We live in the Triangle, so we camped here many times before getting an RV. It's much more enjoyable with air conditioning! It was a humid summer day, but the spacious, shaded spots, many lakeside, provided a relief from the heat. Be sure to walk around your site since we were surprised to find a hidden beach which was the perfect spot for our Weim to play. There is a nice hiking trail at the park accessible from most sites. There is a small beach and playground for kids, as well as a boat launch. For mountain biking, you have to drive to Beaver Dam, but since it's a part of Fall Lake, you do not need to pay the $6-7 admission fee if you have the pass from Holly Point. The bathroom were typical state park bathroom. The only downside was the slanted site that made it difficult to maneuver for our ill-equipped minivan. Look at the pictures online to find a level site, and there are even double sites available. If you are traveling from out of town, check out nearby Wake Forest with a quaint little downtown. If feeling more adventurous, drive to downtown Raleigh or even Durham. Great location to explore or simply enjoy lake living.

“Great park, huge site and close to the boat dock. ”

This park is about 35 min from Raleigh, has power and water and some of the spots are really large. It's clean and well maintained with a nice mix of tent and RV sites. When you make your reservation, there's no office check in, you just go to your spot and there are places to buy wood for campfires. It's well shaded (on a 90 degree day we didn't need the AC on that night). I'd definitely recommend it for a place near the city to enjoy the outdoors!
