  • Eno is like my secret garden. Even when every parking space is filled it is still not crowed and is peaceful. I love listening to to river and even if its cold or snowing sitting in my car and being here. Its gorgeous. The wildlife is great too. I enjoy hiking and people watching.
  • Absolutely my favorite place to spend the day. We visit several times a week. Easy to pop by for a hour or stay for the whole day. Everyone cleans up after themselves and is respectful. Really a wonderful, beautiful place. Fantastic for all ages. Be sure to bring some shoes you can wear in the water if you plan to swim.
