Locating boating access areas
With more than 300,000 registered vessels in North Carolina, boating is one of the most popular activities in the state. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission provides more than 200, free Boating Access Areas (BAA) to 80 different bodies of water. You can find BAA areas by address, a county menu, and a waterbody menu on its interactive locator website map. There’s also topics to select such as universal access, canoe access and restrooms (click on the icons that come up for full information). This site page also has a map specifically for striped bass fishing access areas on the Roanoke River, and information about BAA area closings on the site’s page.
