15 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents150 acres · Yadkinville, NC
Update: We will be CLOSED July 25- Aug. 5; however, RETURNING CAMPERS that would like to come in during those dates may contact me directly for booking info. Our new BATHHOUSE is now completely functional with toilet, sink and SHOWER!! 🛖 It is centrally located in front of the office at the pond. WE LOVE OUR CAMPERS! ❤ Our new CAMP STORE offers meats and eggs from our farm, drinks, Amish made ice cream and jams/jellies/preserves, hammocks, hammock chairs, smoked dog bones, soaps (made right here), and MUCH MORE! Please note that all our sites are reserved with a one vehicle limit. Some sites are large enough to accommodate additional vehicles but each additional vehicle will incur a $10 per night charge. Free parking for additional vehicles is located at the office/store. Check us out for your next camping experience. We promise we will do everything within our power to make it great! Two new nicely wooded sites with pond view are now available to provide easy access even during periods of heavy rain. One is already set up with a new shade tent so you don't even have to bring your own! 🏕 Looking for a camping experience with a little luxury to boot? Look no further than our Oasis at Harmon Creek Farms! You can drive right up to most sites, weather permitting. You will have access to a fire ring and picnic table (located at each site), firewood for sale on site (please do not bring firewood from off-site), clean well water (located near the pond), the creek to explore, our stocked pond to fish, and wooded trails to hike. Once roamed by Native Americans and now farmed by the same family for over 6 generations, Harmon Creek Farm is a working farm of over 150+ acres. Peace, quiet, tranquility and privacy are overflowing along the creek, and hiking throughout the hills on the backside of the farm (and on the other side of the creek) leads to interesting and abundant flora and fauna. The stocked, spring fed pond is 'brimming" with angler challenges🎣 Our cows, pigs, sheep, donkeys, chickens, ducks, quail, turkeys and geese are all eager to meet you, as are we! We currently have fresh eggs, pork and beef for sale on site as well as cured and smoked bacon. We also have fresh organically raised vegetables and herbs in season. Like us on Facebook (Harmon Creek Farms of NC) for the latest on what's going on here at the farm. :)

Camping near High Point guide

Overview

Despite its name, High Point sits at just 922 feet in elevation in central North Carolina. But what High Point lacks in height, it makes up for in beautiful lake and forest camping. The town sits just north of the Uwharrie National Forest, a sprawling preserve of pine and oak forests loaded with campgrounds, trail systems, and recreation opportunities on Badin Lake. Multiple river parks are also set near High Point, where you can go fishing, try out paddling, and camp out beneath the stars. It’s also about 90 minutes from the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills, a prime area to experience alpine parks with objectively high points.

Where to go

High Point Surrounds

High Point sits right on Oak Hollow Lake and High Point Lake. The city operates a campground at Oak Hollow Lake with tent and RV camping sites, and kayaks and SUPs can be rented nearby at the Oak Hollow Marina. RV travelers will find RV parks with full hookups and wifi in High Point.

Uwharrie National Forest

The Uwharrie National Forest’s Badin Lake Campground is 60 minutes from High Point and features tent and RV camping sites with picnic tables, fire rings, grills, and restrooms. There are opportunities for fishing, mountain biking, boating, and OHV use throughout this 50,645-acre preserve.

Mayo River State Park

Mayo River State Park is 45 minutes north of High Point at Mayo Mountain. The park has fishing holes, hiking trails through hardwood forest, and paddling access to the Mayo River’s class II rapids.

Pilot Mountain State Park

You can hike, rock climb, and rappel at the 2,000-foot tall Pilot Mountain west of High Point at Pilot Mountain State Park. Camp out among hickory and oak trees at the park’s campground, or paddle on the Yadkin River Canoe Trail.

Stone Mountain State Park

Stone Mountain is a 2,305-foot peak west of High Point that culminates in a 600-foot granite dome. You can summit the mountain, hike among creeks and waterfalls, try some fishing, and camp out at Stone Mountain State Park.

When to go

High Point has a subtropical climate that can make summers hot and humid. Lake or mountain camping is a good way to go during summer visits—meanwhile, spring and fall tend to be pleasant with cool nights. Fall foliage is renowned in the area around the Blue Ridge Mountains, while spring visitors may be treated to gushing waterfalls and wildflowers. In winter, temperatures can drop below freezing and snow is possible.
