Take a Child Outside: Campout
Never been camping? Afraid of the dark? You’re not alone. Join a Park ranger and take this rare opportunity to camp in Chimney Rock State Park. A ranger will be available at 5:30 pm to help set up camp and build a campfire for a fun-filled night under the stars! Still not sure? The ranger will be camping overnight to assist you with any of your questions about camping in the great outdoors. You must bring your own camping gear and dinner. No camping gear or food is provided for this event.
