State Park - North Carolina
Pettigrew State Park is located in Tyrrell and Washington Counties, North Carolina. It is around the shore lines of Lake Phelps and the Scuppernong River. The park's developed facilities are south of U.S. Route 64 near Roper and Creswell. Pettigrew State Park is open for year-round recreation, including hiking, camping, fishing, boating and picnicking. Lake Phelps is one of the oldest lakes in the eastern United States and a former hunting and fishing ground for the Algonquian peoples. Archaeologists have found dugout canoes in the lake that are up to 4,400 years old, preserved by its unusually clean waters.
