Who We Are

Who We Are

FRARO = Friends of Raven Rock State Park

We are a not-for-profit 501c3 organization which supports 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, biking trails, campsites, and the mixed forest which covers 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 trails and campsites, but also the spirit of the land.

Our Friends group was established in January of 2012. We coordinate 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.
