Enjoy the beautiful beach line of the Gulf of Mexico when you visit the Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. This 1,640 acre park is teeming with wildlife, and is home to a variety of different habitats, perfect for wildlife viewing. From the beach to freshwater coastal dune lakes, longleaf pine forests to wetlands, Topsail has something for everyone. Enjoy 3.2 miles of white sand beach right on the Gulf of Mexico. Swim in the emerald green water, or try your hand at fishing. Saltwater fishing is a popular activity at Topsail. You could catch a pompano, or a king mackerel. Or head on over to the freshwater dune lakes and see if you can catch a bass or freshwater catfish. Fishing not your thing? Visitors are also able to kayak or paddleboard on the water.
