SEA LEVEL, N.C. (October 20, 2011) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed renovations to the Salter’s Creek Boating Access Area, which is now open to the public.

The ramp was replaced, and a fixed dock was replaced with a larger, floating dock with handrails to assist disabled boaters. Wildlife Commission staff also replaced the bulkhead and improved the maneuvering area.

“This site in Carteret County gives boaters more convenient access to Salter’s Creek and the waters of the Pamlico and Core sounds,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “This site is frequented by recreational boaters and local commercial fishermen and women, along with deer and duck hunters. We hope they are as excited about this facelift to Salter’s Creek as we are.”

Renovations to the boating access area were funded from motorboat registration receipts.

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has more than 200 free, 24-hour boating access areas across the state. For more information, visit the boating page on www.ncwildlife.org. To find a boating access area near you, visit the interactive boating access area locator map.
