Due to the onset of below freezing nightly temperatures, we have had to close the upper campground washhouse (central to sites 1-40) in the family campground. The lower washhouse (central to sites 43-73) will remain open until Monday, December 2, when it too will close for the season. A frost-free water faucet will remain turned on near the lower washhouse throughout the winter months.Last updated on: Tuesday, November 19, 2019
Hanging Rock State Park
Since its creation as a 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps project, Hanging Rock State Park has offered the best of a traditional outdoor experience with 73-site campground, picnic grounds, stocked lake for swimming and canoe rentals and more than 20 miles of hiking trails that climb onto spectacular views and weave alongside clear streams and waterfalls. There is also access on the Dan River for paddling, 8.4 miles of mountain biking trails and rock climbing opportunities with permit. A complex of vacation cabins is available for longer visits. Free interpretive programs complement the education offerings of a park museum that explores the natural and cultural history of the Sauratown Mountains.
