Family Campground Closed   

The family campground is closed for reservations and walk-ins due to construction. The bath house is being renovated this year; after completion the bath house will be ADA compliant and feature separate family, men's and women's facilities. Staff will update this alert once the family campground reopens. 

Group camping will remain available through the year, but campers will not have access to showers and must bring water with them.

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, a 32-site family campground, and 3 reservable cabins. A visitor center offers museum-quality exhibits that explore the natural and cultural history of the region, complementing regular interpretive programs.
