Croatan N.F./Green Swamp?

Post by MCHerper » March 6th, 2018, 8:59 am

We're going to be visiting Croatan National Forest and the Green Swamp Preserve in April and it's our first time there (father-sons trip!). We were going to do the trail walk at Green Swamp with emphasis on carnivorous plants and also walk some of the trails in Croatan. If anyone has any advice for us regarding herping at either location it would be very much appreciated (and if you ask us to keep it confidential we will)! Thank you for any help that you can offer!

We did a NAFHA trip to Croatan not too long ago (ok, a few years.) As I recall, it was nice because no one method was "the best" - we found stuff hiking, cruising, flipping, etc. - So I'd say just have some fun and keep your eyes peeled! Sorry I don't recall any more specifics.
