The closest town is Mathews.  Lots of restaurants and shops.  Also has a Food Lion grocery store.  There is a very nice, free-of-charge, public boat ramp just south of Mathews.

Beats any campground. Fantastic, private property with full access to the creek, which basically feels like you're on your own lake. Owner met us at entrance and was extremely friendly. He and his wife allow use of their aluminum canoe, which could seat 3-4 people. I would recommend you bring bug spray, mosquito candles/spray, and potentially your own firepit since our RV area did not have a firepit (confirm with owner). Many camping areas had their own firepit. We brought our kids' kayaks! Fun time! Beautiful sunsets over the water.

We had the best time tent camping on John’s land! We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves so we could spread out and use a ton of space. There’s a dock on his property with a stunning sunset view, we’ll definitely be back!

There isn't much to do as far as hiking is concerned. The use of the dock was enjoyable and being able to kayak made it an adventure. The sunsets from the dock were beautiful and the start gazing was pure amazement for everyone. So, if your looking for somewhere to just relax and get away from civilization, I world highly recommend John T's land.
