River’s Edge is a quiet, family-friendly campground in Eastern NC, located on the Bay River between Bayboro NC and Vandemere, NC. With over 700 feet of waterfront, two fishing piers, and a boat ramp, Rivers Edge Family Campground offers campers the availability to enjoy Bay River’s beauty and bounty from the shoreline or by boat, kayak, canoe or whatever water toy you choose. At River’s Edge, we are truly a family campground: You may come as a stranger, but you will leave as family!

River’s Edge Campground is a sportsman’s paradise with plenty of outdoor options for the entire family to enjoy. However, before you take part in these outdoor activities, it’s a good idea to check up on NC license info. For example, do you need a fishing license? A boating license? We’re here to help you with all of this important information.

In North Carolina, a fishing license is required for anyone over the age of 16 who is using bait and/or fishing gear to catch finfish in any public waters in the state. You can apply for the license online, and there are a number of fishing licenses to choose from. You’ll want to choose the license that applies to the area where you’ll be fishing, and you can also select if you want a short-term license (many of these last 10 days), an annual license, or a lifelong one. If you like to hunt, you can also get a hunting/fishing combination license.

If you plan to fish during your visit to River’s Edge, you’ll want to go ahead and get a fishing license. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have about the process.

Another type of license to consider is a boating license. In the state of North Carolina, you need a boating license if you were born after January 1, 1988 and plan to operate a boat over 10 hp on NC waters. In order to obtain your boater’s education license, you can take an in-person class or an online course. You will then receive a paper license showing your completion of the course, and you need to keep this on your person whenever operating a boat.

Come see us this summer and enjoy the beauty of the Bay River at River’s Edge Family Campground in Eastern NC.
