The Eno River is a chain of rapids, pools, and rippling water meandering through a forest on a bed of rock. The valley of the river is narrow and steep walled.
Archaeology tells us that men first walked trails along the Eno long before recorded history. Indians of the Eno, Shakori, and Occoneechee tribes, lived along the river when the first European explorers passed through. Some of the tribes merged in the late 17th century and established a village near present day Durham.
Settlers moved in during the mid 1700's to set up farms and gristmills. More than 30 mills were located along the length of the Eno.
One of those farms included the restored Piper-Cox House which is also within the park. It gives you a glimpse into pioneer life in the early 1800's, with some display information on mills.

With help from the Eno River Association and The Nature Conservancy, the park opened with more than 1,000 acres of land.
Together with the adjoining West Point on the Eno city park, the two parks preserve over 9 miles (15 km) of the river in its natural habitat. Eno River State Park provides opportunities for camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing and picnics. There are many educational activities scheduled each month.
