Holly Shelter Creek (also known as Shelter Creek) begins in Onslow County, just over the northeast border of Pender County. It is a small blackwater stream with a large beaver population in the headwaters, and a small tidal influence near its confluence with the Northeast Cape Fear River. A trip here at low water took 6 hours. A high water level is recommended to help paddle over beaver dams and downed trees. Cattails, aquatic plants, cypress trees, and beaver dams make for interesting viewing.
