“Great for dog walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

What a good idea ... preserving the land near our streams. Not only does the park have well maintained trails (except along the river where debris has washed up) but there are picnic areas and benches. Watch out for snakes, though. This IS a wild area.

“This is a great little getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We went for some short hikes in the fall as well as the spring. These woods and the snaking river are so wonderful year round. Our dog seemed to enjoy himself immensely as well! It's a short drive and well worth it.

“Outstanding Outside Family Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Eno River was a great destination for a Memorial Weekend daytrip. To get our teenagers out of the house, we drove to Durham and experienced this park for the first time. There are lots of trails here that edge the scenic Eno. We only had the time to hike a few trails but we will return. There is a neat small suspension bridge that kids will love that is reminiscent of "Indiana Jones" movies (but safe without a deep gorge). Being from eastern NC, the rocky Eno River was similar visually to mountain terrain without driving 6 hours to the NC mountains. The trails were interesting but easy enough for a family group. No wonder Durham residents frequent this park. We followed up with a side trip through historic Hillsborough NC and scenic roads through Chatham County. Eco River State Park makes for a great daytrip outdoor adventure.

“Great family camping place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

My family of 7 went camping last weekend in the park. We chose, Cox Mountain Group Camp, one of the primitive camp sites to be close to nature. The site could hold as many as 26 people. It has two fire pits and a good supply of firewood. We hiked on the Cox Mountain Group Camp:trail for three hours before we set up the tents on the camp site. The weather was perfect After having hot dogs and hamburgers cooked over camp fire and sang hymns and talked, we settled in for a very peaceful evening under the stars.
