Events and Programs

Eno River State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Join a Park Ranger at the main parking lot of Fews Ford Access for a brief hike down to the wilderness cabin, followed by a sing-a-long of songs about the great outdoors and the animals that live there.  Including a one mile round trip hike (total distance) this program will last 60-90 minutes.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
