| ||One of the oldest bridges in the Sanford area goes over Deep River from Lee to Chatham County. This bridge is called Camelback Bridge and is named for the hump shape the steel trusses on the bridge make. The bridge was erected in 1910. |
|There is a small park st the site of this bridge called Deep River park. There are a couple of picnic shelters at the park. The shelter on the right is designed to accommodate wheelchairs. || |
| ||The scenery around the bridge is very lush and green. This park is frequently used as a put in and take out point for local canoers and kayakers. The park is also used by local fishermen (and women) as a fishing spot. |
|Camelback Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Find out more details of the bridge: Bridge facts || |
| ||We had a beautiful view of the Deep River from the bridge on the day of our visit. To get to the park, take Cumnock Road North from US 421. Follow the road until you cross the Deep River and the park will be on your left. |
