After a day of climbing Pilot Mountain, a perfect place for hikers and rock climbers, do the right thing and mosey back to your campsite conveniently located along the base of the mountain among hickory and oak trees. The Pilot Mountain Campground will be a comfortable home away from home allowing you to really spend time getting to know North Carolina’s most recognizable peak and its surrounding land. Or you could reserve one of the primitive and remote canoe campsites along the Yadkin River Canoe Trail, if that’s what floats your boat.

We stayed at site 13 back in 2014, but Pilot is a place we visit fairly often. Our site was close a flushable toilet and running, warm water. The site was mostly clean of debris and the tent pad was pretty well maintained. There were a few larger rocks that we had to remove, but otherwise comfortable. Our particular sure had great trees for hammocking. The campground is at the base of the mountain, so you either have to hike two miles up the side or drive up. There is a ranger station half way up, but the views are beautiful.
