Visit Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park This Summer


Experience the best of the North Carolina mountains in one place at Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park, an international outdoor destination in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western NC, attracting visitors from around the world. And it’s only a lovely 25 mile drive from Asheville.


There is so much to see and do! You’ll find beautiful scenery, including 75-mile panoramic views overlooking Lake Lure, fabulous hiking trails, native wildlife and one of North Carolina's highest waterfalls (featured in the movie The Last of the Mohicans).

 And as a Season Passholder, you get 12 months of visits to the Park for only $32! This is less than the cost of two visits!

Plus you’ll get great discounts on programs, workshops and hikes and discounted admission for your friends who come with you, a discount on food, beverages and retail purchases in all Park outlets, and even more discounts at favorite local attractions and shops, including Biltmore, Lake Lure Tours, Mast General Store & others!

Where else can you get such a big return for such a small investment?

 Chimney Rock Management’s dedicated Green Team meets regularly to ensure sustainable practices are implemented properly and review additional opportunities to reduce the Park’s carbon footprint.

 This is a wonderful time to visit the Smokies! And no visit would be complete without a visit to Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park, the best of the mountains in one place!
