Stanly County’s Major Tourist Destination

Over a half-million people visited Morrow Mountain State Park in 2017.  They drove up to its famous overlook, hiked its scenic trails, enjoyed a cookout at a picnic shelter, or a swim in its pool. Many encompassed its boundaries on horseback, kayaked or canoed or fished where the Uwharrie flows into the Yadkin. Others relaxed in one of its cabins, or camp sites, or visited the Lodge for a community event, or ambled through its museum, or sat on a fallen tree in the forest to view some deer or enjoy the birdsongs.
