This is an NC “must hike” spot

Family campground is clean and well spaced. Facilities are reasonably clean. But the view from the top is why we go, and keep going!

So thankful for this local treasure!

We hike and swim Eno nearly weekly and are so thankful this resource is so close to us! We also backpack into the primitive sites frequently. We love the trails. The sites are always clean. The primitive sites are spaces far enough apart that it truly feels like solitude. Piper Creek is our favorite. Flat and easy 1.2 mile hike in along the river.

Waterfall!!!

I searched “best waterfalls in NC” and this park did not disappoint. We stayed for 3 nights- family campsite (sites 6-9 are beat IMO) was used as basecamp. We also had a primitive site that we backpacked to for a night. This was a great approach to the park. We feel like we got to experience so much more of the fun and experiential opportunities that park had to offer! Great trails. Great views. The nature trail area was a great way to start and end the day as we hiked back to “basecamp”. 10/10 would recommend!
