I visit the Carolina Beach State Park several days a week, it is a great place to walk and enjoy nature I usually see deer on most of my walks. Squirrels are often spotted along with a few Owls, Hawks. Some caution should be used in the summer months, there are some venomous snakes in the park. Just keep your eyes scanning the trails most snakes except the Copper Head will move of the trail when they hear you coming.
