Explore Downtown

Moratoc Park

This beautiful .18-acre, county-owned park on the Roanoke River is located in Williamston, North Carolina and features a river overlook, fishing pier and canoe/kayak launch.  This is the site of the original wharf of Williamston, where goods were shipped in and out.


Roanoke River

North Carolina has a rich history, and the Roanoke River has played a significant role in it for centuries. It has been a vital resource since the days when Native Americans inhabited the area and continued to be important during the colonial era when trading goods was prevalent. Even during the Civil War, the river remained significant.  The lush green trees that adorn the Roanoke River's riverbanks make it a breathtakingly beautiful spot that showcases North Carolina's charm. Here are some potential reasons you may want to explore the Roanoke River



Paddling the Roanoke River can be a fun recreational activity, whether you’re looking to take a leisurely float down the river or challenge yourself with more technical paddling on rapids and shoals. There are also opportunities for camping and fishing along the river.


With easy to navigate and rent camping platforms along the Roanoke River, you can easily make a weekend getaway a trip to remember. Camp under the stars and experience the sounds of the Roanoke in recently updated platforms and cabins along the river. Book through Roanoke River Partners website.



The Roanoke River is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including river otters, beavers, turtles, and a variety of fish species. Bird watchers may also enjoy spotting bald eagles, ospreys, and other bird species that call the river home.

Skewarkee Rail Trail

If you’re looking for a great biking and walking trail in Downtown Williamston, look no further than The Skewarkee Trail! This beautiful trail, which used to be a part of the Atlantic Coastline Railway, stretches for 0.93 miles and connects historic Downtown Williamston to the Roanoke River. Once you reach the river, you can access two amazing river parks: Moratoc Park and River Landing. These parks offer various amenities for outdoor enthusiasts, such as a picnic shelter, a 500-foot boardwalk along the river, an NC Wildlife boat launch, and a kayak launch.


But that’s not all - the Town of Williamston has even bigger plans for the Skewarkee Trail! We’re currently working on connecting the existing boardwalk to Moratoc Park, opening up even more outdoor adventure opportunities. The estimated cost for this project is $1,010,000, but the Town has already secured funding from the state and the Recreational Trails Program grant. We received $730,000 from the state in 2022 and $100,000 from the grant in April 2023. And just recently, they were approved for an additional $180,000 for a Rural Transformation grant in June of 2023 to cover the remaining cost of the project
