Chimney Rock State Park receives $4.5M for land acquisition.

Thanks to the NC Natural Heritage Trust Fund, the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation will be able to acquire another 212 acres of land to add to the Chimney Rock State Park.

Chimney Rock state park which is still in development was authorized for creation in 2005 and started with almost 1,000 acres of what was previously a private park purchased by the state of North Carolina for approximately $24 million.

This new land to be added to the park is now privately owned and will include Bottomless Pools near Lake Lure.
