“Beautiful State park”

Reviewed Sep 12, 2017

Overall Rating

South Mountain State Park is one of our favorite SP to visit. They have three electric sites, but they fill quickly. There is a separate camping area for horses/ trailers. With barns and electricity. The majority of the campsites are tent area. The bath house has three stalls and three showers each, and a family bathroom.

There are amazing hiking trails and a beautiful creek for wading and playing. If you enjoy trout fishing, the waters are delayed harvest, and offer excellent fly fishing opportunity Oct to June.

You can get cell service at the visitor center with Verizon. They have a small museum, visitor center and store with carries ice and firewood. Assorted t shirts, tent stakes, etc. can be purchased here. They do not sell LP bottles or refill LP. The closest stores are about twenty minutes away in Morganton, so plan accordingly.

I highly recommend South Mountain for a great "back to nature" experience. While offering a few creature comforts and still being able to disconnect from the world.
