Falls Lake State Park (Rolling View CG), Durham, NC

Date of Stay:  Wednesday September 21 – Saturday September 24, 2016 (3 nights)

Rate:  $23/night during week, $27/night during weekend and holidays

Website:  Falls Lake State Park (NC)
   4201 Baptist Road (gps 36.0048,  78.7273)
   Durham, NC 27703

Description:  Initial review here.  Paved roads with gravel sites of W/E (30A) in loops A and B.  Loop C is no hook-ups.  We stayed on site B36 in the woods.  We thought the shade would help to keep us cooler but we were parked under a hickory tree and the nuts were loud when they fell on us.  The bath house still needs cleaning and a fresh coat of paint would help too.  The whole park could use some TLC (like fresh gravel on the sites maybe).

Trash and Recycle:  Several trash cans in each loop for garbage with recycle (aluminum, glass and plastic) cans at the bath house and dump station.

Activities:  We had sped up the last couple weeks of our summer travels to get back to visit with family in NC when we realized that if we traveled a little farther that usual, we could surprise Dan in Youngsville for his birthday.  This cg is about 40 minutes away from Korkie’s Kampground (driveway) where D and T stay to visit their folks in NC.  We enjoyed time with them and Kork.  She is so nice to open up her house like she does.  It was great to all sit outside in her screened porch looking out over her back yard and pond.
