Great Spot

This is a very easy park to find.  Decent amount of parking, but it is a highly trafficked area.  I have not yet camped here, but I've hiked on the trails.  There are multiple trails, for varying skill level.

Awesome trails

Haven't camped here but the trails are long and from easy to moderate. A bit packed on the weekends but if you go early it's easy to get parking

Great Spot

Primitive camping has drive in, picnic table, fire ring, tent spot, and trails starting at your back door ⛺️

Amazing paths

Love this place! Lots of great paths to walk.

Urban hiking

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.

Convenient to home

Nice place for a quick weekend getaway.

Peaceful and dense area with good amenities

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.

Perfect piedmont. Quick getaway from the city.

I have stayed at the lodges thrice and once ended up sleeping in my hammock. Good variety in hiking trail distances.

I have stayed in the group camping sites many times and loved it.

there are historic cabins with cots to sleep on

there is electricity in the cabins.

Clean, friendly, gate time closing.

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!
