So I will be heading to the Outer Banks specifically Corolla in a few months with a bunch of family. I would love to be able to introduce the Nieces and Nephews and my kiddos to Shark Teeth / Fossil hunting. Kids will be ranging in age from 8 yrs to 3 months old and about 10 of them. SO I am looking for some recommendations on spots that are closer to the northern Outer Banks ie Corolla... Key factors include: Distance/Time to arrive at location Easy of finding goodies Potential for bathrooms(not a deal breaker) Other attractions in the area. I have been recommended so far: Aurora Fossil Museum including Fossil pit Shark Tooth Island Top Sail Beach Onslow Beach (Acess is not a problem) South Beach Colonial Beach Westmorland State Park York River state park Matoaka Lake ( I have this listed I cannot find who told me thou) Colonial Park Fossil pit on Roanoke Island Currently Colonial Park Fossil Pit is winning due to fufilling most of the requirements... Could anyone please share their thought on these locations for the above described scenario? Does anyone one know how successful the Fossil Pit on Roanoke Island is? I did call the park and it is still there but hasn't got new material since last summer.(probably won't by the time I get there also) We don't need to find record breaking fossils tiny or common is ok as long as the success rate is pretty high. I can source plenty of hand tools for them to use and am currently building atleast 10 kiddo sized screens in 1/4 and 1/2 inch screen so they all will have one to use then take home. Can anyone recommend some kiddo specific gear I also might want to line up? Thanks!
