Who We Are

FRARO = Friends of Raven Rock State Park

Our group is comprised of people who have fallen in love with Raven Rock State Park.

FRARO’s membership is made up of nature lovers, hikers, horseback riders, fishermen, canoeists, kayakers, and campers. We treasure the quiet, safe, and friendly atmosphere so prevalent at Raven Rock. We embrace the river that runs through the park, its rich history, the hiking trails, equestrian trails, campsites, and the mixed forest which blankets the land today.

And we want to see Raven Rock retain the beauty and qualities that draw people back time and again. People return to the park not only to enjoy the campsites and group sites, but also the spirit of the land.

The Friends was established in January of 2012. We work with Raven Rock State Park which has designated us as the park’s official support group, strengthening the web of the Friends’ group network statewide in the North Carolina State Park System.
