  • We were at this park for opening day of the 4x4 trails. You purchase a day or annual pass and can take your jeeps or trucks or bikes out on the trails. The campground accommodates RVs or tents with bo...  more »
  • We went to Arrowhead Campground to hike Badin Lake and mountain bike. This area is trashed! Literally and figuratively. The Badin Lake trail has trash everywhere and generally poorly maintained. Mount...  more »
  • We go to Uwharrie National Forest every chance we get. There is a lot of amazing scenery & the chance to see wildlife is abundant. Wear decent shoes for hiking because you can do a fair amount of it. ...  more »
  • It's beautiful! There are some walking trails. Fishing on the lake looks like fun. Haven't tried that yet. Perfect place to go for a fall drive!
  • Awesome national forest largely untouched by development. Great hiking trails and off roading. Family has lived in green gap shores within the forest for around 15 years, have always enjoyed going to visit.
  • I love this place. It's a huge park with tons of area for off road vehicles, horses, walking trails, etc... Personally I ride four wheelers and took mine here with a buddy of mine and we had a blast for about 9 hours one day, I wish we would have had more time to explore because we probably only saw 1/4 of this park. There's a pretty famous trail for 4x4s here called "Daniel" (youtube it if you're into 4x4s). It's pretty intense and me and my buddy actually did it on our wheelers by accident. I suggest if you're into anything outdoors, you check this place out.
  • Went camping and it was gorgeous. Just off a lake. Cold but beautiful.
  • Great place to take the Jeep for a day or weekend of wheeling. Great camping spots, and water access. It can be crowded certain times of the year and long weekends, so we try and head up when its a bit quieter.
