Carolina Beach State Park Should Go National

From the April 12, 2016, Dallas Morning News "5 state parks that should go national" by Diana Lambdin Meyer.

Our own Carolina Beach State Park was mentioned as becoming a national park instead of just a state park.

CAROLINA BEACH STATE PARK, North  Carolina.  Contains 760 acres plus another 600 acres of Fort Fisher State Historic Site.  It is suggested that the two be joined and renamed the Cape Fear National Park

The idea was broached before, but didn't get far.

Carolina Beach State Park is one of the few places in the world where you can find Venus Flytrap plants hat were once found throughout the South.  It also contains Sugar loaf, a large sandhill which was once a Confederate camp during the Civil War.

Fort Fisher State Historic Site is a well-preserved Civil War fort.

North Carolina State Parks are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year.
