Everyone In North Carolina Should Visit This One Natural Stunning Natural Retreat

The Eno River flows from the northwest starting in Orange County, NC into Durham County to join the Flat River and eventually empty into Falls Lake. The State Park that bears its name encompasses over 4,200 acres along the river and is part of the larger 7,002 acres of conservation lands in the Eno River Basin.

The state park was formed in 1973. A dam had been proposed to create a new reservoir for the Durham area. The proposed dam would have flooded the area the park now occupies. A group of concerned local citizens formed the Eno River Association to preserve the natural landscape and history surrounding the river.
