Park officials no help!!
Oct 2021 • Solo
I went there to fish. I never found the water. I asked 5 different people 3 of which were park officials. I was so upset I never found any signs saying "Fish Traps" I will never go there again and tell all of my friends to stay away from Raven Rock State Park!!

Beautiful!
May 2021
The campground is lovely with full hook up options with area with a picnic area and fire pit. I have stayed at site 14, 18 and 22, (handicap site.) The bathhouse is nice, and is closed every day for cleaning. I appreciate the rangers driving by often, keeping the park peaceful. We stayed when the gate closed at 7pm. and now it is later, however when I booked my spot and came to camp, I forgot about the gate being locked and had to leave as I had to leave much earlier for work. I have more date reserved as this is my husbands favorite park. Walk all the trails and make sure to be aware which one has all the stairs!

Nov 2020
Ive been going to Raven Rock for 30 years and waited forever for the bike trails only to have the rangers shut them down because of rain,really? I am out there to get a work out and they close the trails,i was livid.the other thing is when they finally do open "bike trails" there also hiking trails,not happy t all.And they open to late.

Brand new Campground
Nov 2020 • Friends
This is a great brand new campground there are some issues that will probably help some people number one they lock you in at 7o’clock at night if you’re not back to the campground at 7 o’clock you don’t get in I also keep the gate locked till 7 AM so if you have to be at work or if you have to leave early you were locked in from 7 PM to 7 AM also the cabins the thermostats are locked you cannot control them there is nothing but a queen there as you walk in the door a small bench and four bunkbeds with another small bench they need to add more hooks to hang things need to bring a small table To put in the cabin have somewhere to put your belongings... You might also think about bringing a mattress pad because the mattresses are as hard as a rock very clean because it’s new the sites are a good ways away from the bathhouse... Great for stargazing at night

Beautiful day for a hike
Oct 2020
Family friendly park, lovely welcoming at visitors center. Trail was marked well. Can be tricky in the wrong shoes. Scenic view of the river. Campground seems good. We do not camp but it seemed fine. Bathroom available. Get there early, we arrived at 930am and left at noon. We saw a line of cars attempting to get in. I feel like many were disappointed.

Great park! Good trails, great scenery, Raven Rock is very cool. Took my Grands (8 and 2) They were able to walk, play in the creek, and just have a great day in the woods.

Great Hiking and Camping for NC Piedmont Region
Mar 2020 • Friends
My buddies and I camped at the canoe campsite for 2 nights. We hiked in and set up our tents Friday night and relaxed. The next morning we went hiking and saw Raven Rock. The park is beautiful. Unfortunately we only hiked a small portion of the trails. I’ll definitely visit again to hike more.

Great state park!
Dec 2019
This is a well-maintained, beautiful park with several easy-to-moderate hiking trails and some fine scenery, especially at the Cape Fear River overlook and around the cliffs. The Welcome Center is especially nice, and the restrooms are open on days when the Visitor's Center is closed. There is plenty of free parking. This park is close to Lillington and Sanford and not far from Fayetteville -- well worth the drive.
