How to Purchase a Gift Card

The quickest way to purchase a gift card is to visit a North Carolina state park visitor center or office.

Please call the park prior to your visit to make sure that they have them available in stock, especially during the holiday season when they are very popular.

If you cannot visit a state park in person to purchase a gift card, you can purchase one from our Raleigh office by mail.

At this time, we do not have an online ordering system for gift cards. As an alternative, you can purchase a North Carolina State Parks Annual Pass from our webstore. The annual passes cover reservoir entrance fees, equipment rentals, and swimming passes, but not camping or facility reservation fees.
