Carvers Creek State Park

Although in the early stages of development, amenities at Carvers Creek State Park now center on Long Valley Farm, the historic retreat of a Rockefeller family member.  A mile and 3/4th of trails reveals a 100-acre millpond, fed in turn by one of the state’s westernmost cypress streams and wetlands. Easy trails wind along native grass meadows, through longleaf pine forests, and along the lovely millpond with a dramatic view from a floating observation deck. Fishing in the millpond is a popular activity, though private boats are not permitted. Along with regular interpretive programs, rangers lead occasional tours through the vacation home of the late James Stillman Rockefeller who bequeathed the property for conservation. More recreation opportunities are being planned for the park that encompasses more than 4,000 acres.
