Events and Programs

Raven Rock State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.


Join a Park Ranger as we celebrate National TRACK Trails Day by exploring the American Beech TRACK Trail at Raven Rock State Park! National TRACK Trails Day is a celebration of a commitment to engaging families and children with the outdoors through Kids in Parks. For 10 years, Kids in Parks has connected kids and families to the nation’s public lands via their TRACK Trails, with the mission to encourage children and parents to improve wellness by turning to nature and “unplugging” from the distractions of modern life. People and parks benefit from when people use them, and stronger connections between children and our parks will cultivate stewards who will understand the value of our public lands. Meet at the Picnic Shelter!
