PARK ACCESS AREAS TO CLOSE ONCE PARKING IS FULL   

For visitor and staff safety and to prevent traffic congestion once any parking access completely fills, the access area will be closed for up to 90 minutes. Only park vehicles and emergency/law enforcement vehicles will be allowed to enter the access if it is closed.
 
Visitors planning to arrive between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. are advised to consider making alternative plans in case they arrive at a closed access area. Please refer to the North Carolina State Parks web site or alternative information sites for available options. 
 
Staff addressing multiple responsibilities, including parking management and visitor safety, may not be able to immediately respond to inquiries. 
 
Parking anywhere outside the gates is not permitted. Vehicles that do so will be towed and the owner cited.

Education

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Crowders Mountain State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

To arrange a special exploration of Crowders Mountain State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Crowders Mountain State Park have been developed for grades 5-7 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Crowders Mountain program introduces students to basic geologic concepts, including the rock cycle, rock and mineral identification, weathering and erosion, and resource use. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
