Overview

Fishing is by far the main attraction at the Pool 4 Lock and Dam area. Anglers often have luck with bass, crappie, catfish and bream, fishing either from fancy boats or casting from the riverbanks. Hunting is also a popular activity in this area, with excellent duck hunting along the waterway. For visitors looking to stay the night, Tar Camp Park has a large campground with all the typical amenities. Tar Camp Park, as well as Dam Site No. 5 park, has a picnic area, playground, and a group picnic shelter. Both Tar Camp and Wrightsville parks have public boat launch ramps.
