Great spot, really calm and quiet and right on the lake. Perfect for non-partying types (no alcohol allowed). Showers, bathrooms, trash, fire pit, and grill all available. The host was professional and kind to us, even brought us some extra fire wood.
Great spot there’s some open areas to camp before you get to the water. You need a truck or something big to get down to the water unless the re-did the road. There’s a few campsites surrounded by trees but also a large open area that can hold multiple vehicles
Awesome location, very remote and the sites are Huge so no need to worry about a neighbor being close. I stayed at site 11 easy access to the water and great views. Lost of fishing and hiking paths close by. Great camp overall. Highly recommend.
This is a great place for quiet, no frills camping. There are 7 camping areas, 5 of which have camping shelters. Sites 3 & 4 only have picnic tables and trash barrels. All sites except for site 7 are easily accessible with most vehicles. Site 7's entryway was washed out and had some large holes that would benefit from higher clearance and 4WD.
We stayed in site 1B and had no issue finding a spot by the water in our 22' travel trailer. Sites are well dispersed and we only saw a few other campers all weekend. We will definitely stay here again.
The tent sites nice and clean and level. The host drove through many many times in the 3 days I was there. Bathrooms are what you can expect from a state park clean with little bugs here and there but nothing you can do about that in the middle of the woods. Overall great place good four-wheeling and nice accommodations
There is a gate that opens during hunting season which adds more camping sites, but the only pit toilet is at the entrance. Heavy rains flood several of the sites. Many people come just to hike the trails that cross nearby, there are more cars than campers.
Morrow Mountain State Park is a family camping ground for all ages and has an in ground swimming pool plus a boat launch. I enjoyed tent camping with my family and fishing on the lake. There is a large public swimming pool and each camping area has toilet and shower facilities. You can burn fire wood in pits and there are grills for charcoaling BBQs. The highlight to a early morning wake up are having deer walking through your camping site. There was a loud whipperwill sounding off with echoes coming from the hillsides. It is a first come first serve and there is a small fee collected by a Park Ranger.
These lakeshore sites within the forest were simply stunning. We spent three nights enjoying our campground on Badin Lake. The sites were large and could accommodate most sizes of trailers in addition to tents. No hook-ups, so BYOS (bring your own solar). Water spigots are scattered throughout the campground.
The bathrooms are perfect for our pandemic times because they are single use, both toilets and showers. We found them clean and comfortable, and even heated during the early spring -- not something we expect for less than $20 a night. They take reservations, but could easily accommodate walk-ins as well.
While the area offers so many different kinds of recreation, the Uwharries are known for OHVing and can get very busy during the summer. There are trails for days within these stunning mountains that serve as the foothills for the Appalachians. Horse trail riding is second on the list of activities within the park judging by the number of trails. Sharing these trails with horses isn’t difficult if you’re just hiking, but remember to be kind to those riders since horses can be skittish. Moutain biking is also not to be left off the list, and there are some great trails through here as well, that you don’t have to share with the motorized enthusiast. Boating is another great way to enjoy the lake, we kayaked right from our campsite and didn’t experience a lot of motorized traffic.
If you’re looking for a place to get away from your busy life and reconnect with nature, Yates Place is perfect for you! This dispersed camping location is fee and reservation free, which makes it a great place for a cost efficient & spontaneous adventure. Make sure you bring a car that’s suited for off-road travel because the path to get to the camp sites is very bumpy. Also make sure to bring your own food, there are not a lot of places nearby to eat. Every camp site comes equipped with a fire pit, so make sure to pack those marshmallows! My only complaint is that the restrooms are not very clean, but using the facilities while camping in the wilderness should be the least of your worries. I would definitely recommend giving this secluded camping spot a try!
