Events and Programs

Lumber River State Park 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.


Start a new New Year's Day tradition.  After you eat your greens for prosperity and black-eyed peas for good luck, come to Lumber River State Park for a healthy, educational, fun hike on Griffin's Bluff and along the banks of the river.  Make this your first hike of many in 2018 at Lumber River and other beautiful parks in our state and country.  This hike will last about an hour as we walk about a half a mile, stopping to look for the birds and animals that make the park and river their home during winter. Tips for better wildlife viewing will be offered.  Dress for the weather and bring binoculars, if desired, to have a better view of interesting sightings.  Call the park office at (910) 628-4564 for more information on this program or other places to take your First Hike.  If you can't make this hike, start a new tradition and go hiking somewhere on New Year's Day.
