Beautiful, of course. But if you plan to camp in late September or October, be forewarned of the STINKBUG PLAGUE. They are everywhere and get into everything. It was impossible to enjoy the camping. My advice is to make it a day trip and avoid camping. Good luck............

OMG, I haven't been to these mountains in 20 years. Wanted to do something to clear my mind and just relax. If you are in the Carolinas and want to do something out of the ordinary, pack a lunch or in my case we stopped at KFC and picked up a bucket of chicken with some fixins of course, dropped the top on the convertible and headed for the mountains. Thank God the weather was beautiful today. This short trip was what I needed to end my week out of work, will return on Monday with a clear and relaxed mind.

Great State Park! My 4 year old, wife and I were there for a 2 night tent camp. When I arrived the visitor center was closed. (Even though the sign on the door said they close at 4:45 and it was 4:35.) Luckily a park ranger pointed me in the right direction for check in. Camping area was clean. Bathrooms were clean. My wife and I hiked Hanging Rock Trail, Wolf Rock Trail, Chestnut Oak Nature Trail, and part of Mountains-to-Sea Trail. We were able to see Hidden Falls, Window Falls and Hanging Rock. I will definitely go there again.

Great little hike. It wasn't too strenuous and it wasn't easy. I hope that makes sense. Make sure you check out all of the Falls while you are there! My favorite of the waterfalls was Window Falls and Lower Cascade Falls. There are lots of steps and somewhat of an elevation change.

Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking or swimming, Hanging Rock State Park has a little bit of everything. They have great trails that offer amazing views of the surrounding foothills of Virginia and North Carolina. Great service with plenty of staffed rangers around and indoor restrooms that make it convenient for travelers.
