Great hiking

Backpack camping is great here. Trails are good for family and have been here numerous times and will continue to go even though we have hiked all the trails.


The sites here are great and the hike in is not bad at all. Well spaced and maintained. The vistors center is always super clean and everyone from rangers to staff are really friendly. Great spot for day or over night.

perfect for a day trip

great hiking paths, going deep into the woods. we have not camped there because they only accept tents.


Hiking in

Bring the Dog

We brought our dog on our hike. The trails are easily followed and they include long and short Trails for your enjoyment. great day trip.

Canoe camping site.

It was a pretty nice camp. They have a fire pit with grill and a place to hang and dry out stuff. The entrance was pretty steep coming off the river. There were 3 kayaks in my group ant that was tuff to drag them up. Disclaimer call ahead and make sure the boy scouts won't be the at the same time. They left all their canoes all up in down the trail you have to traverse up. There is a toilet.

Great spot

Great trails for hiking! The park is really well maintained. There is a ranger station with water fountains and clear bathrooms. There also is an outhouse by the campgrounds. The campsites are pretty big, we were able to fit a 3 person and 2 person tent no problem. You can't bring your own fire wood and can't cut trees down for firewood so you can't really get a great firing going. The hike out is awesome, you follow the river all the way back to the parking lot. The hike was a little for strenuous than we thought it was going to be! We had a great time!

Day Trip

Great day hiking trails with some nice river scenery.

Many Fun Camping Experiences

Spent many nights camping at Raven Rock. There are quite a few different campsites to choose from. There is the group site which accommodates a large group. The Canoe camp site is for the person brave enough to challenge the mighty Cape Fear River. There are also a few campsites further from the parking area. The trails are great for day hikes also. You can also swim in the Fish Traps, which is a unique cluster of rocks on the river. This place is must visit if you are ever in the Sandhills of NC.

Great Rustic Camping and Canoe Camping

This is a very rustic campground. There are only 6 campsites which you have to trek almost 2 miles into the woods to get to. We had a blast, but this is definitely not car camping. So be prepared. No rolling coolers or wheeled carts of any kind. Everything must come on you back. We always have an awesome time when we come here and we come often.
