Something For Everyone
When planning an outing to Moores Creek, be sure to pack a picnic. Feel free to take advantage of our charcoal grills, picnic tables, and pavilion. The family pet can also enjoy the trials and picnic area while on a leash. The picnic area is open year round and is a great way to enjoy a beautiful North Carolina day.
Junior Ranger Program:
Have the kids become official Junior Rangers while visiting Moores Creek. Our Junior Ranger program is suited for all ages. After completion of the work book, kids will be sworn in and receive their official Ranger badge and patch.
Want to know a little more about the history of the park? Ask a Ranger for a guided tour. Pending staff availability, park Rangers are available to give tours seven days a week with all tours being free of charge.
