Raven Rock State Park

The Overlook, Great Hikes and More Things To Do!
3009 Raven Rock Rd, Lillington, NC 27546

When talking about Raven Rock State Park in Harnett County, North Carolina, the Cape Fear River will always find its way into the conversation. That’s because this important river cuts the state park in half on its way to the coast.

That important body of water is one of many things about this place that makes it one of our favorites to go hiking in North Carolina, and we’re in no way alone.

Consider just how popular this park gets on weekends and holidays, as much of the crowd heads here for a look at the river from the Overlook or down to the bucket list-worthy (and namesake) Raven Rock, and you’ll see what I mean.

Of course, a wealth of other recreational fun awaits, including fishing, camping, and even some boating. If you’re looking to visit Raven Rock State Park or reminisce about your favorite public space with us, our guide will share all that you can do here, along with contact info and personal tips to help you enjoy it most.
