Getting to Buffalo Creek Park

Getting to Buffalo Creek Park

Anyone who has been to Lake Lure in the Hickory Nut Gorge of Western North Carolina knows that the area is made up primarily by forest and forested mountains.  That isn't to say that we don't have all the creature comforts. We do! 
We just want you to know that although it is very close to Rumbling Bald Resort, Buffalo Creek Park is by all definitions located in the back country of Lake Lure.

We have provided information for getting here in two ways.  You can map the location with Google Maps or you can print print out the directions below.

In preparation for your visit, you can also print out the trail map for the park.  Bear in mind the trail map only reflects phase 1 of the park.

Other important things to know:

  • Parking space is limited and fills up quickly.  Additional parking is coming. 
  • Plan ahead. There are no bathroom facilities at the park. 
  • Trail signage is everywhere along the trails, as is an emergency notification system should you need assistance  


The park is located at:

2191 Buffalo Creek Road
Lake Lure, NC  28746
