Things to Do

The river and creek system that runs through Camden, North Carolina, offers miles of water-based relaxation and recreation. Sawyer's Creek winds throughout the town, and those residents with boats can launch their vessels into the water at Sawyer's Creek Boat Ramp. From there the high seas adventures begin, with traveling from the creek to the Pasquotank and on into Albemarle Sound and beyond.

Lamb's Marina, located at a bend in the river, is one of the main hubs of Camden, NC. As the name suggests, local boat owners can keep their pride and joy docked at one of the 60 slips, as well as gas up and rinse down when needed. Also located in and around the marina are the town's few restaurants, serving up classic American cuisine and some fresh-caught morsels from the nearby waters. Those buying real estate in Camden will probably find themselves spending quite a bit of time around the marina, regardless of whether they own a boat.

Fans of anything old and unusual can take just a few steps from the marina to the town's antique shop, which is chock full of one-of-a-kind items ranging from furniture to toys to jewelry.
