*** Paddlers Alert ***   

There is a full blockage on Little Fishing Creek at the mouth of the Bear Swamp Creek.  The exact location is: 36.25784, -77.88398 or approximately 1,000 feet downstream from Medoc State Park Road.  Portaging around the blockage will be very difficult to almost impossible.  Paddlers are encouraged to carry their canoes or kayaks over the foot bridge from the Discovery Loop to the Dam Site Loop and enter the creek there.  Park staff may be able to assist with transporting canoes or kayaks to this location if arrangements are made prior to arriving at the park.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Medoc Mountain State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information. To arrange a special exploration of Medoc Mountain State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Medoc Mountain State Park have been developed for grades 4-6 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Medoc Mountain program introduces students to basic geologic processes and relates them to the Medoc Mountain region. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
