Option 1: IN PERSON

The quickest way to purchase a gift card is to visit a North Carolina state park visitor center or office.

You can find our full list of state parks and their contact information here.

Please call the park prior to your visit to make sure that they have them available in stock, especially during the holiday season when they are very popular.


Option 2: BY MAIL

If you cannot visit a state park to purchase a gift card, you can purchase one from our Raleigh administrative office by mail.

We accept only personal checks for gift card purchases by mail.
