Stop by the park office for a quick look and the skins and skulls of various animals that call Elk Knob home. A ranger will be there to discuss and answer questions.
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.
Enjoy a day filled with live music, games, wagon rides, craft, and cultural demonstrations, hands-on activities, history and food! Please bring a dish of food to share and join us between 11 am and 3 pm for our 15th Annual Elk Knob Headwaters Community Day sponsored by the Elk Knob Community Heritage Organization (EKCHO, Inc.). Please note that if you are interested in participating in the potluck, you should bring a dish of food to share and plan to be at the park by noon.
