A little walk through the woods and you are at the river. Watch out for snakes and kayakers. The water level fluctuates and fishing is spotty. There were many families and co-eds enjoying the swimming holes. Relaxing, even when busy.

We love Eno River State Park. No matter where you head in - it meanders all along the Eno, with entrances for a variety of activities - you'll find an adventure. Hints of the mills and homesteads that were early Durham and Hillsborough. The river, with it's pools, for cooling off. And the friendliest and most helpful rangers ever.

We were there when the weather was perfect and were astounded by the flora and fauna. We saw at least 3 different species of skinks as well as frogs and a copperhead snake-magnificent!

We went there the other day. Nice trails. My son had a blast crossing the bridge and checking out the log cabin, Looking forward to going there again soon.

It was a beautiful hike. There was a variety of trees, plants, and flowers. We settled at a secluded spot on the river and went fishing. We caught mainly sunfish but a few other species not native to the area which made it more fun. Don't go alone because there are reports of bums that might see you as an... More

My home is one of the fortunate few that is on the banks of the Eno, backed by forest preserve. I am forever grateful for the trails, the fews and preservation of this land..try and get off on some of the lesser known trails and you will find solitude and peace on the outskirts of Durham.

Lots of trees, plenty of wildlife, very rustic setting. There were a lot of mosquitoes that day we were there so we did not stay very long. Walking trail along the water was nice.

The Eno is a beautiful park with lots of options for hikers. Durham is rightly proud of this beautiful, natural spot. Do be careful about what you leave in your car though, as their parking lot is notorious for car thieves.

Take a hike here--the trails are easy to follow, there's a beautiful river, small lakes and trails that offer different levels and distances. Fun for the whole family.
