Beauty, peace, and quiet

I spent a night at the primitive campsite right before new years and enjoyed it immensely. It was forecasted to be rainy and had been raining for a couple of days prior. The park was absolutely gorgeous and secluded feeling (probably thanks to the rain!) The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and provided plenty of info. The campsite had a bench and firepit. The site itself was off the trail a bit allowing it to be more secluded feeling. Overall, I loved it and will be going back. I hope to take a fishing rod with me next time as I have heard decent things about fishing there.


The trails are nice and short, not too much room for extra exploration. Best advice is there are some big rocks in the river at various locations that you can lay on and take a nap. Super comfy and the water is also pretty shallow. Great place to get wet. Never camped here before, only day trips.

Hike-in primitive camping

Not crowded, nice selection of trails, plenty of fishing on the Cape Fear, woodland creatures abound.

Back to nature setting

It is a place of beauty and next to cape fear river ,Has plenty of places to hike to and to camp.

Great hiking

Backpack camping is great here. Trails are good for family and have been here numerous times and will continue to go even though we have hiked all the trails.


The sites here are great and the hike in is not bad at all. Well spaced and maintained. The vistors center is always super clean and everyone from rangers to staff are really friendly. Great spot for day or over night.

perfect for a day trip

great hiking paths, going deep into the woods. we have not camped there because they only accept tents.


Hiking in

Bring the Dog

We brought our dog on our hike. The trails are easily followed and they include long and short Trails for your enjoyment. great day trip.

Canoe camping site.

It was a pretty nice camp. They have a fire pit with grill and a place to hang and dry out stuff. The entrance was pretty steep coming off the river. There were 3 kayaks in my group ant that was tuff to drag them up. Disclaimer call ahead and make sure the boy scouts won't be the at the same time. They left all their canoes all up in down the trail you have to traverse up. There is a toilet.
