  • Small park by the Yadkin River...Local legend has it that Daniel Boone used a Cave in the Park by the River to sleep in on his travels. Nice Walking Trails and observation decks. Nice Shelter for Pic-...  read more »
  • Don't go at dawn or dusk - way too many mosquitos! Very relaxing and beautiful trails. Also has tent camping available, which I plan to try sometime. 
  • Live in Davidson County and yet every once in a while a hidden gem reveals itself - this is one of those - history and nature excellent!! 
  • Went camping here this weekend. Clean restrooms, well stocked with supplies and with hot and cold running water and flush toilets- real luxury for a primitive or semi-primitive campground. Tent pads were reasonably level, although a couple were washing out and needed repairs. Campsites were a little too close together for comfort, but since I was the only one camping there, it wasn't a problem. The only drawback was that the campsites were 100 yards from the parking area and down a somewhat steep hill. Lugging tent, cooler and equipment up and down that hill was not a lot of fun. Easier access would make for a much nicer experience. I didn't do much hiking because it was blistering hot when I was there, but the few trails I covered were cleared and mostly well maintained, though a few steps near the river were beginning to wash out and in need of some repair. The park ranger was friendly and helpful, even offered to bring a load of firewood to my campsite. All in all, it was a nice experience and I will definitely return.
  • Great trails!!:) awesome signs showing plant species and names. Very beautiful and quiet!!:) Lots of bugs so bring your spray!!!
  • Great trails to hike. They have made tremendous strides in improving this park.
  • A cool piece of history! Also had the largest tree in NC! 😃
