Clemmons Educational State Forest

Clemmons Educational State Forest provides a unique outdoors experience.

Located between the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain, Clemmons' pine stands and hardwoods are set on a pleasant rolling terrain highlighted by streams and rock formations.

These features are accessible by a series of well-marked trails, accented by exhibits and displays depicting the ecology of a managed forest.


Fees and Permits

Currently, there are no fees associated with use of any Educational State Forest. Permits are required for certain activities and special events. For more information about permitting requirements at Clemmons ESF, contact the Forest’s office.
