Camp Crabtree at William B. Umstead State Park is located 10 miles northwest of Raleigh off US 70. Take US 70 to the Umstead Park entrance. You will follow paved roads for 1 mile and then a dirt road for 2 miles (it feels longer than that). Take Umstead Parkway past the Visitor’s Center. Take a Left onto Maintenance Road and a Right onto Group Camp Road, follow Group Camp Road until you see signs for Camp Crabtree (not Lapihio). You can drive all the way up to the mess hall to unload and then park in the designated parking lot.

The park gates close at 8PM, and no one is permitted in or out after that time. Please join us until 7:30PM, and then make your way out, or count on spending the night!
