Overview

Boasting more than 50 parks and natural and recreation areas, North Carolina�s state park system offers something for everyone. Twelve million people seek sanctuary in the parks� diverse natural areas every year and learn about cultural and natural history from interpretive rangers. The state�s scenic beauty is reflected in the varied park system holdings, which range from ancient Mount Mitchell to the wind-scoured dunes of Jockey�s Ridge. As new parks are created and existing parks increase in size, the park system continually offers new opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.

North Carolina State Parks: A Niche Guide connects people to parks and is the essential companion for out-of-state visitors and North Carolinians alike. If you are interested in natural and cultural history, hiking, photography, birding, paddling, camping, or just an outing with the family, the portable full-color guidebook provides key travel information that will make every park visit educational, enjoyable, and safe.
