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 members. However, a dramatic flood in September 2016 severely damaged a dam and 100-acre millpond that is a significant park feature. Fishing in the millpond, views from the floating observation deck and some trail opportunities are temporarily interrupted as repairs are being made.

The farm continues to offer 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.
