My wife and I were up in this part of town one afternoon recently and decided to stop in. I had heard of the park for many years but never actually visited. I was surprised to find a mill where you can buy ground cornmeal and grits (it's closed in the winter). The staff members working on site were very... More

There are several outdoor stages here that host musical guests during the... More

I like the setting and the old mill site. I usually take the kayak and go upstream on the Eno river. The scenery and the wildlife are wonderful.

You have to drive through some ugly urban sprawl to get there, but the park itself goes on and on, just charming. The Eno Park is one of the nicest in NC!
