This is a wonderful, family friendly park. It has plenty of campsites for tents or small RV. There are walking trails and a marina with gas station / supply shop.

In the morning:-)I love Carolina beach. Nice and quiet yet many activities and attractions to go to.just enough people to feel like you not alone but very much laid back. We use to go a lot when I was a kid and now I take my son and the memories are everlasting

The area is very pleasant with plenty of trails and camping area. The marina with boat ramp in very convenient to the Cape Fear River and the Intercostal. The staff is friendly and can be very helpful in answering questions to make you visit first class

I visited the Carolina Beach State Park in the late afternoon time frame on a fall Saturday with the intent to hike several of the trails. The park is easy to find from downtown Carolina Beach or Kure Beach and offers you the ability to hike, camp and fish. When I first arrived I had planned on stopping at the... More

We really always enjoy going to this park with our family. It is very well kept and it is a must do when we come to Carolina Beach.

Marina is greatly improved. If not boating, there are places to cast your line into the Cape Fear River, Benches are available to watch the River & the people. Camp sites are available but have not camped there.

My first experience at Carolina Beach State Park was a solo camping trip in the heat of summer. However, this past weekend, I stayed there with some friends, a family with three young children (7, 5, and 3 years old), in the warm days and cool nights of fall. Once again, Carolina Beach State Park provided a safe, clean, comfortable,... More

we enjoyed the park a couple of times during our stay in the area for fishing. There is a very nice deck built to fish from or you can be more adventurous and fish from the rocks or shore line. The restrooms were very clean and well kept. Lots of trails to hike and picnic areas to enjoy.
