We’re spotlighting our Swim Guide sites this summer, so you can get more info on the places we sample, and maybe find a new place to explore!
Mason’s Landing is a boat landing access area located on Tranters Creek/downstream on the Tar that is managed by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. This site is located at 625 Clarks Neck Road and is a great site for paddling and fishing access. Out of the 5 weeks of the Swim Guide program so far this summer, Mason’s Landing has passed 4 times. So get out and enjoy this access point! – Amelia
This serene site is located on the Neuse River as an NC State Wildlife boat ramp. With a fishing pier and a boat launch, it is a great area to spend some time outdoors. This location is surrounded by natural wetlands and is an ideal place to encounter some of North Carolina’s wildlife. – Cait
