Eno River State Park now open   

Although we have opened our gates, the following cautions apply: The riverside trails have been under water for days. The water is receding, but these trails are exceedingly muddy, with lots of debris. We do not reccomend hiking on these trails. The trails that do not run beside the river will be in much better condition. Please be careful while in the park!

Eno River State Park

Eno River State Park—like its namesake—flows near urban areas of Durham and Orange counties with five scattered access areas, each just minutes from town amenities. The Eno River’s waters roll past mature forests, historic mill and home sites and river bluffs covered with flowering shrubs and across fords used by early settlers. The park offers nearly 30 miles of trails along a swift, shallow stream that’s popular with anglers, photographers and sightseers. Backcountry camping at individual sites and group campsites is available but all equipment must be carried in. Canoeing and kayaking are permitted but sometimes difficult due to shallow water.
