Medoc Mountain State Park

1541 Medoc State Park Road

Serenity seems to pervade Medoc Mountain State Park, enhanced by gentle Fishing Creek and a scenic open meadow that spreads from the picnic grounds. Anglers and paddlers are drawn to Fishing Creek—considered to be one of the cleanest streams in the region—that flows for about 2.5 miles through the park. Some of the park’s ten miles of hiking trails wander along the creek; others climb several hundred feet to the upper reaches of Medoc Mountain. Roughly ten miles of bridle trails and trailhead parking serve equestrians. The 34-site campground has RV-friendly sites and bathhouse, and warm-weather group camp facilities are nearby. Rangers offer free interpretive programs and hikes.

Medoc Mountain is a great little park and hidden gem in the state park system, about 1.5 hours from Raleigh. There is a campground, 10 miles of hiking trails, mountain biking trails, equestrian trails, and access to Little Fishing Creek for canoeing and fishing. The highlight of the park is Medoc Mountain, an unusual peak towering above the bubbling creeks. At 325 feet, above sea level, it's hardly a mountain. But the hike up Summit Loop Trail is surprisingly steep. The summit is forested so no sweeping vistas, but there are benches for a rest and tree identification signs. Overall, a great place to get away and enjoy time in nature.

Great place for hiking. We visited with a group of science educators and the Park rangers did an awesome job with giving us background and showing us to the “summit”. We hiked the Discovery Loop Trail and it was about a 2 mile trial. I’ll definitely be back with my family.

Hiking, biking and horse riding is very good. Water travel is not advised due to the large number of fallen trees. Well appointed camp sites with shower house.

Nice little hidden gem an hour or so from Raleigh. Great quiet campground compared to the city!

Very family oriented. We had a great time. Hiking trails were maintained and the bathrooms were clean.
