Raven Rock State Park

3009 Raven Rock Road

The Cape Fear River is the frequent hiking destination for visitors entering Raven Rock State Park, whether it’s Lanier Falls, the Fish Traps rapids or the massive Raven Rock, an ageless landmark for river travelers. Along the way, hikers will experience steep terrain, mountain laurel and rhododendron thickets and tumbling creeks. The park offers primitive backcountry camping areas for families, groups and paddlers; all supplies must be carried in, but the solitude is worth the effort. A separate equestrian area on the river’s north bank offers extensive trails and a large parking area. Frequent interpretive programs complement museum-quality exhibits in the visitor center exploring the Cape Fear region’s cultural and natural history.

I have been going to Raven Rock since I moved here in 1993. It is hard for me to realize that some local residents have never even visited here. Hiking trails, Horse trails and a bike trail that opened in September. There are two more levels of bike trails in progress. There are short hikes and longer ones. Have you been to the waterfalls or to the fish traps? You can fish at Raven Rock. Some camping is available, but more camping is planned. Visit the displays including an arrowhead collection. Cost: Your time!

Beautiful! If you go to the rock be prepared to go up and down lots of steps!! The prettiest place around for sure. Visitor center was extremely welcoming and helpful.

I love the outdoors. I went to the visitor center and the lady was very informative except for telling me the distances I would have to walk to see everything. I seen it had fishing but it's very very dangerous for someone to trek alone.
