  • This is a great place to relax and enjoy a calm Kayaking experience. We rented ours from Paddle Creek, and took the marked water trail. We heard screeching Herons, and saw turtles. The atmosphere was....  more »
  • There is a 1+ mile "trail" marked with numbered buoys (#1 - #73). A lot of trees, bushes, some insects (e.g. dragon flies - but we saw no mosquitos) and the sun shines through a lot of places but not....  more »
  • Kayaking at Robertson Millpond with Boating Club friends (Raleigh Sail & Power Squadron). Great place to go on a summer morning. It is shady and cool under the Cyprus trees. 🤗  more »

  • Beautiful place to kayak! Lots of wildlife to see. The trail is marked well and takes you through groves of trees and some more open areas. Thoroughly enjoyed my trip and I spent about three hours following the trail at a rather leisurely pace. Make sure you are prepared (pack water/snacks) as there are no facilities there just a boat dock, they do have rentals available some parts of the year.
  • A hidden treasure tucked away but easy to get to. Can't wait for the new docks and walk ways. A beautiful preserve.
  • Wake county’s only swamp! Great launch. There are markers so you can find your way in and out. I recommend only using half of your paddle if you are kayaking because it is very tight through the cypress trees in areas. It is very pretty but a short paddle.
  • This is a no frills park at the moment. They do have a boat ramp, no gas engines, and a picnic shelter with two tables. No worries if you do not have a boat as there are rentals available by Paddle Creek, for a reasonable fee and you have to sign a waiver. The rental & waiver signing can be done online at the Paddle Creek website. Currently, there is no building for the staff so they are currently outside under a canopy. All were very nice and informative and answered all of our questions. There was some construction equipment at the park and I assume, as I did not inquire, that it is for the continued work on the park. We definetly plan to return. It was easy to get to and so amazing to have this lovely piece of nature so close to highway 64.
  • Park in progress... Currently no restrooms or playground, but a nice new dock & a lovely kayaking "trail" through the trees. Covered area with picnic tables. Peaceful & lovely!
