Uwharrie National Recreation Trail
THIS PLACE GIVES ME REASON TO GO ON AND JEEP. Good well maintained trails and easily accessible for all manner of off road vehicle. Watch out for them Jeep people, they're a strange lot.
The campground was fantastic. The people visiting the campground, not so much. If you visit, clean up after yourself. Maybe do a quick Google search of campground etiquette.
Amazing weekend backpacking the national trail! The stretch between highways 24 to 109 was my personal favorite, lots of valleys and stream crossings. It was fine while we were there but I can definitely tell why many warn against trying to hike this trail near spring floods or after prolonged rain. So many gorgeous campdites and fire rings people have made along the way. What could be better than falling asleep beside a babbling brook?
Put in our kayaks at Cove Boat Ramp. Badin Lake was gorgeous. Paddles along the western shore. Saw numerous wildlife specimens. Drove through the camp ground. Saw comfort station with a shower. We plan to camp there in the fall.
Been enjoying off-roading at Uwharrie ORV for many years. Terrain is from mild to wild. If you do the wild trail (The Daniel) expect the likelihood of scratches, winching, and broken parts. Stock vehicles will likely not survive. (And some have rolled down the mountain). Always tons of fun when I come, and that's often.
