Primitive camping has drive in, picnic table, fire ring, tent spot, and trails starting at your back door ⛺️
Love this place! Lots of great paths to walk.
This park offers miles of hiking within Raleigh. You would never realize you were in Raleigh. It’s a great escape from traffic and noise a city can bring.
Nice place for a quick weekend getaway.
This campground is right on a lake allowing for drive in campground with a body of water to swim, kayak, and enjoy only 100 yards away. Showers, bathrooms, and running drinking water is nearby. Campgrounds are close but separated by trees and forest to create privacy.
I have stayed at the lodges thrice and once ended up sleeping in my hammock. Good variety in hiking trail distances.
there are historic cabins with cots to sleep on
there is electricity in the cabins.
The campgrounds close at 9pm! So you have to be in the park by 9 before the gate closes. Nice mountain bike trails though and a lovely park!
Nice place great hiking or running trails
Umstead is an awesome place to come for the weekend whether you are into camping, hiking, running, or biking. There are a wide variety of single track to larger sand/dirt paths. My cross country team will come here for long day. There are pavilions that are great for cooking or serving a large brunch after our run. Would recommend!
