Great local spot

Great campground. Rates have gone up to $20 a night as of 4/1/21

Clean, safe, fun!

Super nice owners, we had a tent camp party of 10 and really enjoyed the time there. Ice and firewood are available onsite, as well as some general store goods like sunscreen, t-shirts, etc. The bathroom/shower facilities were excellent. The sites are clean and clear.

Super close to the gorge as well, easy drive access. Also highly recommend the only diner there "down the street" (a stone building, iirc)  at the crossroads - excellent burger and fries for takeout if you're in the mood.

One note - this is indeed a "family" campground, so taking our college-aged group there with a 10pm curfew was a bit rocky but it worked out fine.

Returned to our Roots

My husband and I started our camping life with Bear Den in 2004 and we decided to come back in our own camper this time. The roads in are very narrow and winding. There were some pretty hairy parts coming in. Thankfully we made it without too many issues. Our site had some great views but mostly because the other sites were empty. The sites are very close together but if the foliage was filled in it would likely not seem as close.

The weather was extremely cold and we ended up losing our heat so had to cut the trip short but we had a nice time otherwise. We will definitely be back if we have more time. The hassle of getting in and out of the campground and each space isn’t something we want to do for a weekend trip.

Pleasantly Surprised

We stayed here for a weekend in March 2021 and were surprised at how much we liked it. There are lots of trails close to the campground with one around a lake and a stream off of it. Facilities were very well maintained. Only downside not all lots level and some stumps that were hard to manuver around to park and to leave spot.

Picturesque and spacious

My husband and I spent Thankgiving at one of the Table Rock backcountry sites and couldn't have loved it more. Our site at picturesque views of the mountains and a convenient fire ring.

Best Primitive Camping

Some of the most inspiring and challenging hikes are to be had here! The entire gorge is hikeable and you can even spend days walking through it on a backpacking trip. This campground is where I spend all of my serious summer camping and hiking. There's campsites for car camping or park in a designated parking lot and hike on in to the wilderness! Be prepared to see the most stars you've ever seen in your life!

Very Nice

This campground is a very nice place. Although it rained the entire weekend we still had a great time. The staff is excellent. When we first arrived, they escorted us to our site. When we got to our site, the previous tenants dumped their raw sewage on the ground. The guy who escorted us immediately had someone come and clean it up and they even snaked the sewage pipe just in case. Our site backed up to the creek which was amazing! We went in the fall so all the activities were done for the year. We will defiantly be back in the summer time!

Overall a Good Experience

Took the new pop-up to Kings Mountain State Park this past weekend and had a great time. The sites are pretty close together, but we still had adequate room to spread out. Each site has water, 30 amp electric, a picnic table, and a fire pit ring. Our site was a pull-through, but the majority of them are back-in. Throughout the campground, AT&T had great cell coverage, but Verizon was non-existent. Our site was a stone's throw from the bath/shower house, which was clean and recently updated. When not in the side, a short walk takes you to the Trading Post, a small store selling firewood ($7), ice, souvenirs, and sundries. Next to that is a large playground connected to a pavilion. A short 2 minute drive (or longer hike if you are feeling ambitious) takes you to the Kings Mountain Military Museum where you can learn of all things historical to Kings Mountain. There's a small model village and numerous other attractions to view while at the park as well. Overall this was a great experience. It's close to home for us, and the price was fantastic ($30 nightly). Let me know if you have any other questions!

Great Little Park

This is a beautiful state park located outside of Morganton, NC - definitely off the beaten path. The family campground is heavily invested in, and you can tell, it's very nice. There are only a handful of sites with electric hookups - no water or sewage hookups available. All sites have a gravel pad and parking for 2 vehicles. The centrally located shower/bathroom building is brand new, and has a wash bin sink on the back of it with hot water to do dishes if needed. From the family campground you can hike to the trailhead for the waterfall trail, which is the most popular one. It continues in a loop, or you can do an out and back if you don't feel like making the strenuous climb to the top. Some of the terrain on the trail can be a bit dicey, so definitely for the more agile. Half of the sites at the campground are adjacent to a trout stream, which is a gorgeous place to fish, cool your drinks, or string up your hammock. The rangers are very attentive to your needs and make rounds throughout the day delivering firewood ($5 a bundle) and just checking in to make sure everyone is good to go. I wouldn't go here with anything larger than a travel trailer - 26 ft or so, but it's definitely a great place to camp. Also, there is NO cell service from any provider, but Wifi is available at the visitors center (1 mile drive from campground).
