The Curtis Perry Public Park, which is also referred to as the Taylor’s Creek Boat Ramp, is one of the most popular launching areas for local and visiting Beaufort mariners. Located on the edge of Lennoxville Road and Front Street on the eastern edge of the downtown area, this site is an accommodating destination for water fans of all varieties.

The Curtis Perry Public Park features four launch lanes on the edge of Taylor’s Creek, as well as ample parking for vehicles with trailers. (Additional parking for vehicles without trailers is found nearby along Front Street as well.) In addition to the instant water access, the park also features public restrooms, a small dock that stretches out into the creek, and a small picnic area for visitors who want to relax and enjoy the view. A great destination for kayaks, canoes, and motorized vessels, from this launching site, vessels can easily cut across the creek to the Rachel Carson Reserve, or take a longer expedition through the Back Sound to reach the Shackleford Banks and the Cape Lookout National Seashore. As a result, it’s a great and central destination for the waves of summer visitors who want to enjoy Beaufort’s life on the water.
