Due to conditions beyond our control, in most cases using the park's address in any brand of vehicle GPS unit will not give you directions to the central park area, U.S. Hwy 221 access. This location is misidentified on the master map that these units use to pinpoint addresses. Instead, we suggest using either the actual GPS coordinates, 36.467680,-81.340350, or the following address exactly as typed: 10000 U.S. 221, Laurel Springs, NC 28644
