Website: Falls Lake State Park (NC)
4201 Baptist Road (coordinates 36.0048, 78.7273)
Durham, NC 27703
Description: Large cg with paved roads and gravel sites, many of which are right on Falls Lake. Loops A and B are W/E(30A) while loop C is no hook up. There is decent separation with lots of trees. Big boat launch in the park along with a swim beach. We were waterfront on site B17 next to D&T for her big birthday.
Activities: The first weekend was a celebration of Tricia’s 50th birthday. Most of her family and close friends who live in the area came in either on Friday or Saturday. I hiked with many of them through the woods of the park. There are several clearly marked trails here but it was hot and humid in mid August. Several of them kayaked on the lake one day. After the party was over, Gin and I had several quiet days to relax and enjoy watching the squirrels run amongst the trees. We joined D&T and Kork on T’s birthday for supper at a Mexican restaurant. We even wandered over to Kork’s (D&T’s NC homebase) a couple of times, one was an early birthday party for Dan. Bike riding is doable in the cg but there are a few hills.
Trash and Recycle: There are several trash cans grouped together throughout the cg. Recycle cans (aluminum, glass and plastic) are located at the bathhouses and the dump station.
