Gorges State Park

Gorges State Park

Set in more than 7000 acres of natural wilderness, Gorges State Park is near Sapphire in North Carolina. Transylvania County's Jocasee Gorges are part of of this park that was purchased in 1999 from the Duke Energy Corporation. This is the westernmost and newest state park in North Carolina and is possible through a partnership between industry, the state, and environmentalists to preserve this natural wonderland for future generations.

A truly breathtaking area to take a break in with a choice of accommodation from the most rustic of cabins, to the most luxurious cabins set in secluded areas of the wilderness. There is much to do from fishing the lakes and rivers, to touring the waterfalls to experience the incredible natural force of nature, whitewater rafting for an adrenalin rush, or visit some of the local towns to experience the life of the local people.

Gorges Park is unique with its sheer rock walls, tumbling waterfalls, rare flora and fauna, as well as its rough river gorges. As you travel through Gorges Park its elevation rises more than 2000 feet in a space of 4 miles. It has a rainfall average of 90 inches a year which creates a wonderful network of waterfalls throughout the area.
