Reservations Alert … details ±
Make advance reservations at state parks online or through our toll-free call center. Call 1-877-7-CAMP-NC (722-6762) or select a park from the dropdown box on the left to navigate to the reservations page for that park.
NOTICE: As of July 27, advance reservations at Kerr Lake, Jordan Lake and Falls Lake state recreation areas cannot be made. This is due to unexpected problems with Internet connectivity at entrance stations. This “blackout” period for reservations will prevent double-booking and ensure there are no unreasonable delays for visitors at the entrance stations. During this interim, visitors can receive permits for camping on a first come, first served basis as sites are available. Advance reservations already in place will be honored. We regret any difficulties this presents and look forward to complete implementation of the reservations system at these parks in the near future.

There are a few places in the world that still stand apart from the ordinary. Rising more than a mile high, surrounded by the gentle mist of low-hanging clouds, Mount Mitchell State Park is one of these extraordinary places.
In the crest of the timeworn Black Mountains lies the summit of Mount Mitchell, the highest point east of the Mississippi. For those who ascend this mighty peak, what looms in the horizon is a feast for the eyes—breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling ridges and fertile valleys. Forested and forever misty, 1,946-acre Mount Mitchell State Park will provide you with some of the most tranquil moments you’ll ever experience.
