Site was level and well maintained. Back the trailer in and hook ups were ready and available. Beautiful area with really nice views of the lake.
I have been at this camp ground for nearly two weeks. Every Ranger and employee I’ve interacted with has been amazingly professional and nice. The facilities are kept in pristine shape regarding cleanliness and upkeep. The campers have all been friendly and welcoming. If you’re looking for a close getaway in the Raleigh area, this is the place to go!!
We hadn't been camping since december of 19. Then came covid. We finally felt good enough to venture out and regain our hiking legs. We decided on falls because the trails are easy and it seemed like it would be a very chill place on the water. The boats start at 630 in the morning and go ALL night. People were partying until 330 am across the water at another loop, the camp host is located in that loop!!! I would say its a great spot if you like summer water sports. I'm guessing it gets much quieter in the fall/winter. The actual sites are spaced well with plenty of tree coverage. Our spot was on the outer rim with a path right down to the water to swim! Not the peaceful relaxing trip we had hoped for but it served its purpose of getting our unused gear out and making sure everything was in good order.
Lots of trees for shade and hammocks. Well maintained campgrounds and facilities. Friendly staff.
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.
