Cliffs of the Neuse State Park has been an intergral part of the Wayne, Lenoir, and Duplin County communities since the end of the Second World War. Located adjacent to the banks of the Neuse River, above Seven Springs township, the park property was utilized by Native Americans for centuries and is just upriver from the original construction site of the ill-fated Civil War Confederate ironclad C.S.S. Neuse. Today the park features five hiking trails; a large picnic shelter; a 35-site campground; four primitive camping group sites; an 11-acre swim lake and concession area; and easy walking access to the banks of the Neuse River for anyone interested in fishing.
