There is an old restored gristmill on the river open during certain times of the year. Walking trails along the river makes for a relaxing day. There are two shelters for gatherings, along with the old farm house you can visit. There`s a big 3 day event for 4th of July.

We have passed this park hundreds of times and finally visited with our rescued dog for a hike. We have been to better marked parks but fumbled our way through a beautiful 4 mile hike. We couldn't figure out how to get across to the 1.8 mile path that leads to Guess Rd but wandered up around the amphitheater parking... More

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

West Point on the Eno is also home to the annual Festival for the Eno held over July 4th holiday ever year. The Festival incorporates the land and promotes preservation. There are several outdoor stages here that host musical guests during the... More
