Black River Kayaking was formed in 2014 to create awareness of a great natural resource in Sampson County, NC. The Black River begins in northern Sampson County and flows southward to the Cape Fear River above Wilmington. Due to articles in Our State Magazine, other publications, and good 'ole word of mouth, many people have expressed interest in experiencing the Black River Magic. No it is not haunted, but the Black River will transport you back in time. Much of what you will see is just how it would have been seen hundreds of years ago.
