Raven Rock State Park »  Current Conditions
In further efforts to reduce wildfire hazards and restore some areas of the native species within the park, park staff are planning prescribed burns for the first part of 2014. Prescription burns are very weather dependent and may take place with very short notice. Due to the presence of fire, smoke, or emergency equipment; roads, picnic areas, and trails may be temporarily closed to the public. If you have plans to visit the park as part of an event or with a group, please contact the park a few days in advance.

... details ±
Due to excessive flooding and the Cape Fear River currently at 13.41 feet and rising, one trail and portions of other trails in Raven Rock State Park are closed.
Creek side of Little Creek Loop Trail closed; creek side of Campbell Creek Loop Trail closed; and Group Camp Trail closed. The upper portions of Campbell Creek Loop Trail and Little Creek Loop Trail are still available for hiking but will no longer be loops and hikers will need to back track to trail head. Canoe Camp remains open by access of upper portion of Little Creek Loop Trail and Group Camp is open but with a reroute.
The Bridle Trails are currently CLOSED. To preserve the bridle trails for future enjoyment, bridle trails are closed following major rainfall events. Riding on wet trails creates hazardous conditions, erodes the trail and will cause for more frequent and longer trail closures due to major trail repairs.
Portions of the West Loop Bridle Trail nearest River Road have been re-routed to complete the loop on the west side of Avent’s Creek using the trailhead opposite the vault toilet. Do not ride on portions of the trail that are marked as closed.
Raven Rock State Park has created a list serve for updates on the East and West Loop Bridle Trails. These updates will only be sent when the trail status changes. If you are interested in receiving emails of bridle trail status changes please call the park office and leave your preferred email address at 910-893-4888 extension 107 or email email@example.com
