What was once a Rockefeller winter estate, just north of Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, North Carolina is what is now known as Carvers Creek State Park.
Here you can find several trails that loop around the estate. Several historic buildings remain on the land and are being restored for public tours. A mill pond has been drained for repairs since there was damage to the dam in 2016. The mill pond stretches over 100 acres and will be quite a sight once it’s restored.
It’s not a huge park for camping or visitors, but it boasts much beauty and historic presence. We’ve only visited the park once as dogs aren’t really allowed off leash and the trails don’t go on for miles… However, it’s definitely worth the visit and the hike. Once the pond is restored, I’m sure more and more visitors will find this state park a must see for the area!
