Fort Fisher Air Force Recreation Area (FFAFRA) is located in Kure Beach, between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, both a short walk from our accommodations. Its primary purpose is to offer recreational activities and lodging as well as training events for Department of Defense eligible groups. There are cottages and lodge rooms as well as RV, camper and tent sites for rent by authorized persons with proper DoD identification. There are also meeting rooms, a military museum and facilities available for special events, team building and official exercises. FFAFRA is Federal land, owned and managed by the United States Air Force, the Army National Guard and Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU)

Fort Fisher, “Your Place at the Beach,” is available to Active Duty Military, National Guard, Reservists, Coast Guard, Retired Military, DoD Civilians and 100% Disabled Veterans with valid DoD ID Cards. Additionally, veterans with a valid VHIC card that displays Purple Heart. Former POW or Service Connected are authorized users.

Come and see why “Ft. Fisher is One of the Military’s Best Kept Secrets.” Enjoy a carefree family vacation of fun and sun in Southeastern NC and enjoy other nearby activities. While in Kure Beach, visit the NC Aquarium, Ft. Fisher Civil War Museum, surf & pier fishing and take advantage of our large uncrowded beaches. On-site we offer the Beach House Bar & Grill, Recreational Hall, Rental Center and outdoor swimming pool.
