Great American Backyard Campout
Admire the stars from Chimney Rock while celebrating the National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Backyard Campout. Pitch a tent, warm up by the fire, and roast wienies with the family. After rock climbing, join the park naturalist on an evening walk for a new perspective on wildlife. This is a rare opportunity to spend the night at Chimney Rock Park, as camping is not otherwise allowed.
