Oyster Point Campground is situated on the Intercoastal Waterway and is the trailhead for the 21-mile Neusiok Trail. The trail meanders through cypress swamps, loblolly pines and vast bogs of thick vegetation. Oyster Point's shallow water boat ramp provides a launching point for boaters and angles. Nestled under tall loblolly pines, the campground features 15 sites and two vault toilets. Eash site has a picnic table, fire grill, parking spur, tent pad and lantern post. There is no power and water tanks can be filled at several potable water spigots located throughout the CG. Sites are very private with low shrub growth between sites and sites are spaced well apart and are of good size. One row of sites "back-up" to the Newport River all though it is a 75-100 foot walk to the water. There is an unimproved launch perfect for kayakers, canoers and small jon-boat users. CG is app. 5 miles from Newport and 20 minutes from Morehead City.
