Yates Place Camp was an old home site, but now serves as an attractive destination for tent camping. A vaul toilet, tables, and grills are available at the site.
Yates Place Camp is located near the Uwharrie Trail, a 20-mile National Recreation hiking trail. This camp is also popular with deer hunters and hiking groups that use it as a base camp or staging area.
I’ve gone here a number of times and it is great for its convenience. You can drive up to a parking lot, walk into the woods and set up shop. There are sites at the parking lot and also plenty of people just walk down the gravel road and shoot off into the woods. You’re close enough to the cars that you can bring more. Will definitely be back!
Free camping site until 2020! You can pull in to spots or park your car and hike to one. There are a lot of great spots.
