About the Division of Parks & Recreation

From the mountains to the coast, the Division of Parks and Recreation administers a diverse system of state parks, natural areas, trails, lakes, natural and scenic rivers and recreation areas.

The division also supports and assists other recreation providers by administering grant programs for park and trail projects, and by offering technical advice for park and trail planning and development. The Division administers the North Carolina Trails System, North Carolina Natural and Scenic Rivers, and the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund.
