Wilson Creek Visitor Center

Once the Wilson Creek Wild and Scenic River was designated, Caldwell County began work on the creation of a visitor/education center to promote the outstanding values of Wilson Creek. Led by the efforts of the Caldwell County commissioners, the county purchased 6.4 acres along Wilson Creek using grants from the N.C. Natural Heritage Trust and the N.C. Clean Water Management Trust in January 2001. Later that year, funds for the construction of the visitor center were received from the N.C. Department of Transportation Enhancement Funds. Construction of the visitor center began in May 2002. On October 14, 2002, the Wilson Creek Visitor Center officially opened its doors to the public.

The Wilson Creek Visitor Center gives information on the Wilson Creek area and has a photograph and artifact collection that tells the history of the area. Officially designated as a Wild and Scenic River, The Wilson Creek Visitor Center is your gateway to adventure on Wilson Creek and the surrounding area. There is no better place to Explore Caldwell then the Wilson Creek area, with hiking, fishing, waterfalls, and kayaking there is sure to be a fun option for any level of adventurer. A picturesque escape from the real world, stop on by the Wilson Creek Visitor Center to start planning your adventure or just sit on the porch and relax a spell.
