Review of Bayboro, North Carolina

Small town and rural recreation
Star Rating - 3/30/2008
The main recreation in the area seems to be hunting and fishing. During deer season, some hunters park their pickups on the rural highways and release their dogs to "run" the deer to where they can shoot them from the road. We're hoping laws will eventually be enacted to do away with this. There are a number of hunt clubs with reserves for deer, bears, ducks and doves. There are many creeks and rivers with public and private access for fishing. To my knowledge, the only sports events in the area are high school, and there are no public parks other than the little port on Bay River. There are few, if any, concerts and plays outside of school and church events. Parades are held on the main street several times a year. The public library is the high school library. People often go to New Bern or Oriental (30-45 minutes' drive) for recreation and cultural events.
