Beautiful shady place for a picnic. The creek is lovely and well worth taking your shoes off to Wade in. Picnic tables will need table cloths... Pack a few extra table cloths for the benches too (being shady had some cons when it comes to leaf litter on tables) They have two pit type toilets. These are often wet so even if there is Toilet paper it is wet so carry some tissue in and expect to share the experience with mossies and spiders. You will need to walk all the way to the last picnic table on the creek to get to the best spot to enter the water.
Always a beautiful place to have a family picnic or reunion. There is plenty of space and picnic tables along with grills for cook outs. Small and large creeks to crawdad hunt or wade in. You can go hiking as well. The picnic ground is part of the pisgah national forest, if I'm not mistaken. It's a great escape into nature.
