Social distancing at the beach ... life is good!

Fort Fisher! This is a hidden gem; my family loves it. Share your experiences in the comments. We would also love to see your favorite pictures.

What a great place to relax and social distance at the beach! Stay in the cottages or park your RV/trailer, but if they are booked don’t forget to ask about the basic barracks ($40/night). Fort Fisher benefits are available to Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, Coast Guard, Retired Military, DoD Civilians and 100% Disabled Veterans with valid DoD ID cards. Additionally, veterans with a valid VHIC card that displays Purple Heart, Former POW or Service Connected are authorized users.

Can anyone tell me if the RV sites are open? I'm supposed to check in this week and I've been calling for days, but no one answers and the voicemail is full. Plus I haven't seen any updates on FB except for one about tent sites. Thanks!
We had two very special days at Fort Fisher military recreation Center. One was an evening family pool party to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The other was our first kayaking adventure with our two grandchildren, ages 6 and 10. Both were a blast! The recreation area personnel were very helpful and also very conscientious about wearing masks and sanitizing equipment… Which we appreciated greatly. Thanks to all of you for helping to make our time in your area so enjoyable.
Your property is always so beautiful at the golden hour!
