The water storage tanks in Sandling Beach will be replaced this Fall and will require the water to be turned off and park to be closed.
Therefore the park will close for the season 2 weeks early starting Sept 18.
The main park office will closed on Saturdays and Sundays through 2017. The office will however be open holiday weekends for visitor assistance. When closed, you may go to one of our park entrance stations for assistance.Posted on: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 11:10am
Get plant and animal checklists at the park office.
A wide variety of plants and animals can be found throughout Falls Lake. Colorful wildflowers including tick-seed sunflowers, butterfly weeds and asters can be found nestled next to a number of oak species and loblolly pines. White-tailed deer, rabbit, red fox and raccoon are some of the most common forms of wildlife. Bluebirds, goldfinches and wrens sing in the trees, as wood ducks and mallards gently paddle in the nearby water. Soaring in the sky overhead are birds of prey including the red-tailed hawk, osprey and bald eagle. The calls of the great-horned, barred and screech owls fill the night air.
