Spruill Farm Conservation Project

3 sites · RVs, Tents110 acres · Roper, NC
(Note: no fireworks, crackers, sparklers, or garbage burning are permitted) Tip: check out the 'Phases of the Moon' calendar in photos before booking! The Spruill Farm belonged to the Spruill Family for over a hundred years and has just been set up as conservation easement protected land. It includes hardwood forest, swamp, a beautiful swimming beach* on the Albemarle Sound - one of the largest freshwater sounds in the world-, acres of farmland, vegetable garden and perhaps the largest fig orchard for hundreds of miles around. The purpose of the Spruill Farm is to further environmental research, promote ecological education and sustainable practices, and provide access for the public to the ever-diminishing shoreline experience. Please enjoy the incredible sunsets and woodland views, while respecting the serenity of this unique gem on the inner-banks. Wildlife on the property include Red Fox, River Otter, and 95 species of birds, including Bald Eagles (2 nests on the farm), nesting Osprey, Wood Ducks. Visit the 'Spruill Farm Conservation Project' on inaturalist(dot)org to see all 95 species, and upload any images from your observations. Because it is a nature preserve, please read the guidelines and rules closely if you choose to book with us. *Note: the shoreline changes with the wave action and the seasons. This makes the Bobby Wilkins shoreline trail so beautiful- always changing. If your expertise and interests coincide with the mission of the Farm, feel free to propose collaborative projects to julia@thepeanutfactory.org

Key Stone Camp

1 site · RV1 acre · Arapahoe, NC
Learn more about this land:Camp directly on the Neuse River! The views are incredible. Relax on the porch swing, swim off the sandy beach. Mins to Oriental and Minnesott Ferry.When we first saw this property we fell in love with it and we hope you can enjoy this little piece of heaven too.  Originally we put in the additional site for friends and family to enjoy and then we found Hipcamp and thought, why not?What I love about the property is the water.  It's so relaxing listening to the waves and looking out across the river watching the boats, birds, or dolphins with fish jumping and crab fishermen re-setting their pots.  Cherry Point is not far away and we have been delighted by an impromptu fireworks show or a plane fly-by.  Oriental is a small town full of sailboats and the town has a lot going on.  They have a website called Towndock to see what's happening.   You can grab a coffee or ice cream at The Bean, stroll down the waterfront looking at the boats, and drop a line off the fishing pier.  There are some great local restaurants and even a Brewery that hosts food trucks and music on the weekends.  You will not be in the middle of nowhere as there is a grocery store, a marine store and a dollar general to pick up supplies.The Minnesott Ferry (free) is a 10-minute drive and you can get to Beaufort, NC or Atlantic Beach in about an hour.Welcome!   CaraExtra Info: The camping spot is a pull-in along a shared driveway with my neighbor and so you will be perpendicular to the river, but camping is all about being outdoors and there is the yard, picnic table,  and beach to share.  We haven't put a firepit in yet, but we plan to.  When leaving, you would need to back out, but there is a driveway across the street so there is plenty of room.  The reservation will be dependent on the rainfall so I don't have the instant book feature turned on.  Because parking is on the grass, if it's really wet, you could get stuck and nobody wants that.
