North Carolina - Morrow Mountain State Park (2 photos) / by Dave Hileman

We  camped here for two nights as a prelude to our fall trip. We had added some gear and wanted to try it out in camping conditions. Worked great. We also added some new hooks and other things designed to make camping easier and all but one of those also worked well. Morrow Mountain State Park is in the central Piedmont portion of NC. It lies south of High Point and east of Charlotte near the town of Albemarle. The park is a decent size with a long lake on the northern and eastern boundaries. There are three camping areas but only one (C) has power. We stayed in site 100. It was short and steep. Easily the steepest site we have ever used. The front of our camper was on the ground to get level. People were nice but the park could use a bit of attention. It was a CCC built facility with beautiful stone buildings quarried on site but showing age. The pool is a work of art. We took three hikes all OK but not great partly because it was so beastly hot and humid. The cost to stay was reasonable about $20 a night for seniors. It suited for our purpose but I doubt we would go back, too close to actual mountains for the slight bumps at Morrow Mountain.

 Steep site easier to see here, along with the table, lantern hook, fire ring and the nicely spaced sites.
