At Camp Lejeune’s back door, on the New River, is the two-centuries-old fishing community of Sneads Ferry. Each August, the community celebrates its fishing heritage with the Shrimp Festival.
Sneads Ferry is famous for its wonderful seafood restaurants. The hardiness of the commercial fishermen can be seen at Fulcher’s Landing, where commercial fishermen bring in their catch. Sneads Ferry also boasts one of the finest golf courses in the area.
