This lovely State Park was developed after a dam was built in the area. The dam was built from 1916 to 1923. Much later in 1987, the creation of this park occurred with many hiking trails and camping. The Park’s name sake is James B. Duke, the founder of Duke Energy.
Let’s take a visit.
Other views.. The Park lies at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Linville Gorge Wilderness area, (a future blog).
