We are located on the Contentnea Creek. Come and enjoy some fishing, canoeing, or kayaking in one of our two boat ramps. Recently, repairs were made to the boat ramp at Daughtry's Boat Landing and Wildlife's boat ramp. Also we have Caswell's Landing; a walking trail is located there where you can enjoy the beauty of the creek and nature, perfect for you. The boat landing is located on the north side of town across from Mt. Calvary Church.
If you are looking for a place for you to relax and enjoy come to Hookerton and get the a piece of beauty and peace that this place can give you!!!
Hookerton is home to one of more than 750 Civil War sites in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. Our Civil War Trails marker is located on Main street (Hwy 123). Bridges here and nearby over Contentnea Creek and Little Contentnea Creek were important to the movement of troops and supplies in this area. Potter set fire to the Hookertown Bridge after crossing it on his way back to New Bern July 21. This small town was also headquarters for Confederate Gen. James Pettigrew after his attempt to recapture New Bern failed in April 1863.
