Last November a fire at Party Rock raged from November 5 to November 27, burning 7,142 acres (2,489 acres of NC State Park property and 4,653 acres of private property, according to the North Carolina incident information system website), and resulted in the evacuation of over 1,000 people. The beauty of nature is that it does heal and it heals quickly. The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock area is as beautiful as ever. Take a look at pictures below.
