Camping

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT AMENITIES:

Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to see photos of campsites; check availability and fees; find out whether a specific site is wheelchair accessible, has access to water, bathouses or pit toilets, or has electric hookup; and learn other important information.

 

Backpack camping

All supplies, including water, must be packed to the sites. No site is accessible by vehicle. Before camping, please check in and register your vehicle at the park office.

Each camp has a vault toilet, and all sites include a fire ring with grill.

Family Wilderness Camp

There are five campsites just off of the Campbell Creek Loop Trail, approximately 2.5 miles from the parking lot and 0.5 mile from the river.

The maximum number of campers for each site is six.

Canoe Camp

There are six campsites along the Cape Fear River Canoe Trail and can accommodate up to six campers.

The campground is located beside the river off of the Little Creek Loop Trail, in a low-lying area. The camping area is 1.7 miles from the park office.

 

Paddle-in camping

The Canoe Camp can accommodate paddle-in camping for canoers and kayakers.

Please make a reservation prior to starting any paddling trip to assure that there is camping available.

 

NOTE – Gate access for campers:

Park gates are closed and locked at posted closing times for your protection. There will be no exiting or entering the gates after the closing time. All visitors who are not spending the night need to be out by closing time. If you leave the park and do not return before closing time, you will not be able to re-enter. Check with the park office during office hours for the after-hours emergency phone number. Please notify camp hosts for emergencies only.
