Special Activity Permits are now required for ALL organized rock climbing groups. This new regulation applies to ALL North Carolina State Parks.  A Special Activity Permit can be obtained online at or at the Park Office, and it must be submitted to the Park Superintendent at least 14 days in advance of your planned trip.  This effort is to enable parks to manage the climbing areas and the natural resource more effectively. In addition, this will enable each park to maintain a safe number of climbers per day. 
In accordance with current BSA Cope/Climbing Standards the following program changes are in effect:

All staff members may be considered as part of the staff to maintain the required ratio of staff to participants; however, instructors in training must be directly supervised by a Level I or Level II instructor or a director. A Level II instructor or director directly supervises the program and must be present at the program site except for bouldering or portable climbing walls.
