State Park in Durham

Eno River State Park is a state park in northwest of Durham in Orange and Durham Counties that surrounds a stretch of its namesake river. The Eno River flows from northwest Orange County through Durham County for 33 miles before joining the Flat River to become the Neuse River and flow into Falls Lake. Native Americans lived along the river before the first European settlers came to the area. These settlers, who arrived in the mid 18th century, set up farms and mills along the river, and more than 30 mills were located along the Eno River at one time. The efforts to establish a park started in 1965, when the City of Durham proposed damming the river to build a reservoir. Concerned citizens rallied to save the river and in May of 1972, the state established a state park along the Eno River. The park opened in 1975 with more than 1,000 acres of land along the river.
