About the Park

Map of North Carolina with a star indicating the location of Haw River State Park

Located in Guilford and Rockingham counties 15 miles north of Greensboro, Haw River State Park is a unique park that centers on The Summit, a residential environmental education and conference center, accommodating retreats and conferences for groups big or small. The park is also perfect for day-use visitors looking to explore the headwaters of the Haw River. Trails and a boardwalk offer a journey into wetlands and a floodplain swamp, where visitors may see great blue herons and a bounty of other animals. 

Camping

The park does not have traditional camping facilities.

The Summit offers full-service dining and lodging in motels and cabins for groups of 10 to 180. There are several meeting spaces of varying sizes, a gymnasium, an athletic field, disc golf, an outdoor pool, and a challenge course.
