Beautiful, Spread-out campsites

Eno River State Park has amazing backpack in camping that is well worth the beautiful walk through the woods. The last trip here was so wonderful that we extended it by two nights! 

I’ve camped here numerous times, at different sites each time and have not had a bad experience yet. The hike to get to the campsites winds around the river and across bridges. The actual hikes do not gain much elevation so while it’s not as easy as walking on pavement, it does not take an advanced hiker to reach the remote camp sites. Each campsites I’ve stay at has been fairly spread out from other sites, while you’ll be able to see and hear others these are not uncomfortably close sites. 

There’s plenty to explore, so its definitely worth staying for multiple nights. It’s on the Mountain to Sea Trail so a lot of campers around us were through hikers and only stayed one night, but we spent four here and it was four of the most peaceful and relaxing days I can remember. All the sites I’ve stay at have had fire pit rings and tent pads. There’s never been a picnic table, just a rustic wood bench, so I recommend a camp chair or my personal favorite- a tree hammock as there are plenty of places to hang on. 

With rivers running through  the whole park, we packed minimal water and used a life straw. The rivers here are very clean and didn't not give us any second thoughts to drink it. The cool, delicious water is better than anything bottled :) 

I've gone in both September and April and the weather was perfect both months, cool at night and around 70 during the day. 

This is hands down, one of my favorite State Parks to camp at in both North and South Carolina.

Very FAMILY Friendly campground

This campground we heard about from another camper and was telling us about we went last weekend camping and loved it VERY friendly staff and family oriented lots of activities and just one of those places you feel like your at home . Highly recommend and very nice bathroom's and showers. Will definitely be back!!

Love the beach and waterside camping

Standard and group camping

Things to know:

  • Area is managed by Durham Parks and Rec.. the campground is on a hill above Lake Michie. -You are supposed to make reservations but most folks don’t.
  • Sites are numbered, with a large group camping area and small hiking trails.
  • There are pit toilets and water (seasonal, typically on March thru October). -The driveway shares with the Spruce Pine Lodge, which has a parking area and playground area. This is a rental for events.
  • On occasion there is a chain across the drive into the camping area (typically winter months).
  • Beware of locals pulling in late at night to do adult things in their cars.
Quiet and secluded

Lake Michie is one of Durham’s water reservoir. This property is actually managed by Durham Park and Rec and you are supposed to pay to reserve; however most folks do not. This site is primitive and borders the lake. The road is very rutted and unkempt. Two pit toilets are located nearby and well hidden. There is a small stone fire pit with a grill top attached.

Large field and dispersed camping throughout the area. Plenty of pine straw and wood to use for a fire.

The road in is also someone’s driveway so use caution.

Nice rv campground

We stayed at this rv campground while visiting the many things to see and do in Greensboro North Carolina. visitgreensboronc.com

The rv sites are all pull thru nearly level, big gravel sites. We had plenty of room for ort 45' plus toad. There is a nice large K9 park. Playground. The best WIFI we have experienced and many free antenna tv channels. The restrooms and laundry were both neat and clean. The hosts were wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable. Will return for a longer stay.
