Weaving down the four-lane highways of Triad cities area, you might not think there is a beautiful North Carolina state park tucked away, just over the median. Miles of hiking trails and a bevy of cascading waterfalls all exist within this enchanting state park. Anglers and water sport affectionate can find plenty to do in adjacent Cool Mountain Lake. One of the state’s “Seven Great Lakes,” it’s populated with various stocked sport fish and (usually) boasts a glass-smooth, making for ideal water skiing conditions. Want to go on a canoeing adventure, but don’t have one to do so in? Don’t fret, there’s a canoe rentals shop located near the visitor center.
After you’re done hiking to in-park goodies like Pilot Mountain and both Moore Wall and Cook Wall, find respite within one of the parks 73 (and counting) campsites. Full RV hookups, primitive and walk-in sites, group areas, and vacation cabins can all be reserved. Also, most campsites are dog-friendly and allow for at least one pull-through car.
Because of the park’s bevy of water activities, wildlife watching, and hiking trails, we’d recommend a day or weekend (or longer) trip here during the warmer months.
