Again this year the park will be hosting a "Trunk or Treat" for area children and youth on Saturday, October 28.  The Seven Springs Volunteer Fire Department will also be hosting a haunted trail that guarantees to frighten!  This year's event will be held on Saturday, October 28, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the park's swim lake parking lot.  Admission is free for children in costume although there will be a nominal charge for entry onto the hanted trail ($2 ages 12 & up) and to enter the cosutme contest ($1 per entry, age categories for K-12).  Volunteers, groups, and parents who desire to feature a trunk in the event are invited to call the park office to register at 919-778-6234.  The event will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.  For more details or information, please call the park office.

Cliffs of the Neuse State Park

The site of Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, with impressive cliffs overlooking the Neuse River, has been a landmark for centuries. Five hiking trails explore the riverside habitats and their mature forests and lead to some quiet fishing spots along the waterway. A favorite facility for the local communities is an 11-acre swimming lake with a bathhouse, grass-covered lawn, sandy beach and diving platform with rental boats available. Expansive picnic grounds are nearby. The park has group campsites and a 35-site family campground. A visitor center offers museum-quality exhibits that explore the natural and cultural history of the region, complementing regular interpretive programs.
