We in North Carolina are blessed with beautiful beaches, majestic mountains and countless rivers and streams in between.

Through these pages you'll learn about our parks and recreation areas and the division's efforts to preserve these pockets of North Carolina's natural beauty. We've also included information on our programs to help you better understand our operations.

Thanks for visiting our website. I'm sure you'll discover, as we have, that North Carolina's state parks system is Naturally Wonderful!
