Events and Programs

Fort Fisher State Recreation Area 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.


Be prepared to be scared with this Friday night Haunted Trail through the spooky live oaks at the secluded Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. This guided tour is offered for those brave enough to come face to face with scary legends of the past along the maritime forest trail.

This is not for younger children (Ages 10+), the faint of heart or furry friends (dogs are always welcome on the beach area).

Come if you dare!

Price:  Free with donations suggested.
