Welcome to The Swamp Park & Outdoor Center, just a short drive South of Wilmington, NC on HWY 17. Take a majestic canopy tour and explore the ecological benefits of this natural environment. You can choose from one of our three fun-filled activities or maybe do them all! Take flight with our guided Zipline tours, or play on the Aerial Adventure Park. You can even relax and enjoy the Shallotte River on one of our guided Swamp Boat Eco Tour.

Our zipline tour lasts approximately 2 – 2 ½ hours and includes 10 zipline stations, three bridges and more than 1.25 miles of cable. The tour starts and ends at the check-in site.

(Price: $79.00/person. Group rates available starting at 5 people for the Canopy tour and up to 10 members. Give us a call for more information).

For the more adventurous, climb near the top of the Main Tower and step off the Pelican Dive. Visitors take in a variety of natural sights and sounds that encompass this beautiful region.

The Swamp Park offers more than just adventures but ecological education. With something for all ages, these spectacular zipline adventures and breathtaking views are all here waiting for you!

We also offer a mile long River Walk trail on raised walkway. Breathe in the fresh air and take in the sights and sounds of an untouched Carolina land. Check out the large number of turtles as well as the other natural inhabitants that hang around in our natural estuary.

Just interested in the walking trail? No problem, your $10 admission goes directly to our Alligator relocation project and the conservation of all of our swamp life.



That’s right folks, we have 18 Live American alligators that we are honored to provide a safe home for. As a part of our continued commitment to outdoor education we have a reptile sanctuary that houses our rescued critters. Come and learn the prehistoric history of our reptilian friends.
