Journey to North Carolina's mountains, shrunken through time to become the unique landscape that makes up Morrow Mountain State Park. Not only is this location home to interesting geological features, but it is saturated in history as well, with many artifacts being unearthed from Native American peoples from thousands of years ago.
If you'd like to take time to discover all that this park has to offer, you can stay at one of the 106 campsites located here, ranging from primitive to campsites with electric hookups. There are also cabins on-site, although they do not allow pooches inside. Nightly costs start at $10 for basic sites and go up to $52 for group camping lots. Each campsite comes with a picnic table and a fire ring, and drinking water is available on the grounds.
While here, you won't run out of fun things to do in the great outdoors. The lake and rivers that flow through the park make for a perfect place to cast a line or paddle out to on a canoe. If staying dry is more your style, grab your furry buddy and head out for a hike on one of the many trails that take visitors around the mounds that once were towering mountains. Horseback riding through the woods is another popular pastime at Morrow Mountain.
Pooches are welcome at this state park as long as they are kept on a 6-foot leash throughout their stay. It is also requested that owners never leave their four-legged friend unattended at any point in their visit. As always, make sure you clean up everything your woofer leaves behind -- and dispose of it correctly! Remember that canines are not permitted in any of the buildings on-site (other than service dogs) or in designated swimming areas.
For any who want to explore the wild lands of North Carolina, Morrow Mountain State Park is a great place to get back in touch with nature.
