This park, located on the Neuse River, provides some great river views, fishing, hiking and accommodations for horse trailers. The bathrooms are new and were clean as were the grounds. Bar B Que grills available.

Great nature walk off the beaten path. Easy to get to, but rough road driving into. (Gravel, not very well maintained) Over all, on a nice cool day, it's a pleasant way to spend time with nature. Don't forget the bug repellant!!
