Off Hwy 53
Atkinson, NC 28421


Located in Pender County near Atkinson this is your opportunity to own your retreat on the banks of the Black River. The Black River was designated an Outstanding Resource Water In 1994 because it is one of the cleanest, high-quality waterways in North Carolina. A 40-foot-wide easement leads you from NC 53 to this peaceful secluded property. Once you arrive, relaxation begins. You can camp or pull in a RV to spend some time to get away from the fast-paced life of Wilmington which is only about 30 minutes away. There are options to make this a property to use all year. Hunting for white-tail deer in the fall, duck in the winter, turkey in the spring and fishing every chance you get. The owner tells of her memories of picnicking, swimming, fishing and boating from this base camp. This is an ideal place to launch your john boat, canoe or kayak and explore this natural and scenic river. The river flows 66 miles through portions of Sampson, Pender, and Bladen counties before emptying into the Cape Fear River 14 miles above Wilmington. Less than a mile from the Black River Cypress Forest Preserve, you can navigate thru The Three Sisters swamp which is home to the oldest trees east of the Rocky Mountains. You will relish drifting down the slow-moving tea-colored stream flanked by stately bald cypress draped with Spanish moss. Many of the trees are more than 500 years old. The oldest identified tree, scientifically labeled BLK69 and locally known as Methuselah, dates back to 364 AD.
