Default Camping

We're thinking about doing a little tent camping/fishing in the next few days before the memorial day crowds (weather permiting). Can anyone recomend any in the area?

Thanks in advance!!

Rivals Lookout park ......... sorta off Wilmington ....... direct access to the river (can camp right on the bank in grass) has a small boat launch also a bike trail about 1/4 mile away. TENTS ONLY



there is a slight fee.... I think 5ish dollars per day ...... can get electricity also I think for a little more $... would probably havta make a phone call for that........ the fee is paid in an honor system type box off the boat launch.
