Members also receive access to the adjacent recreational facility where the whole family can kick back and relax while enjoying multiple swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis courts, a children’s playground, and activity rooms.


The marina is centrally located on the Neuse River, off the Pamlico Sound and the North Carolina Intracoastal, with easy access to many boating destinations and amenities. Just six miles north is the historic, Inner Banks town of New Bern and across the Sound is the infamous Outer Banks. Northwest Creek Marina welcomes boaters from all over the Carolinas as well as ICW travelers. The waterfront area has picturesque shops, restaurants and nightlife activities. Watersports, sailing and fishing are huge draws to the Northwest Creek Marina area, with kayak, paddleboard and charter opportunities nearby.


Oasis Marinas will oversee the day-to-day operations, facility maintenance, boat services, marketing and more at Northwest Creek Marina.
