CAROLINA BEACH, N.C. -- Tents, cars, and campers line Freeman Park as the summer camping season kicks off in Carolina Beach.
Park rangers said they typically don't have any trouble on the north end of Freeman Park where people set up camp, but they do want vacationers to keep a few rules in mind.
Campers are allowed to have camp fires, but they must use a fire pit and natural fire wood.
They are also asked to leave glass containers at home and be cautious when driving on the beach.
"Keep your eye on your kids if you are camping. Watch the fires, that kind of thing, because you can do bonfires out here and stuff," said Wilmington resident Eric Coble. "Keep it in a container, you know, that kind of thing. But just enjoy it. It is nice out here."
A day pass at Freeman Park is $20.
A yearly pass costs $100 and expires Dec. 31.
