    Really nice education center, lovely trails and very very photographic spots in this little park. You can spend a couple hours here easily. It would be a nice spot for a picnic.  more »

    There is a dock overlooking the water that I always go to lay on for a bit. The mill itself is spectacular with the waterway clearly visible. Many people go here to take pictures.  more »

    I stopped by this park with my mom and my mother-in-law last weekend when we were in the Raleigh area. Unfortunately we arrived right before the visitor center closed, but from the minute we spent in ...  more »

    Not handicap friendly. Had a horrible experience because it is not handicap friendly. No access for wheelchairs to the mill. The areas that are close to park by the mill are gated and locked. Will be looking into how they can defy the Americans with disabilities act and get away with it that is for sure

    “Beautiful spot” Yates Mill is a great little park of Lake Wheeler Road. We've taken pictures out here the past few years, but it's also fun to go out and walk around. The waterfall near the old mill is great. Beautiful spot in Raleigh.

    Great and beautiful place to enjoy nature. My wife and kids love it. The mill is a beautiful site. The center is clean and so are the public bathrooms.

    No dog allowed. Park is wonderful, I can understand they don't want poop everywhere but there's so many parks that allow dogs that have no problems.

    Amazing place to walk around and take pictures! Love the reflections off the water!

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
