Lots of accessible hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous. The park also has a swimming pool, lake, fishing areas, bridle trails, and easy-to-navigate roads for drivers. The biggest plus? VERY clean bathrooms. One of the best NC state parks I've visited.

It depends on which site you choose. There are sites near the bathroom if you are able to get that site.
