My lofty goal of visting 40 NC state parks brought me here. It is a new park and I assume has some future plans. Not much here. However, there is a nice 2 mile loop trail.

Visited with a group from Leadership Rockingham. Nice shelter for family gatherings. Beautiful area by the river. Nice access for kayaking and tubing on the river. The staff is knowledgable on the nature surroundings and there to help!

Fishing, hiking, birding, and photography all in one place. The trail was well marked, and turtles in the pond were fun to watch. There were two shelters with well maintained facilities. We enjoyed the day.

There is a short trail around the lake, and a loop trail in the woods about 1.5 miles. The trails are easy and well maintained.
