Envisioned as a riverine park along the Mayo River corridor from Virginia to Mayodan, the park is under development, but offers basic state park amenities on the 400-acre site of the former Mayo Park, a historic and prized community gathering place.

A growing network of easy trail loops that are family-friendly introduces the rolling piedmont terrain and diverse forest habitats of this park.

The centerpiece of the park is a restored pavilion-style picnic shelter designed by renowned architect Antonin Raymond. This is flanked by picnic grounds, small fishing ponds and a growing network of hiking trails. Rangers offer free interpretive programs at the park. Paddling opportunities on the mild whitewater Mayo River are available from local outfitters.
