Great Little Park

This is a beautiful state park located outside of Morganton, NC - definitely off the beaten path. The family campground is heavily invested in, and you can tell, it's very nice. There are only a handful of sites with electric hookups - no water or sewage hookups available. All sites have a gravel pad and parking for 2 vehicles. The centrally located shower/bathroom building is brand new, and has a wash bin sink on the back of it with hot water to do dishes if needed. From the family campground you can hike to the trailhead for the waterfall trail, which is the most popular one. It continues in a loop, or you can do an out and back if you don't feel like making the strenuous climb to the top. Some of the terrain on the trail can be a bit dicey, so definitely for the more agile. Half of the sites at the campground are adjacent to a trout stream, which is a gorgeous place to fish, cool your drinks, or string up your hammock. The rangers are very attentive to your needs and make rounds throughout the day delivering firewood ($5 a bundle) and just checking in to make sure everyone is good to go. I wouldn't go here with anything larger than a travel trailer - 26 ft or so, but it's definitely a great place to camp. Also, there is NO cell service from any provider, but Wifi is available at the visitors center (1 mile drive from campground).
