The New Forest

4 sites · RVs, Tents82 acres · New London, NC
Located in Uwharrie National Forest, the New Forest features open meadows among stands of pine and mixed hardwoods. Campsites are far apart, each unique and offer the opportunity to commune with nature, and experience camping like it should be, emersed in nature with the opportunity to disconnect from the trappings of our modern, hectic world. This area is one of the richest archeological areas in the entire southeast United States. The location of the first real gold rush, and rich in folklore and bootlegging history, old homesteads and family graveyards are scattered among the hills. Old roadbeds and logging trails abound in the 800 acres of Uwharrrie National Forest directly adjacent to the New Forest Property making for miles of hiking opportunities, wildlife viewing, birdwatching. A 3/4 mile hike to the Taylor Family graveyard is marked with ribbons to guide you to one of the of the many family graveyards. *** A new fun feature for kids is the introduction of our dear friend Debbie Beasley"s art to the trails here in the New Forest. Scattered along the many trails are rocks painted by the one and only Debbie Beasley with cute fluorescent/3-D scenes of nature. Children can keep them as souvenirs from their New Forest camping adventure, or enjoy them while here then re-hide them for other children to find. ❤️ Come see for yourself. If you are looking for a modern, crowded campground this isn't it. However if you want a beautiful, rustic experience in nature, with a few basic amenities and with access to Uwharrie National Forest come see what others have enjoyed so much.

The best camping near Morrow Mountain State Park guide

Overview

About

Part of the Uwharrie Mountain Range in North Carolina, these peaks were once giants at over 20,000 feet tall. Five hundred thousand years of erosion has brought them down to their current elevation of under 1000 feet. Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit them. Rugged hikes, wet and wild river adventures, and panoramic vistas all come in generous helpings here. Every corner you turn there’s another spectacular view awaiting your gaze.

Morrow Mountain is one of the highest peaks in the range and is culturally significant. Since 10,000 BC, thousands of tools and weapons were excavated from here. Stone from the mountain’s summit was traded among Native Americans and has been found as far away as Maine.

Today you won’t be doing any mining on the summit, but there are grills for a sweet cookout. Check out Lake Tillery for some top-notch boating and fishing. Swimming isn’t allowed, so if you feel like a dip, hit up the olympic-size swimming pool instead. It’s open all summer.

So what are you waiting for? Bait your hook, lace up your boots, and get ready for adventure!

When to go

The ideal time to visit Morrow Mountain State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural tapestry is vibrant. Summer brings warmth perfect for water activities, though it's also the peak season. Winters are quiet, offering a peaceful retreat, but some facilities may be limited. Avoid holiday weekends if you prefer a more tranquil experience.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast before your visit to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • Stay informed about trail closures or park advisories by visiting the park's official website.
  • Accessibility varies across different areas of the park; inquire ahead for specific needs.
  • Remember to pack essentials like water, snacks, and a first-aid kit for your adventure.
  • Respect wildlife and maintain a safe distance at all times.
