Salter Path, North Carolina Feb 20, 2009
Salter Path is west of Pine Knoll Shores at mile marker 11. The name of Salter Path came into use in the late 1800's when the local fishermen wore a path beside Ricky Salter's house. They were hauling their catch from the beach to the sound so that they could barter with boats from the mainland. Salter Path is home to many descendants of the area’s original settlers and migrants from Portsmouth Island. There are numerous motels in the area, some with great views of the Atlantic Ocean. There is still one campgrounds in the area. It offers both sound side and ocean side spaces. Many spaces are rented for the season set up for a more permanent campsite. Larger trailers with underpinning. My favorite place, Salter Path Family Campground is now closed and destined to be developed into a high rise hotel. There is a great beach access with parking, restrooms, showers and picnic tables. Be aware this is no place to take a 2 wheel drive vehicle onto the beach. The sand is too loose and fluffy at the ramp. Even 4 wheel vehicles get stuck at the ramp. There is a beach permit require to drive on the beach. I think it is $25.00 per year. You can get this from the Indian River Police Station that is very close to the beach access. If the station is not manned at the time you stop just call the phone number posted on the door. Someone will response in a reasonable time period. This is a significant tax revenue. No not attempt to go on the beach without this permit. The reason why there may not be an officer at the station is he or she is on the beach extracting a much larger fine for use without a permit.
