Deep River Park and Camelback Truss Bridge is a 4-acre property that sits on the Chatham County-Lee County line and provides scenic views, wonderful picnicking spots, and canoeing and kayaking (primitive) access. Camelback Truss Bridge spans the deep river and was originally constructed in 1908. It underwent many reconstructions and renovations between then and 1992 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the North Carolina Transportation Hall of Fame. The bridge is lighted at night.

There are a couple of marked ADA-accessible parking spots near the front of the bridge.
