Mortimer Campground does not disappoint! Hiking, fishing, swimming, and waterfall splashing abound on, and around, this campground. Many of the campsites are situated along Thorps Creek, so the sound of the creek can lull you to sleep. We stayed on site #6, which was on the creek. Two trailheads are on the campground, one of which is a beautiful and easy hike to a small waterfall. Be prepared for zero cell service and a dirty vehicle….NC HWY 90 turns into a gravel highway just outside of Lenoir. Will definitely be on my “Must Visit Again” list!
