This park was established in 1945 and the facilities were built soon afterwards and definitely show their age. The commode stalls are very narrow(a problem for my large girth), sit very low and one of the three stalls was broken. Showers are small and have no hanging hooks but do have an abundance of hot water. Cleanliness of the bathrooms is poor at best. There are 35 sites without water, sewer or electricity. There are several potable water spigots where you can fill tanks throughout and one dump station. The sites were not designed for modern campers and therefore some are small. Sites 1,2,3,6,7,9,10, 11,12,13, 14, 17, 21, 23,25, 26,34 would all be very difficult to get a pop-up and vehicle on. Not that the remaining sites are all that great. The better sites are between 15 and 33. Unfortunately, for some reason they have recently removed all underbrush from the area(tick control??) and now the sites are open. Some of the sites are also very unlevel from front to back. There is a new Visitor Center built at the end of 2011. A lake for swimming with life guard and boat rentals. There is also the Neuse River for fishing and canoeing/kayaking. Several trails along the cliff top and leading down to the river. Within 30 miles of the park are several historic attractions such as the birthplace of Governor C.B. Aycock near Fremont, Old Waynesborough Village in Goldsboro, numerous Civil War battlefields sites including Bentonville, Goldsboro Bridge, Engagement at Whitehall in Seven Springs and numerous sites in and around Kinston including the C.S.S. Neuse.
