North Carolina's Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge

Hidden in the eastern part of North Carolina, the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge consists of over 50,000 acres of open water, marsh, timber, and cropland habitats with Lake Mattamuskeet as its glorious centerpiece. In fact, Lake Mattamuskeet, North Carolina's largest natural lake, covers 40,000 acres with a surprisingly shallow basin depth of 2 to 3 feet or about a "swan's neck deep."

February 27, 2019

As soon as you make the entrance to the Gulf Islands National Seashore Fort Pickens Campground, it is easy to imagine what it must have looked like to the Spanish explorer Tristan de Luna in 1559.
