Black Swamp OHV Area

AKA: Croatan National Forest, Croatan OHV, Catfish Lake Road

Summary


Black Swamp OHV Area has about eight miles of trails that wind through a mixed pine and scrub oak forest. The terrain is mostly flat but can get extremely muddy during wet weather. Deep mud puddles are common even during dry weather. The main staging area has plenty of room for parking and has a vault toilet and trash cans but no running water so come prepared. Dispersed camping is permitted.
