Elk Knob state Park is one of the newest additions to the North Carolina State Parks System. Currently, it is in an interim development stage with a park office/contact station, a maintenance facility, picnic area, parking areas, a trail to the summit of Elk Knob, and backcountry camping areas. At this time, visitors can hike to the summit by following a newly constructed trail 1.9 miles to the summit.
We are located about 35 min from the park.
All state parks remain open and are unaffected by the partial federal government shutdown. All NC state parks are open with normal hours of operation.
