Crowders Mountain State Park’s Linwood Access to Close for Construction

Raleigh, N.C. - The Linwood access at Crowder’s Mountain State Park will be closed beginning Sept. 9 for construction to expand and repair the parking area.  

The project, funded by the Connect N.C. bond package, will increase parking for visitors at the popular access area. The parking lot will be expanded and paved to accommodate 202 vehicles and the septic system will be updated to manage increased usage. 

The parking area will be closed until construction is complete. Park staff ask that visitors check the park’s website or call the park office for up-to-date information before their visit.
