Baldscape at Raven Rock State Park in Lillington NC
Thee park offers primitive backcountry camping areas for families, groups and paddlers; all supplies must be carried in, but the solitude is worth the effort. A separate equestrian area on the river’s north bank offers extensive trails and a large parking area. Frequent interpretive programs complement museum-quality exhibits in the visitor center exploring the Cape Fear region’s cultural and natural history Raven Rock State Park sits along the fall zone, an area where the hard, resistant rocks of the foothills give way to the softer rocks and sediments of the coastal plain. The underlying rocks of the area were formed more than 400 million years ago by intense heat and pressure.
This Baldscape captures a great view of the waters edge. The baldscaper has managed to almost blend his bald head into the sand colored earth like a bald camouflage.
More about the Park
In 1965, interest grew in preserving the area as a state park, and local citizens organized support for the project. In 1969, a bill establishing the park was passed in the General Assembly. More than 220 acres (0.89 km2) of land were purchased and another 170 acres (0.69 km2) were donated by Burlington Industries. Additional tracts have since been purchased, bringing the park to its present size of 4,667 acres (18.89 km2). More at Trip Advisor
