Park facilities are re-opened. Many trees down in the river.   

All of the facilities at Lumber River's three access areas at Princess Ann, Chalk Banks, and The Wire Pasture are re-opened.
There are many trees down in the river from the hurricane.  All sections of the river probably have many dozens of new trees across the river.  Some sections likely have over a hundred new trees in the river.  Park staff will provide updates of any sections that are in good shape for boating.

Lumber River State Park

On a national wild and scenic river, Lumber River State Park is all about eastern North Carolina paddling, fishing and exquisite scenery. The Princess Ann and Chalk Banks access areas anchor two ends of the riverine park, with tent-friendly campgrounds, group campsites, picnic grounds and short hiking trails at both. Possibilities for kayaking and canoeing are extraordinary, but require careful planning due to fluctuating water levels and hazards. There have been 24 possible float trips identified along this blackwater river, ranging from one hour to about half a day. Pier and riverbank fishing is available for black crappie, largemouth bass, catfish and panfish. The park’s interpretive programs regularly include paddling and fishing excursions.
