Visit A Submerged Enchanted Forest At Merchants Millpond State Park In North Carolina
Whether you grew up in the Tar Heel State or are a frequent visitor, you’re likely already smitten by the state’s enchanting side, where powerful waterfalls pour down the sides of mountains, breathtaking beaches sprinkle the entire coast with beautiful escapes, and layers of mountains blanket the landscape with sheets of graduating colors. But there’s more, much more – including an enchanted and submerged forest of ancient trees that sits at the focal point of one of North Carolina’s most underappreciated state parks.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Learn more with a visit to the official website for North Carolina State Parks. The park is open year round, with hours that very by season. Hours are posted on the website. Admission is free.
