... details ±
Some GPS units, smart phones, and web based directions/map services may send you to the incorrect location(s). Access to the park is obtained only at East Manchester Road and Long Valley Road. Once on East Manchester you may see that there are two places where Long Valley Road intersects with East Manchester. This is because Long Valley Road is a horseshoe shaped road. You can only enter the park at the Long Valley Road and East Manchester intersection that has a very large brown sign with white lettering that says, "Carvers Creek State Park." Also, at this location is a turning/exit lane for your safety, a paved entrance way, and a long post and rail fence. Once your turn into the park go 1/2 a mile down the two lane gravel road to the contact station and parking area on your right. See more information at the bottom of this page.

Currently Carvers Creek State Park has no facilities that can be reserved. The park opened its gates to the public on
September 9, 2013 and is operating under its Interim (Temporary) Development phase. During this early phase of development
a park typically has few complex facilities such as camping. For now the park is a day use area with no camping available.
The park offers hiking, fishing, picnic tables, educational programs, and a park office. See the park’s Master Plan for information on the park’s possible future development.
