    Renovations to Cape Fear River Boating Access Area Complete

    RALEIGH, N.C. – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed renovations to the Castle Hayne Boating Access Area, which is now open to the public.

    Renovations include a paved parking lot, new docks and ramps and a new fishing pier. The renovated site was paid for through funds from the Sport Fish Restoration Program and motorboat registration receipts.

    “This popular fishing spot is always busy in the spring and summer,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “This major renovation, including the addition of the fishing pier, will greatly benefit boaters and anglers headed to the Cape Fear in northeast New Hanover County.”
