My lofty goal of visting 40 NC state parks brought me here. It is a new park and I assume has some future plans. Not much here. However, there is a nice 2 mile loop trail.

There is a short trail around the lake, and a loop trail in the woods about 1.5 miles. The trails are easy and well maintained.
