  • Just visited Fall Creek Falls section of the park, which consisted of a 300 yard trail to the falls. Trail continues past the falls to the headwaters of the Mayo River. The falls aren’t very large.....  more

  • May River State Park protects sections of the river from the Virginia state line to the confluence with Dan River in Mayodan. As one of the newest parks in the system, amenities are limited at this.....  more

  • Gorgeous natural setting, easily-navigably trails that are studiously maintained and provide ready access to the waterfall and the river into which it empties. Welcoming for families or solo visitors of all types and physical levels (*though there are no special provisions for the severely handi-capable). Peaceful, calm, quiet, relaxing, inspiring, serene, and - above all - memorable. Swimming/fishing/tubing access (*to/for the Mayo River itself) is easily found at multiple points along the trails and pathways leading to it (*and which are, thankfully, highly visible, clearly indicated, and easily followed). Picnic and grilling areas are also available for public use and enjoyment (*though there are, to my knowledge, only three such spaces available at the Deshazo Rd access point). Ample parking provided. No cost to enjoy the abundant natural beauty on offer here. Oh so very very highly recommended!
  • Nice place to get out and do a little walking. If you go to the waterfall section it’s an easy hike to it and it is really beautiful.
