Carvers Creek State Park

Amenities at the relatively new Carvers Creek State Park have centered on Long Valley Farm, the historic retreat of a Rockefeller family member, as the park continues to develop recreation opportunities. However, a dramatic flood in September 2016 severely damaged a dam and 100-acre millpond that is a significant park feature. Fishing in the millpond, views from the floating observation deck and some trail opportunities are temporarily interrupted as repairs are being made. The farm continues to offer scenic, contemplative hiking through longleaf pine forests, and rangers lead regular interpretive programs, including occasional tours through the vacation home of the late James Stillman Rockefeller, who bequeathed the property for conservation. A long-range master plan includes varied recreation proposals for the park that encompasses more than 4,000 acres.
 


Notices and alerts
 

Now hiring

Carvers Creek State Park is currently accepting applications for a seasonal General Utility Worker.
 

Horse trails information

The Sandhills parking lot and some sections of the multi-use trails have crush-and-run rock where trail tends to be wet, so boots or shoes are suggested for horses.

Please do not take your horse off-trail as this can damage the fragile longleaf pine ecosystem and habitats.
