Nice place to rest and rejuvenate while enjoying the beauty of nature. Ample picnic tables for the amount of guests visiting and restroom facilities available and in working order. The area was also very clean and inviting.

Lots of accessible hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous. The park also has a swimming pool, lake, fishing areas, bridle trails, and easy-to-navigate roads for drivers. The biggest plus? VERY clean bathrooms. One of the best NC state parks I've visited.
