A great pace to get up close with nature. Trials are clean and wide. The kids love the hiking and seeing the water flowing in the creeks when rain permits. Easy hiking with great views.

I went to hike the Watershed Trail and ended up doing them all. First this is not a place that is handicap accessible except for the area around the parking lot restrooms and... More

What a great place to take elementary students for a field trip and picnic lunch. The students and teachers alike ALL love the talking trees.

This is an awesome educational park! It cover forestry, geology, and animal science throughout its many trails. There are picnic shelters, interactive trails, ranger education stations, and a few geocaches for those interested!

Beautiful park with "talking" trees and rocks, so entertaining for young children. Easy less than a mile trail walk. Great picnic area. Definitely family friendly place!

Grounds are well kept...there are restroom facilities...nice trails to walk, that teach you about the trees / the history of the trees. Picnic tables, shelters and grills are available. Always okay to bring the pets. We go here several times a year and will continue to do so! Also a nice place for a family reunion. Lots of space in... More

We had a great time walking through the trails here and seeing the fish at the small dock. The picnic tables are a great place to have lunch as part of the visit. Highly recommend.

I live in Clayton, NC and visit Clemmons Educational State Forest quite often. It is a great place to go with family and friends. I recommend each person wearing a whistle in case someone gets lost. If you have bread, you can feed the ducks in the pond. Each time I go I try to take a different route. With... More
