Raven Rock State Park

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.
