Summertime and the Livin’s Easy

If you’re looking for a good fishing hole, check out our ponds and water access points. We can’t guarantee any record setting catches, but you’ll have plenty of options and there’s a good chance you’ll spot some of our resident gators. Outdoor Connection Rentals has canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and other gear needed for a great day on the water. Ordnance Point is a good place for paddling and viewing beautiful Slocum Creek. Hancock Marina is a good boat launch if you’d like to venture further out into the Neuse River.
