Quiet weekend

I stayed for 2 nights in the beginning of March. There weren’t many other campers because the forecast called for rain all weekend but ended up only raining for a few hours one night, lucky me! The whole park was pretty quiet, including the trails. There was a nice tent pad with a fire pit and picnic table, and a man came around bringing wood for $5 a bundle if you needed it. We had a quite a few deer passing close by through the night! Was a nice, quiet, relaxing weekend!

Random mountain in the middle of NC

Camping here is cheap and theres plenty to do if your outdoorsy there tons of hiking trails a plublic boat ramp to lake tillery fishing is allowed just a all around relaxing place

camping at Morrow

it’s pretty big with lots of sites to choose from!

Twice a visitor

I went for a weekend with my girlfriends and then went with three families and stayed at a group site. if you have enough people the group site is amazing. we were able to be on our own and had great facilities for showering. This is by far my favorite place to go camping.

Lots of activities for family camping

We had 4 families with children on 1 RV and 3 non-electric tent sites over Memorial Day weekend. Even though the park was at max capacity, it didn’t feel crowded or swarming. The facilities and activities at Morrow Mountain are awesome - a huge, clean pool; canoe rental from a well-maintained boathouse; hikes of various lengths; slightly aged but clean and cared for bath houses; and (our favorite) a gorgeous mountain top picnic shelter (A), which we rented due to a rainy forecast. Great place for family camping. Sites are nicely spaced, but by no means are they private or secluded. Staff were very friendly, but the no alcohol rule is a bummer. If you want to be alone in the woods, Morrow Mountain is not for you. Its also worth noting the climate is much more like south central NC (hot and super humId) and nothIng like the cool mountain air in Western NC. But if your looking for a fun, interactive family or group camping weekend, it’s the perfect spot!

Historical get away in the forest

The swaying of pine trees with the smell of the forest greets us at this easily accessible site in our motorhome. Electric and water hookups at our site, dump station available on the way out, camp host available. Picnic tables, fire pit available at our site. Lots of shade, plenty of trails that cover this State Park. The Kron house nearby, the swimming pool ( closed at time of our visit). The town of Albemarle 10 minutes away and Badin lake right down the mountain. Lots of history here just stop at the ranger station for information, maps and more.

Family friendly, clean, quiet considering close proximity of neighbors

Very family friendly camp ground. Sites are close together, but not too terrible. Sites include tent pad, fire ring with grate, table, lantern hook. Facilities we're kept nicely, host was very helpful and makes rounds in the evenings with firewood ($5 bundle). Hiked the trail head near the campground, to the river.. lovely hike NO RIVER ACCESS FOR FISHING though… Embankment is too steep, we learned this after the 2.5 mile hike with the kids… Went down the road to the lake the next day (they have boat rentals, though we didn't get one).

Labor Day Weekend

Nice camping…..especially if you plan on spending a majority of your time on the lake(s). Amenities were nice. Kids really loved the olympic-sized swimming pool. Great place for a short camping trip or if you are into boating/kayaking.

Visit to Morrow Mountain

My wife and I went for an overnight camping trip. We registered online for 2 nights but changed plans due to incoming rain. Unfortunately changing the registration online wasn't so simple and I ended up having to call in to make the change. The campsite was clean and well kept. Where we stayed there was a bath house nearby which was very convenient. The bath house was clean and had hot showers. We rode down to the river and walked along one of the trails as well as rented a canoe for a short paddle down the river. Overall the park was very nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay. I rated a 4 out of 5 due to the closeness of the campsite which led to a lot of noise from other campsites and the inability to easily change the registration.

Camping at Morrow Mtn

It's a great place to squeeze in a quick camping trip. It's not a place to camp for any length of time. This is more like self serve camping, primitive. Be careful for ticks are awful.
