 Note:  the following is a press release from North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation.

The North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation accepted the donation of more than 1,000 acres to Morrow Mountain State  Parkin Stanly County on May14.  The donation, which brings the park's total to 5881 acres, is part of ALCO Corporation's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission relicensing agreement that was finalized in 2013.

"Morrow Mountain has been a beloved destination for families from Stanly and nearby counties for generations.The opportunity to have this amount of Peidmont land for conservation, recreation, and education is extraordinary."

Theproperty is situated on the north-northwest side of the park and along the Yadkin River,  It will provide new recreational opportunities including new trails, water access, and potential for camping.  Nesting balding eagles, timber rattlesnakes and the rare Yadkin River Goldenrodmake their homes on the acreage with its large boulder fields, scenic vistas  and unique wildlife habitat.  It also includes the historic Hardaway site.                    

"We are so grateful to have this addition to Morrow Mountain State Park," said superintendent Jeff Davidson. "This major addition will conserve important ecosystems and make a little more room for recreation to serve nearby communities as well as the growing Peidmont population."

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.
