Freeman Park truly offers something for everyone as an island hot spot on summer weekends, a remote spot for a quiet walk once fall arrives, and a great camp site all year long! There is nothing quite like waking up to the sun rising over the ocean from the comfort of your cozy tent.
If you would like to plan a trip to "The North End" be it for an hour, an afternoon, or a weekend, consult the rules and regulations for everything you need to know. A few highlights include:
- 4 Wheel Access Permits are required. Day passes can be purchased at the park entrance. For information on purchasing a season pass visit the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce.
- Dogs are allowed on leashes from April 1st to September 30th, and off leash under voice command from October 1st to March 31st. Always remember to pick up after your pets!
- Please do not leave anything behind at Freeman Park. In order to preserve the natural beauty for future visitors if you brought it in, please bring it with you when you go.
To access Freeman Park and one of North Carolina's most beautiful beaches, come over the bridge onto Pleasure Island and take N Lake Park Blvd into town. Turn left onto Carl Winner Dr, and then take another left onto Canal Dr which will end at Freeman Park.
