I love fishing and its a great place to go by yourself. Always fishing from the pier. If you don't like fishing you can go swimming or play in the lake. Don't be surprised if a deer or two run across the road.

We came across a little gem in the way of local nature outings at RollingView Falls Lake State Park in Durham. We had no idea it was there. It offers trails and boating with beautiful views. HOWEVER, no matter how badly you want the Hershey's...More

We needed a campground close to Cary and this one seemed to have reasonable reviews. It's a state park but we based on perception on stateparks in other states. Our mistake. It was ok but the bathrooms were disgusting. We arrived on a monday after...More

The best Park close to Durham. There is a fee but worth the $7. Fishing pier, swimming with a sandy beach and the trails are easy to manage.

Well kept park. Clean facilities. Nice sunny open spots for cold weather and long spacious wooded lots for shade. Nice fishing piers and marina next door that also rents boats, kayaks, paddle boards. Great trails connecting various areas and park loops. Great find and getaway!

We camped here for the first time with our teen children in Sept this year and returned this past week for a romantic anniversary getaway. Each time was thoroughly enjoyable. Many campsites in B loop are just above the lake & have a water view...More

We were disappointed with our experience. The bath houses are in desperate need of upgrades. It's a shame because the campsites are very nice. I would give it a 4 or a 5 if they would just update restrooms and showers.

My boyfriend and I tent camped here for our first time ever camping. Great sites and nice bath house. We had some unruly people next to us, but the rangers came and immediately corrected the situation which led to a very nice night for us.
