Carvers Creek State Park is the first North Carolina state park to open in the Sandhills region! Carvers Creek contains more than 4,000 acres. This is one of the few places where you can experience the longleaf pine ecosystem.
Amenities at Carvers Creek State Park have centered on Long Valley Farm, the historic retreat of a Rockefeller family member. The farm offers scenic, contemplative hiking through longleaf pine forests, and rangers lead regular interpretive programs, including occasional tours through the vacation home of the late James Stillman Rockefeller, who bequeathed the property.
Multi-use trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding are accessible at the park's Sandhills access. There are many opportunities to view nature and the open fields are wonderful places to view birds and insects.
