Need to shake off the city and recharge the ol’ batteries? Don’t want to drive far? Falls Lake State Recreation area is a good choice, located right outside of the cities of Raleigh and Durham, NC. With hundreds of campsites of all kind, including tent, RV, and a good number of primitive backpacking sites, there is something for everyone. You also get all of the water fun that a good lake can offer, as well as trails galore to be explored, including part of the Mountains-to-Sea trail. So bring your boat, bike, or boots, (or all three!) and come on down to Falls Lake to start recharging.
