The park itself is good with a nice picnic area and info center, however the park is also the trail head for the new greenway along the river - about 3 miles of great greenway along the river!

We live very close to the lake and visit various spots often for fishing, kayaking, walking and relaxing. There are many spots where the bigger power boats can't go and even then the lake is always just grand.

I've been to this park at least three times and each time I took a different exit from Creedmore Road/NC50
The last exit was one that contained dedicated bike tracks, which was great as I'd tried cycling around the largest part of the park on the second exit previously, but that is more geared toward boating and picnics and maybe camping.
Had a great time on what is a nice little technical track, it would be great if it were a bit more hilly, but it's still a great workout as the forest tries to get you off your bike in a few parts.
Wasn't the cruise in the park that my wife had imagined, but I had a great time (and that's what counts, right!?)

Have been here through many seasons. Great place to have a picnic, take a hike or just a nap.
