Faculty, staff, students and friends of Campbell University are welcome to explore our beautiful Pollinator Meadows & River Park.
Enjoy a brisk hike or peaceful stroll in open meadows or mature forests. Marvel at the diversity of butterflies and birds flitting through wildflower meadows adorned with thousands of native perennials; with special emphasis on larval-host flowers, shrubs and trees, and seasonal fruit and seeds for songbirds and bobwhite quail.
Our riverside trails offer stunning views of the Cape Fear River, quiet meditation sites and camping with friends.
Affectionately called the 'Back Nine' by students and locals; Campbell's Pollinator Meadows & River Park, while once serving as a nine-hole golf course, also offers our Environmental Science & Biology students a diversity of ecosystems to explore and study.
Come visit us today!
Campbell's Pollinator Meadows & River Park, often called the 'Back Nine', is an extraordinary assemblage of meadows, trails, camping areas and beautiful riverside views of the mighty Cape Fear River.
Under the direction of Campbell's Cape Fear River Initiative, our undergraduate students in Environmental Science and Biology, along with students in our Conservation & Outdoor Recreation Club play a major role in documenting unique ecosystems and maintaining our park trails, roads and sensitive sites.
Campbell's Cape Fear River Initiative is proud to partner with Three Rivers Land Trust (TRLT) to offer their members free access to our River Park. Click on the link below to join TRLT and begin your Cape Fear River adventure today!
