State Parks

The Raleigh, N.C., area is home to two state parks just moments away from busy streets and area hotels, but you'll feel miles away from stress while inside their bounds. Containing miles of hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking trails, safe campgrounds, boat and canoe rentals and fish that bite, make the short drive and spend an hour, a day--or a whole weekend--in one of these state parks.
