Enjoy the gifts of nature surrounded by the remnants of a once mighty range of peaks. Upon first encounter, the Uwharrie Mountains may seem like a mountainous mirage. These steep, rugged hills—unusual topography for the area—form a stark contrast with the rolling countryside of the piedmont plateau.

Recreation is plentiful in and around the waters of Lake Tillery and the Yadkin / Pee Dee River. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes. Nature lovers can pick from miles of trails to travel on foot or horseback. And for those who want to stay and take it all in, cabins and camping are available. There's really only one word to describe Morrow Mountain State Park: variety. Use the family car or RV, horseback or canoe, put on a pair of hiking boots or bait your favorite fishing pole—a visit to Morrow Mountain lets you choose your kind of adventure.

Family camping: Choose from 106 campsites for tents and RVs. Each site in the family campground is equipped with a picnic table and grill. Fires must be contained in the grill provided or you may use your own grill/stove. Drinking water and modern restrooms with showers are conveniently located. There are no hookups for RVs, but a dump station is provided. Camp Loop C has 22 sites with electrical hook-ups and offers six accessible campsites and a fully accessible shower house. A maximum of six people and two tents are allowed to stay on each campsite. An amphitheater, where interpretive programs are often held, is located near the campground.

Primitive camping: Backpack into the woods for camping in a wilderness setting. The primitive campground is a two-mile hike from the park office. A pit toilet is provided in the camping area, but drinking water and all other supplies must be carried to the site. Open fires are not permitted. Camp stoves only. A backpack camping permit is required and may be obtained from park staff. All trash must be packed out.

Group camping: The group tent camping area is located near the river and can be reached by a gravel loop road. Six sites, each with picnic tables and a grill, provide a wilderness camping experience for organized groups. Fires must be contained in the grill provided or you may use your own grill/stove. Drinking water and an accessible shower house are centrally located. Campsite #4 is fully accessible.
