There is still construction going on at the Dam. It is getting closer to the completion of the Walking bridge that goes over the Dam. I know we can not wait to be able to utilize the new bridge. We are in the process of clearing more of the area between the Dam and Campsite 4 on the Lakeshore Trail. So once the Walkway is complete everyone will be able to cross over and have access to the park. Unfortunetly Golf carts will not have access to the bridge, it will be for walking only, even bicycles will need to be walked accross the bridge.Posted on: Thursday, April 19, 2018
There are no entrance fees to enjoy the park. In addition to park-specific rules, please read the systemwide Park Rules for all North Carolina State Parks.
Event permits. Some events—such as weddings, athletic contests, company parties, etc.—may require a Special Activity Permit. If you're unsure whether such a permit is necessary for your event, call the park office beforehand. You can download a Special Activity permit application or obtain one from the park office.
Research and collection permits. A permit is required for any project involving the collection, removal or disturbance of any natural or cultural resource of any state park unit and for projects that require placing monitoring equipment in any state park unit. Learn more about research and collection permits or fill out a permit application online.
A $25 fee will be charged for all returned checks.
