Where are we going today?

Enjoy the gifts of nature surrounded by the remnants of a once mighty range of peaks. Upon first encounter, the Uwharrie Mountains may seem like a mountainous mirage. These steep, rugged hills unusual topography for the area—form a stark contrast with the rolling countryside of the piedmont plateau. Recreation is plentiful in and around the waters of Lake Tillery and the Yadkin / Pee Dee River. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes. Nature lovers can pick from miles of trails to travel on foot or horseback. And for those who want to stay and take it all in, cabins and camping are available. There's really only one word to describe Morrow Mountain State Park: variety. Use the family car or RV, horseback or canoe, put on a pair of hiking boots or dip bare feet in the river, or bait your favorite fishing pole a visit to Morrow Mountain lets you choose your kind of adventure.

    Husband and I camped there four nights in October. Loved it! The campgrounds were very well maintained, the bath house in our loop was very clean with roomy showers. The Wildlife Rangers drove through the grounds often, which is a good feeling when you're camping during the week and there are very very few others around. The campsites are level and roomy, each with a fire pit and grill, as well as a very heavy picnic table made from recycled products - easily cleaned, doesn't rot, and doesn't tip over!

    Campground was very nice, clean spot with fire ring and grill. Rented canoes for cheap at the lake area. Only issue was no good spot to go swimming in the park. Otherwise great experience.

    Excellent , save for the crowds. Will no longer visit on weekends during the warm season due to the constant interruptions.

    It's an all round great park. It is an excellent camping spot. We go there all the time they even have a small lake!

The Wildlife Rangers drove through the grounds often, which is a good feeling when you're camping during the week and there are very very few others around. The campsites are level and roomy, each with a fire pit and grill, as well as a very heavy picnic table made from recycled products - easily cleaned, doesn't rot, and doesn't tip over! We had electricity at our site, with water very close by. It was a short drive within the park to put in our little boat on Lake Tillery, or under 15 minutes to put in at Badin Lake. We couldn't find one negative thing about this trip - except that it was too short! Can't wait to return.
