Nice park

I take my toddlers here a few times during the month. It's a nice clean park with a nice trail. It's great for Pokémon!

This park is huge and gives you the ability to walk the trails, if your needing an escape or some exercise you can definitely get it here. Tons of nature to see, accommodations for cook outs and picnics, restrooms, playgrounds, volleyball, etc... So many options within this park. Was a big hit when PokemonGo came out. Everyone was in the... More

Nice trail and the lake is across the street. You can play volleyball as well as take the kids to the playground. A nice big field is available for soccer or football. Great memories were made there. Would return

Lake Rim is just northwest of Fayetteville, NC. Very easy drive from the mall or hotels near All American Parkway. The trails around the lake are not graded, so you might need water shoes after a heavy rain. Very tranquil, lots of small animals and birds - and it is never too busy. Great place to go for an afternoon... More

I'm not sure why the pictures show the lake but this park is not on the lake. The lake is in fact across the highway and run by a different part of the government (state or federal). The park was nice and had a good variety of flora and fauna that was well labeled but again it is not on... More

We moved into a house a few miles away from Rim Lake and went to check it out ,The park is really nice but the lake is trashed. All along the trail are entire 12 packs of empty beer cans and other pieces of trash. It's too bad people don't pack out their mess, it really ruined it for us.

We spent several hours with the seniors fishing in the catfish ponds. The staff were very helpful and attentive to everyone's needs. The fishing equipment was furnished by the Park and the area was clean and well maintained. All in all, it was a very nice place to spend time in the outdoors with friends and family. Highly recommended as... More
