A great, centrally located campground. Raleigh is a short drive away. Wonderful shopping, antiquing, and sightseeing abound.
The Wake-Med Hospital is also great for emergencies.
Had a great time! Some of the sites are right on the water allowing for camping and kayaking. Sites are large to accommodate two tents and two vehicles nicely. Bathrooms are what you would expect but clean. Some sites further back (not water side) have trees for hammocking. The trees near my site (122) did not have adequate trees for hammocking. I will absolutely be back.
(The only thing you will contend with is occasional air traffic noise from RDU. If you’re sensitive consider bringing earplugs for your comfort.)
Wide spots are easy to get in and out of even with more than one vehicle. Some spots are doubles so camping with friends is very easy. The hiking trail to the boat launch is the the shade but lots of bugs! Nice swim areas. We arrived mid week and it was not crowded, the weekend filed the campground but everyone was pleasant. I would highly recommend and will be coming back!
This lake was incredible. We ended up camping right beside the lake. The facilities were well taken care of. Plenty of space and room for cars. there wasn't as many trees per campsite unless you were in certain areas of the park. Neighbors friendly and park staff would go around for safety checks. The sunrise was the most stunning view. 10/10 would recommend.
Very Family-friendly. It’s best if you can get a site near the beach if you have kids Otherwise you’ll end up driving them back-and-forth. lots of sites. If you’re willing to not be near the beach there are some pretty sites with the lake just steps away. Very pretty backdrop. So
The tent campsites are right next to the water with beautiful views of the lake. You can kayak directly to your campsite. There’s also a swimming beach with pfds, grills, and picnic tables available. Each campsite has a trash can, picnic table, and fire pit. The only issue we had was the drinking water. The water pump next to our campsite produced brown water. We had to bring large jugs of bottled water to use instead.
I stayed on the cove of Holly point. These are very nice and quiet sites.
Good options if you would like some privacy while camping. They also have good spots for fishing and small boat launches( canoe's, and kayaks)
Sites are right on the lake, perfect for kayaking. The sites are close together but still semi private. Lots of short hikes and a swimming area.
Visited 4 times to the same spot and loved the shade, proximity to bath house and lake
Like the title, great water access to Falls Lake from both the campsites and a separate boat launch. Most of the RV sites were back-in with water and power, no sewage hook-ups, just a dump station upon your exit. Fire pit and picnic table at each site. Additionally, there's a small swim area boomed off with a little beach, great to just sit and hang out by the waterfront. Lots of tall, norrow trees for hammock set-ups. Also, driving distance to Beaver biking trails.
Only drawback was pretty dingy showers, and they were alighty narrow so I felt a little claustrophobic, especially while trying not to touch any of the sides. Toilet stalls were okay. Sinks were also dirty. Other than that, I would definitely come back for the waterfront access alone.
