Land in Roberson sits on the border of South Carolina and is bordered by the North Carolina counties of Cumberland, Bladen, Columbus, Scotland and Hoke. The 951-square-mile county is home to 130,625 residents, 38% of whom are self-identified as Native Americans from the state-recognized Lumbee Tribe. Located on the Coastal Plain, the local economy is based on farming and manufacturing. Farming activities occupy 263,740 acres, and livestock and poultry are 73% of agricultural sales. Woodlands account for 14% of the acreage and cropland 81%. Included in the top employers of the county are Mountaire Farms of NC, Inc. and Campbell Soup Supply Co., LLC. Lumber River State Park is popular with campers, hikers, paddlers and fishermen who catch crappie, bass, catfish and panfish. Hunters go after deer, turkeys, doves and occasionally wild hogs. There also is waterfowl hunting, and some farmers make impoundments out of a portion of their fields. Archaeological excavations have found continuous occupation of the region by various cultures of indigenous peoples since the last Ice Age.
