Often state parks are established to protect a natural resource unique to the state. Cliffs of the Neuse fits this mold. Hills are limited here on the coastal plain, and cliffs are rare. Interesting geologic events occurred to form the cliffs along the Neuse River. In 1944, local landowner Lionel Weil proposed that this unusual area, which also harbors a mixture of plants representing different areas of the state, be preserved as a state park. Private individuals banded together to donate the land for the park to the state of North Carolina. More property was added later and an infrastructure built to complement the cliffs, including a lake, trails, and an uncrowded campground that is a great weekend retreat.
