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!

This has an old dam, reconstructed buildings, rafting in summer, and acres of beautiful land. Home of Eno Festival around the 4th of July each year, music and culture and education; proceeds help preserve more land along the Eno River.
