Scheduled events

Medoc Mountain 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.


Meet at the Picnic Shelter to make a pumpkin bird feeder for your backyard! There will be a presentation with a Park Ranger about common songbirds here at Medoc Mountain State Park with a fun learning game!
