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
Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Falls Lake and its aquatic environment. Check the Events calendar for more information.
To arrange a special exploration of Falls Lake State Recreation Area for your group or class, contact the park office.
Educational materials about Falls Lake have been developed for grades 3-5 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Falls Lake program focuses on the food chain. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
