Mayo River State Park

Envisioned as a riverine park along the Mayo River corridor from Virginia to the Town of Mayodan, Mayo River State park is under development, but offers basic state park amenities on the 400-acre site of the former Mayo Park, a historic and prized community gathering place. The centerpiece of the park is a restored pavilion-style picnic shelter designed by renowned architect Antonin Raymond. This is flanked by picnic grounds, small fishing ponds and a growing network of hiking trails. Rangers offer free interpretive programs at the park and outreach programs at area locations can be arranged. Paddling opportunities on the mild whitewater Mayo River are available from local outfitters.
