Witness the effects of the forces of erosion which have carved and chiseled cliffs in the west bank of the Neuse River. Here ancient mountain communities meet coastal ones and mountain galax grows on rich slopes overlooking coastal trees draped in Spanish moss. This 750-acre park features a 90-foot-high sand cliff, three hiking trails (1/2 mile each), picnic area, family camping, group camping, lake swimming, fishing and canoeing on the river. The new visitor center is LEED certified and hosts museum-quality exhibits that explore the natural history and the unique geological events that shaped the landscape of the park.

The Park offers primitive group camping, plus tent and RV camping. Visit our website for camping specifics. Please call the toll-free number for reservations.
