  • Came with a friend for Labor Day weekend. We were astonished at how few people were there, we thought it'd be busy for the holiday weekend. There was only one other group staying at our site. The trai...  more »
  • Get there early enough and you can get a "first come, first serve" site. If not there's plenty of places along the road to stop. They will have fire rings and a place to put a tent. I went with my 4&5...  more »

  • Arrowhead campground is a nice campground, but no water at campsites. No soap or mats in restrooms. Accessible only by dirt road until entering campground. If going in an RV try to get sites on upper Loop outside. Much flatter than inside sites.
  • I absolutely love coming here the scenery is just breathtaking. The hiking is lovely. And seeing the ATVs and jeeps heading towards their trails makes me want one so bad.
  • Loved it, stayed at the group camp ground. Great staff, clean showers and restrooms. The trails are beyond compare. I would have liked a place for the kids to swim in the lake but we made out ok just swimming by one of the fishing piers.
  • You will be shocked at the beauty that is not to far away. Its a hidden gem amongst North Carolina piedmont area. Go there at least once. But once you do you will return. I have been going here for about 20 some years now
  • Cabin rentals were 100% ON POINT. Highly recommend going here for a very QUIET getaway. Don't expect to do very much. Cabins were studio-style setup, and full kitchen. There were no 4-wheeler rental joints anywhere in the area; if you like doing that, you'll have to bring your own. Go to the Stony Mountain Vineyard for wine tasting! You will not be disappointed.
