I visited ERSP yday with my dogs and kids. We had such a good time. Our favorite was the quarry. It was big enough and not crowded at all. Parking is a little tough at the quarry. You might have to wait for a spot. The little rapids area at Fews Ford was very cute and fun for the little... More

The hike was easy, the scenery was excellent, the trails were well maintained and there was ample parking. At Bobbitt Hole, we spent some time wading in the river which was quite relaxing. Definitely worth spending a few hours if you... More

The quarry is a wonderful swimming hole! Jump from high rocks or just float around and relax. Bring a life-jacket and/or flotation device. Once you move out into the water...you will NOT be able to touch the bottom. Use extra caution when bringing children.

A great nature park to picnic. Walk in about 1 mile to a hidden quarry and swim in clear water and cool off on a hot day.

Went to the annual Eno River Festival and had a great time. Under normal times it is a pretty park along the river. Swimming allowed with nice short hikes. Early July they raise money with a tremendous festival. There are 3 major stages with various types of music, craft booths, food trucks, fun activities for kids, and informational booths on... More

Cool place. The water is not clean as you might expect. But it's relaxing. It was nice to walk and explore it. The trees and the sound of water make it beautiful. Recommended!

Great Park, take the family or go for a hike. Extensive trails and levels of hiking and site seeing available. Just a well thought out park executed nicely. Well worth a drive

This park has great trails, a really cool suspension foot-bridge and some neat historic pieces to see. My kids loved walking the trails and getting in the Eno River. You will enjoy being so far out while being so close to town.
