The Living Sand Dunes In North Carolina’s Jockey’s Ridge State Park Look Like Something From Another Planet
North Carolina’s most visited state park is a wild experience. So much so, it’s been described as like something from another world… or at least another continent. If you’ve yet to discover the unique living sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, then prepare for an otherworldly experience everyone in the family will treasure.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Jockey’s Ridge State Park is open year-round and admission is free. Other activities found at the park include picnicking, a park store, and – for those who have a USHPA Hang 1 or other agency-approved rating card – hang gliding from the park’s dunes! For those who aren’t experienced, hang gliding lessons are usually offered by a private vendor located near the entrance to the park.
