Park
which has been renovated and updated to accommodate a wider range of
uses for the community and visitors to our area.
Moratoc Park was the area first inhabited by English settlers to
Williamston. It is believed to be the site of the earliest skirmish
in the new world between English and Native Americans in 1586
approximately 2 years prior to the "Lost Colony" event. Moratoc Park
includes an original one room schoolhouse and original log tobacco
*Campers reserving this campsite
