Just For Kids


Kids LOVE the great outdoors!  Pocosin Lakes is a great place to bring your children (or your neighbor's children) to explore wildlands and learn about wildlife.  There are many activities you may plan on your own.  Use these pages to learn where to go and what to do to learn about this refuge and the wildlife and habitats found here.  


  • Walk the Scuppernong River Boardwalk
  • Bring binoculars and visit the various observation points around the refuge.
  • Spend some time really looking at the Visitor Center educational exhibits!
