The State of North Carolina charges minimal, if any, fees to shoot on available state property such as government buildings in the Raleigh area and across the area, as well as beaches, parks, lakes, historical sites, and other recreational areas. There could be fees if additional assistance is needed in the way of park personnel and law enforcement, varying by region.
