Lining the lovely Badin Lake, Badin Lake Campground is moated with the endemic hardwoods of Uwharrie National Forest. Each site is furnished with well-kempt grills and fire rings, so feel free to light one up and fill the night with ghost stories and caramelized, aromatic marshmallows. Mmm!

A few of us stayed here in early December. Beautiful location! We stayed in site 29 and it had a view of the lake through the trees. It faces west, so we got a sunset over the water. Easily accessed trial from the campsite. We appreciated the well maintained restrooms and showers (though we didn’t use the showers). It’s a nice hike around the lake - flat but pretty. Many of the sites have a good view of the lake. Two poles to hang gear. Fire ring as well as a charcoal grill at each site.
