NC MST Neuse Paddle Segment Shuttle Service & Trips

The Neuse River from Falls Dam all the way to the Neusiok Trail in the Croatan National Forest is the designated NC Mountains to Sea Trail Neuse River Trail. To help folks complete this paddle trail section of the NCMST we offer a Basic Shuttle Service (for those with their own boats and equipment), and a Full Service Shuttle (for those that need us to provide boats and equipment). This NC paddle trail offers over 200 miles of potential overnight options ranging from 1 night to 2 weeks or more. Take a look below to check out our numerous shuttle options and pricing.

Full Service for take-outs between Smithfield and Kinston

The Full Service Trip Shuttle is for self-guided overnight paddlers who need to have Frog Hollow provide boats and paddling equipment when utilizing any access between downtown Smithfield and Kinston Neuseway Nature Park as a take-out. There is approximately 100 miles of river between Smithfield and Kinston with numerous access points. While we are always happy to give some pointers, insight and basic advice, participants will need to study and plan their own trip. To help with this take a look at the NC Mountains to Sea Trail website, specifically the "Segments 11-16:Falls Lake Dam to Neusiok Trail" section links. Another really great resource is Paul Ferguson's book Paddlers Guide to Eastern NC.

What we offer with the Full Service Trip Shuttle is to meet you on a designated date at the put-in of your choosing to drop off boats and equipment.  At the end of your trip we will meet you, on a designated date, at the take out of your choice to shuttle you back to the put-in and your vehicle.

Frog Hollow will provide the following: canoes or kayaks, paddles, lifejackets, and 2 small dry bags per person. We can provide tents, sleeping pads, and additional dry bags for an additional fee. For every 1-3 people this typically costs around $25-$50 depending on your groups needs and numbers of nights out.

Dates and trip details must be coordinated via phone or email with the Frog Hollow office before online registration can be made. We will typically need at least 1 week notice to coordinate this service.  Basic Service is subject to availability of staff and shuttle vehicles. Any necessary camping permits or permissions are the responsibility of the trip participants, not Frog Hollow Outdoors.

For groups of 11 or more please contact us for pricing.
