Eno River State Park

Partnering with the Nature Conservancy, the State of North Carolina, the City of Durham, and Durham and Orange Counties, the Eno River Association was able to create the Eno River State Park in 1973.  Since then, the Association has worked tirelessly to expand the Park in order to protect the natural and cultural heritage of the Eno River and to ensure that the public will be able to enjoy it for future generations.

The Park is currently composed of more than 4,200 acres of protected natural area that provide vital water quality protection, wildlife habitat, and preservation of historic resources. In addition, five access areas – The Cabe Lands, Cole Mill, Few’s Ford, Pleasant Green, and The Pump Station – and over 24 miles of trails offer entry into this largely unspoiled river environment.
