Great little NC State Park campground

This was our first time at Medoc Mountain State Park in Hollister, NC. There are bike trails, horse trails, and walking trails at this state park. When we went the trails were too wet for us to do but I understand that they are beautiful right along the creek. We were there with a group of Bigfoot enthusiasts and we found out that this area of NC is known for Bigfoot sightings. The group had a thermal image hit the night before we got there. Anyway, the RV park and Tent sites are intermixed which I kind of like. The campground is like a figure 8 with the top of the 8 as mainly RV with electric sites and the bottom with sites without electricity. Most sites were recently graveled and were in good status especially on the tent side of the site. You could park a small RV in any of the sites, even the “tent” sites but there would be no electricity. There is no water or sewer at any of the sites but there are water faucets spread around the campground to fill freshwater tanks and there is a dump station out the way out of the camping area. This is an older park so it is Not setup to handle larger RVs. Angles getting in and out of some of the sites will be challenging for some RVs. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our time there. Fred, the camp host, was the best camp host ever and fun to talk with.

If you are ok with dry camping with electricity only, this is a great place to try and especially at such a low site cost.

Nature and Privacy

This campground was opened in 2019 so everything is very new. The sites are spread very far apart. There are no trees for shade and this campground may become hot in the summertime. Each site is separated by waist heigh field grass. The sites have course gravel for the RV pad and finer gravel for the “tent pad” / picnic table area. We were in a tent that connects to the back of our Honda Odyssey and I used two tarps to protect the tent flooring even on the finer gravel. Cell signal is almost nonexistent except for possibly AT&T which a neighboring camper told me.

I would recommend this campground except maybe not so much in the summer months
