3-26-2015 - The Bridle/Corridor Trail is closed due to wet conditions. This alert will be removed when it reopens.
We are now accepting applications for a 'Park Attendant'. This position is seasonal and will last 11 months. It is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in a career in parks because it allows you to be involved in a wide variety of daily park tasks required to effectively operate a state park. If interested please complete the application found at this link http://ncparks.gov/Jobs/docs/pd107ltr.doc and submit it to the park office via mail, or in person.

Equestrians - To preserve park bridle trails for your continued use and enjoyment, all trails are closed to horses after rain. Riding on wet trails creates hazardous areas and erodes the trail. Riding trails when wet will cause their closure for maintenance and their closure to bridle use. If it has rained, wait to ride another day. DUE TO LEGAL AGREEMENT THE RAILROAD CROSSING AT THE RIVER IS CLOSED TO HORSES. DO NOT RIDE ALONG OR ACROSS THE RAILROAD.
