Astronomy Viewing

Ever wonder what happens at Medoc Mountain State Park after dark? Well, because it is one of the premier locations in North Carolina to observe the night sky... a number of amateur astronomers commonly meet on the field by the Picnic Shelter and enjoy everything the Milky Way has to offer with their telescopes. Come join the experts in the field and let them show you the amazing sights! We'll see stars, other galaxies, and planets up close and personal... and you'll learn to appreciate a new aspect of nature! This program is weather dependent and could be canceled with little to no notice,  Call the park office at 252-586-6588 for more details on this FREE program!
