The Occoneechee COPE and Climbing Program is a component of the Occoneechee Council,Boy Scouts of America.  The Council Headquarters are in Raleigh, North Carolina with facilities at the Occoneechee Scout Reservation in Carthage, NC. We offer a complete package of opportunities to every range of Scout, from Cub Scout up through Venture Crew. Our facilities are open year round for not only scouting groups but non-scouting groups as well.

Dude On Rock...

Special Activity Permits are now required for ALL organized rock climbing groups. This new regulation applies to ALL North Carolina State Parks.  A Special Activity Permit can be obtained online at or at the Park Office, and it must be submitted to the Park Superintendent at least 14 days in advance of your planned trip.  This effort is to enable parks to manage the climbing areas and the natural resource more effectively. In addition, this will enable each park to maintain a safe number of climbers per day.
