The initial goal is to reach Wilmington, NC by the route that suites your needs the best. We have below a map of North Carolina that focuses on the eastern half of the state.
Primary routes for getting to Wilmington NC are I-40 East ans US17 North or South. There are ample signs in Wilmington for Ft. Fisher and are easy to follow.
They actually refer to the Fort Fisher State Park but the Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation area is on the same route and about 2 miles up from the State Park.
The route through Wilmington is straight through to Carolina Beach, then Kure Beach. Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area is in the Kure Beach Community. For additional directional support we suggest going to www.mapquest.com
We have provided a “zoomed in” map of the Wilmington, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach areas. Primary roads to Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area are shown as is the location of the Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area entrance.
Once inside Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area continue straight in past the flag pole, around a slight curve and then you will see a directional sign pointing the way to our Reception Center
