In accordance with Executive Order 215, as well as guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, face masks are no longer required for visitors in most settings outdoors and indoors at our state parks.
We strongly encourage those who have not yet been vaccinated for COVID-19 to continue wearing masks and practicing social distancing guidelines while visiting. In addition, we strongly encourage both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors to wear a face covering in areas with large volume of children or while taking part in child-focused activities.
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.
The North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources has applied for FEMA Public Assistance Program funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) as a sub-recipient for the repair of the fishing pier at Carolina Beach State Park. Public comments are due by July 30, 2021.
