  • Very nice State Park and Campground areas. "Fairly" remote location. If you have Verizon Cell Service, it'll be intermittent at best. Voice is more consistent. Data - if you get lucky.

  • The campsite's are spaced nicely. The bathhouse is clean and plenty of shower stalls. The star attraction is canoeing the pond. Definitely coming back.
  • A great learning and recreational opportunity tucked away in the inner coastal plain of Gates, NC.
  • I had a great time at the park I love to excitement in the team
