Cedar Island Ranch is located at 120 Driftwood Dr, Cedar Island, NC 28520 next to the North Carolina Dept of Transportation Ferry Division.
Cedar Island on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast serves as an entranceway to Cape Lookout National Seashore’s wild horses and stately lighthouse, but it also holds hidden gems of its own: miles of barrier island beaches provide plenty of vacation fun, while there’s even a state-run ferry to Ocracoke Island for extra convenience!
It’s a real treat to travel up the coast aboard the Cedar Island/Ocracoke Ferry.
Over half the area is part of Cedar Island National Wildlife Refuge, providing outdoor enthusiasts with an array of outdoor adventures. Kayaking, shelling, and other watersports activities can be enjoyed while beach walkers may discover rare finds along both Pamlico Sound and Core Sound shorelines.
If you’re looking for an escape from more bustling North Carolina vacation spots, you will find it here. But if that isn’t enough activity for you, day and weekend trips are within driving distance!
We’re famous for splendid 90-minute rides and the excitement of spotting the legendary Wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs (oh, they’re real).
Crab is a verb here. Crabbing, clamming, and casting a net to catch local shrimp provides a day of fun and dinner!
Have the camera ready – it’s going to be epic. From beach or boat, the best trophy fishing of your life: speckled trout, flounder, red drum, mackerel, blue fish, and mullet.
Relax while the kids swing, slide and climb in the shade. Or join in the fun.
Many happy hours in the sand. Stop by the front office to check-out a ball – and play hard, but play nice.
Gesundheit! The horses have donated their old shoes (you should see the size of their closets!). They’ll tell you: it’s the only way to throw a shoe.
The great Cedar Island outdoors gives the ever-popular target game new excitement.
Dogs and iguanas welcome on the beach and in the campground, if they behave themselves.
There is no better way to get a close glimpse at the fantastic beauty of Cedar Island than cruising through the Bay on a canoe or kayak.
If you are looking for relaxation, our pristine white sand beaches are calling your name! The waters of the Pamlico Sound are quiet, and sandbars are frequently formed throughout the shoreline, making the waters perfect for sunbathing, walking, or playing with young children.
Fast, reliable Wi-Fi, necessary for roughing it. Did we mention it’s free?
What did you forget? We’ve got all the convenience store fare.
Clean up in our modern bath house.
Every pad gets its own fire ring with a nice bench for fire-watching. You’ll find wood at the Camp Store.
Have a picnic for every meal. Our tables are kept spotless.
Fun and freedom in a fenced fortress fit for Fido.
