Big Canoes

Join us for an exciting way to experience North Carolina waters

Last year, North Carolina State Parks acquired two "big canoes" to help park visitors experience our natural resources. Funded by the Friends of State Parks, these canoes can each accommodate 12 people for guided paddling programs!

Find an event below to sign up for this unique learning adventure.

Big Canoes are for school groups, too!

Teachers — want to take your class out on the big canoes for an unforgettable science lesson?
