Prayers for Creation: Come early (any time after 4:00pm), and beat the traffic! The park gates close at 8:00pm, and no one is permitted in or out after that time. Please plan on joining us until 7:30pm, and then make your way out, or count on spending the night!
If you are coming for the evening only please bring: warm clothes, a side dish to share with dinner, and a camp chair.
If you are spending the night, please bring: warm clothes (it will be cold overnight!), a side dish to share with dinner, a camp chair, socks & comfortable shoes for walking/playing, a sleeping bag, pillow, bug spray, a flashlight, toiletries (there are sinks, but no showers), necessary medications.
Directions: William B. Umstead State Park is located in Wake County between Raleigh and Durham. Camp Lapihio is in the Crabtree Creek section which is located 10 miles northwest of Raleigh off US 70. The park visitor’s center is also located in this section. From US 70 headed west, turn left onto Umstead Parkway, pass the park office and follow signs to Camp Lapihio, and then to the Oaks. It’s a beautiful drive once you’re in the park!
