New State Park in Buncombe County

A first for Buncombe County – a new state park, which will be called Pisgah View State Park. The land has been owned by the Cogburn family since the 1700s, and has been operated as Pisgah View Ranch since the 1940s.

For lands to be considered for becoming a North Carolina state park, they must have “extraordinary natural resources representative of North Carolina’s rare or pristine ecosystems, have potential for recreation including facilities and access necessary to support it, and have sufficient opportunities for land acquisition,” said Katie Hall, spokeswoman for N.C. State Parks.
