Scheduled events

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.

 

Carvers Creek State Park has partnered with the Spring Lake Library to bring you Carvers Creek Pollywogs. This month we will be reading and learning about Campfire Safety. The curriculum for this program is for Preschool and younger but siblings are always welcome. We will meet in front of the Welcome 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.
