Residents and visitors have long enjoyed the beach area now known as Freeman Park. In fact, the area has become one of Carolina Beach's major attractions as it is one of the only beaches in NC that you can drive your 4X4 vehicle on. 

Whether coming to the area to swim, camp, fish, or go boating, crabbing or casting for minnows, people love Freeman Park. Visitors are drawn to the beautiful beach with its variety of wildlife, dunes and majestic sea grasses indigenous to the region.

  • NOTICE: The effects of tides and erosion still exist, and the northern areas of Freeman Park remain closed to all vehicular traffic.

    Intermittent closures could still be possible based on limited beach area and level of patron use. Public safety staff will perform assessments regularly to determine when additional sections of the park can safely be opened, or if additional closures are required.
