Park is Open But Flooding Still Continues   

All facilities at Carolina Beach State Park are open and fully operational, however along the Lower Cape Fear River we are experiencing higher than normal tides as floodwaters continue to work their way down stream. This means several park trails are inundated with water and may be impassable especially during high tide. Check with park staff upon arrival as to the conditions of the trails effected.

Carolina Beach State Park

With a marina providing access to some of North Carolina's best fishing spots, a secluded camping area beneath towering trees, and miles of hiking trails that traverse a variety of distinct habitats—not to mention the presence of the Venus flytrap, one of the world's most unique carnivorous plants—it's no wonder Carolina Beach State Park is a popular coastal attraction. Located in an area steeped in both history and natural diversity, the park includes a visitor's center with exhibits depicting the wonders of its environment.
