Events and Programs

Carvers Creek State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful.

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Come one, come all! Bring your dogs, kids and friends to enjoy a leisure 3-mile jog in the park with Assistant Park Ranger Green.  Be sure to bring leashes for your dog or you will not be allowed to participate, stated by park policy. This will be a beginner’s jog so there will be plenty of water breaks and places to stop and take pictures! Please meet in front of Welcoming Center.

Park staff will be leading a historical tour through Mr. James Stillman Rockefeller's winter estate.  We will be walking through and around the estate and discussing the history of the surrounding structures, some dating back to the early 1800s.  Tours are free but YOU MUST SIGN-UP ahead of time.  You may call or come by the office to sign up. Please allow approximately 15 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the Rain Shelter.  Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel.  For more information about the tours of the Rockefeller House, please contact Carvers Creek Park Office.
