This Is The Newest State Park In North Carolina And It’s Incredible

State Parks are a beautiful way to explore all the natural beauty our state has to offer. North Carolina State Park system includes 36 state parks, four state recreation areas and two state natural areas available to the public.

From high up in the mountains, to sprawling coastal marshes, our state parks encompass the diverse landscape that makes the Tar Heel state home. Open since 2013, Carvers Creek State Park is the newest addition. While the opening was a bit slow, today, the park is a beautiful place to spend a day.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
