Lumber River State Park

On a national wild and scenic river, Lumber River State Park is all about eastern North Carolina paddling, fishing and exquisite scenery. The Princess Ann and Chalk Banks access areas anchor two ends of the riverine park, with tent-friendly campgrounds, group campsites, picnic grounds and short hiking trails at both. Possibilities for kayaking and canoeing are extraordinary, but require careful planning due to fluctuating water levels and hazards. There have been 24 possible float trips identified along this blackwater river, ranging from one hour to about half a day. Pier and riverbank fishing is available for black crappie, largemouth bass, catfish and panfish. The park’s interpretive programs regularly include paddling and fishing excursions.
