Very well kept and climbing go to

This park is clean, convenient, and offers really good single pitch climbing routes. Most camping sites are well made with pads, table, and fire pit. They are well shaded as well.

friendly camp host, good spot

The park was beautiful and the campground is set back in the woods, with plenty of space between the sites. Nice tent pad, picnic table, and fire ring. Restrooms were okay, typical state park campground (shower was slightly warm). The camp host was so nice- I didn’t have any cash, but he gave us a small bundle of wood for free. Great camp ground!

We loved Pilot Mountain State park!!

We had a great visit at this campground.The host were great when we were there. The bathrooms could use a facelift but they were clean.Its a great place to go hiking!!

Easy going, great for new campers

Simple camping area near the lower elevations with clean bathrooms and firewood available. Parking is sorta limited so getting there early is definitely recommended but the trails are great for all levels of experience. They also have a look out that you can drive to up near the top of the mountain

Quick visit

Monday, May 7, 2018- We were headed north and used PMSP as a overnight rest. We had a reservation that was not needed, the campground was 80% empty. Some of the driveways are not very flat and some are quite short so be careful which one you reserve. The views are awesome on a clear day. The leaves were just coming out, the campground would be very shady in a few more days. It is a very rocky area so be careful walking to the bathroom at night. The faciities were old but clean and shower was hot. Hope to visit again this fall.

Great hiking amd camping

Pilot Mountain is great small campround in Pinnacle NC. It has great hiking trails and you can even hike around the knob its highest point. there is only one electric site in the campground. the bathrooms are clean and the camp host are really nice. the rangers also patrol the park every few hours. lf they had more electic site i’d give 5 stars but overall a great getaway

breath taking views

Easy access we took our 3 and 4 year olds around the mountain where which were very kid friendly and the views were wonderful. Fun for the whole family

Great quiet camp sites and very well spread out.

Stayed here while working in the area. Very quiet and beautiful right by the mountain top

Great Climbing in the Piedmont

Living in Greensboro, Pilot Mountain State Park offers the perfect getaway from suburbia. Only a short drive away this is a perfect spot for a day trip or an overnight getaway. There is a small (49 spot) campground that offers tent pads, picnic tables and a grill. Most sites are shaded by tall hardwood trees and are nicely spaced out, however, the campground can get crowded in the summer and fall months. There are bathrooms, hot showers but no electrical hookups.

There is excellent hiking here and great climbing, too. Weather you're looking for some easy top rope climbing or more challenging lead climbing, you can find it here. Do exercise caution when on the cliffs above, as I have experienced on several occasions things being dropped from above with climbers below (always wear a helmet). Be sure to read all the posted information on the information board before climbing.

Excellent climbing and sightseeing!

I've been here several times, and it's one of my favorite places for toprope climbing in the area. If you're not a climber, the views are still worth the drive. While here, be sure to visit nearby Mt. Airy for some old school Andy Griffith sightseeing.
