All park areas have reopened after the high lake levels after Hurricane Florence. Several low-lying areas are still partially flooded however, including the parts of the swim beaches and areas close to the shoreline. Park visitors entering the water should take care as unusual underwater drop-offs may still exist.
Sandling Beach is closed for the winter season as normal. It will reopen April 1, 2019.Posted on: Friday, October 5, 2018
Check the reservations website for availability and prices.
In addition to campsites, you can reserve the following facilities at this park:
Located next to the boat ramp in the Rolling View recreation area, the Community Building has a large meeting room, kitchen facilities, restrooms and a gas fireplace. It accommodates 70 people with chairs and tables, or 120 people with chairs only. It is near a boat ramp, beach, and hiking trails. The building may be occupied between 9 a.m. and a half hour before park closing. Note: Pig cookers must be kept on grass.
Reservable shelters are available at Sandling Beach, Rolling View and Beaverdam. All the shelters are handicap accessible and have access to drinking water and restrooms.
Unreserved picnic shelters are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. However, the shelters are very popular, so reservations are strongly suggested.
