Not a massive Eno enthusiast like some others, but love NC STate parks in general. This park is very very nice, though crowded on the weekends. Keep walking though and you end up with some isolation. Strongly recommend

Pound for pound this is the best hiking around. Many folks go through Roxboro Rd or Cole Mill, but I prefer some of the more hidden access points. Nearly all of the trails are easy to moderate. There are places to swim and a big quarry. It's a real treasure! I definitely recommend trying some of the smaller access points... More

Took my little boy here and was surprised at so many nice things to do while still having the solitude of nature. We were able to go canoeing then took a short hike and found a millhouse from colonial times.

We walk along the Eno State Park trails often. Take our dog with us much of the time. Very calming walking along the river, seeing the turtles sunning themselves on huge rock and logs. Watching the cranes come in for a landing. It's always a pleasure and great exercise.

Little creeks with small water fall, clear cold water, plenty of areas for walking, hiking, tadpoles and fish. However the ranger was a little off the wall. Instead of asking my husband about our plates he waited for him to pass get back into our truck and drive to the creek entrance to pull us over. Now we just bought... More

The landscaping is absolutely beautiful. It looks like something out of a movie. The trees are lush and green. I love to go there with my dog. I have also seen lots of wildlife there.

Eno River has many hiking trails, some more challenging than others but all of them are beautiful and enjoyable. For a casual walk or a brisk hike I recommend it is worth your time.

Several easy trails along the river, well maintained with a map at each trailhead. I have been here several times and walked most of the trails, the Mountain to the Sea trail in NC goes through this state park. The last time I brought my 2 young grandsons and they had a ball playing in the water which I understand... More

So close to downtown, a lovely place to enjoy nature without a drive to the NC mountains. Go, you will be glad you did! Your soul needs this place:)
