Carver's Creek, one of NC newerparks, is the home of the Long Valley farm, the winter home of James Stillman Rockefeller a grand nephew of Jon Rockefeller. He was an Olympic rowing champion in the 1924 Paris Olympics and the CEO of Citigroup. The home is being renovated although the park service does conduct occasional tours. The home overlooks a 100 acre millpond that........oops! They didn't tell me the pond was gone..... yes the pond is currently gone. Heavy rains in September 2016 washed the millponds dam away so the pond currently does not exist...the dam is being reconstructed but may take 5 years to complete.... bummer for the fisherman but I as always didn't come to fish but to hike!. This is a small park on the outskirts of Spring Lake N.C. and one part of the trail system does back up to private residences, another part borders Fort Bragg. But a nice park it is. Actually the lake with out water was very fascinating seeing the water cypress trees without water and the huge root system these trees have. Not sorry I went this one gets 5 stars and being that development is ongoing it will only get better.
