Welcome to Tyrrell County
 
iscover this natural treasure not far from the bustling outer banks of North Carolina. Tyrrell County's 390 square miles offer a diversity of rich habitats that you can explore in  peace and quiet. The only mainland population of red wolves in the wild lives here along with 28 groups of protected red-cockaded woodpeckers. Flocks of tundra swans, geese and ducks numbering in the tens of thousands, many neotropical migratory birds, turkey, bobcat, black bear, alligators, deer, the largest Atlantic white cedar trees in North Carolina, rare plants and more live here.

Walking paths, boardwalks, paddle trails, land and water-based camping sites, bike trails and lookout posts offer peaceful spots to photograph the great outdoors or just observe nature's diversity. You may not see a red wolf, bobcat or alligator, but they’re there…and just sharing their home territory is exciting!  Enhance this educational and fun experience by taking part in a red wolf howling or a wildlife workshop. Check out our Things to Do and plan your trip today!
