Crowders Mountain State Park »  Current Conditions
DOT Road Work to Interrupt Access to Park Entrance on Sparrow Springs. Follow Detour signs.
... details ±
Access to Crowders Mountain State Park from the north on Sparrow Springs Road has been interrupted by a DOT repair project.
Visitors approaching Crowders Mountain State Park from I-85 must follow a 6.5 mile detour to the park marked by NCDOT detour signs. That route is described at this Web address: Mapquest
. The detour begins at the intersection of Freedom Mill Road and Sparrow SPrings Road. Google Maps still provides incorrect when using the state park's mailing address.
All visitors should approach the main park entrance with caution since the roadway will be reduced. Visitors are also encouraged to consider as an alternative the Boulders Access Area at 108 VanDyke Road, Kings Mountain, NC, which offers sufficient parking even on busy weekends. For more information, call the park office at 704-853-5375.
