Events and Programs

Elk Knob 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.

 

Novice campers are invited to join the Rangers at Elk Knob State Park for an enjoyable night of camping on Saturday, June 29 beginning no earlier than 2:30 pm. This is the eleventh year that Elk Knob has participated in the campout which introduces families to the joy of camping without the expense of buying equipment. It is a great event for two main reasons: it allows participants a night of supervised camping at Elk Knob State Park, and we provide the tents, dinner, s'mores and interesting programs to fill the night with entertainment. Participants should bring their own snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and their own sleeping bags or blankets. The campout is free, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by June 24. You may register by calling 828-297-7261. Adults must accompany children. Children must be 6 years and older. Pets are not allowed. Don't miss a great opportunity to try camping without the expense involved. It may be the start of a new hobby for the family.
