"Cape Lookout is part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore and is protected from commercial development.................. an ideal setting for all seashore activities, whether they be picnicking, camping, scuba diving, shell collecting, or just throwing the Frisbee. North Carolina is quite fortunate to have such an accessible playground that has not succumbed to hapless commercial development, and never will."

NOTE: Cape Lookout is not an inhabited area, but it is the 'logo' of the Crystal Coast region.
