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!
Great day hiking trails with some nice river scenery.
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.
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.
We hiked in from the parking lot too one of the canoe in sites on the river. I loved all the trails, mainly the one that goes from the campsite I was on to the river where thereally is natural waterslide. This is a very pretty state Park, OK to hike with children. I brought both of mine but we do a lot of primitive camping. So we are used to different terrain, and no bathrooms.
There are some great hikes on the loop trails that run along the Cape Fear River. Raven Rock itself is pretty cool and worth the hike.
