Guess it's been a while since Yours Truly traveled across the river on Buffaloe Road. The mobile home park that was right there on the left is no longer right there on the left! The roads are still present, and a mail building is still standing. There's fencing on the Buffaloe Road side, and presumably around the entire property. Have heard a residential development was planned for the 48-acre space. Tax records say the thing closed in June 2010, but it sounds like it was some years earlier. See more photos, plus some aerial shots from Wake County. It's also worth a look using Bing Maps and their bird's eye view.

Mike, I love the “spelunking” missions you take. Reminds me of the trips into the woods when I was a young lad with my buddies, lurking through abandoned farm houses and stuff. If you ever want a tag-along, I’m in!!

Get enough people and we can rent a bus. The Legeros Reality Tour.

I lived in Riverwalk for quite a few years. Never the greatest place.

My mom lived there during Fran. I was very scared that she would have lots of damage since her trailer backed up to the river. Nothing. No damage and after looking for her for hours…she was eating at Dennys. I liked the place. Pretty and quiet.
