Water Hydrants Off for the Winter   

The water hydrants are being turned off for the winter at Fews Ford and Cole Mill Accesses. 
Fews Ford campers can still get water outside the restroom building, but
Piper Creek campers must bring any needed water with them, as there is none available at that access.

Camping

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT AMENITIES:

Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to see photos of campsites; check availability and fees; find out whether a specific site is wheelchair accessible, has access to water, bathouses or pit toilets, or has electric hookup; and learn other important information.

 

Find solitude and peace among tall trees and a symphony of forest creatures camping at Eno River State Park. The park has backcountry camping available to families, individuals and groups at the Fews Ford and Cole Mill accesses. All sites require hiking in and supplies must be carried in. There is no potable water source at the sites.

 

Backpack camping

At Fews Ford Access, follow a secondary trail off the Fanny's Ford Trail to reach the Fanny's Ford Campground, 1 mile from the parking lot. There are five sites on a hill a short distance from the river.

At Cole Mill Access follow the Bobbitt Hole Trail to the Piper Creek Campground about 1.2 miles from the parking lot. Five sites are near Piper Creek and a short walk to the river. Each site has a pad for tents, fire ring, lantern hook and bench. A pit toilet serves each campground.

 

Group camping

The Cox Mountain Group Camp is a short distance from the Cox Mountain Trail and the suspension bridge across the river and is set on a wooded ridge near the river. The hike is 3/8 mile from the parking lot. Maximum accommodation is 26 people.

The Buckquarter Creek Group Camp has two sites near the junction of Buckquarter and Martin Cabin creeks, just off the Ridge Trail. The hike is 1.2 miles from the parking lot. Each site accommodates a maximum of 15 people.

All group sites have tent pads, picnic tables, fire rings with benches and a pit toilet. All tents must fit on the pads. Reservations are required.

 

NOTE – Gate access for campers:

Park gates are closed and locked at posted closing times for your protection. There will be no exiting or entering the gates after the closing time. All visitors who are not spending the night need to be out by closing time. If you leave the park and do not return before closing time, you will not be able to re-enter. Check with the park office during office hours for the after-hours emergency phone number.
