Lake Tillery Drawdown   

On October 22, Duke Energy plans to start lowering Lake Tillery 6-8 feet. The lake will remain at a low level from Oct. 29 - Nov. 16. When the water levels drop below the boat ramp, the boat ramp will be closed to motorboats. Canoe and kayak launching will still be permitted from the lake-shore but water may not be navigable. Please plan accordingly.

Trail Closures   

Several hiking trails remain closed from recent storm damages including hazardous trees, flooding, trail washouts and bridge washouts.  Bridle Trails are unsafe and closed until further notice due to severe damage to the trail surface from heavy rainfall during Hurricane Florence.  Staff are working hard to remove hazards and make necessary repairs.

Research and collection permits. A permit is required for any project involving the collection, removal or disturbance of any natural or cultural resource of any state park unit and for projects that require placing monitoring equipment in any state park unit. Learn more about research and collection permits or fill out a permit application online.
