True, there are only 6 species of venomous snakes in NC. If I am correct all but one are found in the same counties that he will be visiting. Also, When you go deep in the swamp you are way more likely to come in contact with them. I've seen them quite a few times myself. It's better to know they are there and be prepared.Originally Posted by [b
Carolina State Park is one site I was going to tell you about. The cp's there are growing .3 of a mile on one side and about .5 a mile on the other. While you're in Carolina Beach, you should also stop at Fort Fisher. It's an old civil war fort. It has a nice museum. There is also a nice Aquarium there. I have heard that there are vft's growing on a nature trail around the Aquarium, but I can't say for sure.
There is a ferry that runs from Ft.Fisher to Southport (Brunswick Co.). It cost only $5 per car. It cut's the time of your travel to Carolina Beach in half. It's perfect if you're going from the cp sites in Brunswick county to Carolina Beach.
I'll send you detailed maps and directions if you want.
