Eno River State Park Reviews
강을 따라 산책하기 좋습니다. 강에 서 있는 나무 흔들다리는 꽤 재미 있습니다. 발걸음을 내디딜 때마다 그 흔들림이 좋습니다. 공원에 진입할 때 도로에서 사슴 가족 5마리를 만났습니다. 무척 기분 좋은 산책이었습니다. more »It is a great place to take a walk along the river.

Eno is like my secret garden. Even when every parking space is filled it is still not crowed and is peaceful. I love listening to to river and even if its cold or snowing sitting in my car and being here. Its gorgeous. The wildlife is great too. I enjoy hiking and people watching.
Absolutely my favorite place to spend the day. We visit several times a week. Easy to pop by for a hour or stay for the whole day. Everyone cleans up after themselves and is respectful. Really a wonderful, beautiful place. Fantastic for all ages. Be sure to bring some shoes you can wear in the water if you plan to swim.
