This is a nice park however I was disappointed with the electric feed. North Carolina State Parks often do not have hookups so I was happy to find that there was electric hookup at this park. I had a nice pull thru site but then the trouble with the electricity started. The feed was set too high - 127 volts with spikes and as a result my unit kept tripping. I also had the error message the AC had Reverse Polarity, which I've been told means some wires were crossed during installation. Not a critical error on my panel board but perhaps part of the overall problem. I gave up trying to resolve the issue and just turned the power off. Park staff told me feed into the system had been elevated to accommodate the sites further away from the control box. I'm not an electrician but if this configuration was installed to save money on the installation then it might hurt in the end. The staff member said they get a lot of complaints about the electric hookups. Maybe they should install multiple control boxes over the park area and bring the load feed down. I doubt if I will return for a multi night stay but may return for one night. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

I wrote a review last November pointing out the low power voltage. In our stay this year, I discovered the voltage was normal. The camp host told us they worked on the electrical service earlier this year. Apparently they fixed the problem. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pros:

Beautiful state park

Cheap

Quiet

Cons (All of these I was aware of except the first upon arrival):

No water at site

No sewer hookup

No Wi-Fi

No cable

Site not level at all; do not get Site #100

If you are not into glamping you will love this place. If you like the woods and shade this is the place for you. If you have a boat, bring it. The place is nice. I will be back. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pretty. Lots to do. Deer are everywhere. Great trails for hiking. Lake access is great to launch kayaks. They rent canoes in warmer months. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend, having stayed here last year. We stayed in Loop C, which is the electric loop. This is a beautiful campground, and the fall foliage added to the ambiance. There is no water at each individual site, so we went prepared for that. The bath house in Loop C is heated, which was nice this time of year. We enjoyed the hiking trails very much. Loop C is not quite as nice looking as the two non-electric loops, but it is still nice.

My only complaint of the services at Morrow Mountain is the low voltage at the sites. We stayed on two different sites the past two years, and the voltage has varied from 99 to 110 volts. Anything below 105 can damage your a/c unit. So be careful if you are there in the warmer months. Fortunately, we didn't need a/c in November. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you want to go have a meal in a restaurant or you forgot some supplies, the town of Albemarle is a short distance away.

This was our first time camping at Morrow Mountain and we enjoyed a fun Easter Weekend with two other families. The sites were spacious with nice pads, fire grates, lamp posts, and picnic tables. We were close enough together to share meals, but far enough apart not to hear conversations. One of the sites was difficult to navigate due to trees, so I needed to move my pop-up to allow our friends with a 32' TT to back in to the site. Power was adequate for our needs and provided multiple plug-ins. The bath house was clean and stocked, but a walk from our sites. Water spigots were located throughout the campground. The state park has a beautiful pool (built by the CCC) available in the summer, a lake front with boat rentals and concessions, and great hiking. The deer made daily visits and were enjoyed by all. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This was an awesome campground. We were very happy with the large shady sites. Our site # 82 felt very private even though it was pretty close to the bath house. This is a great park with lots to do. The camp hosts were friendly and kept a good eye on things, but not too intrusive. Our site was ADA accessible and we choose it because it had a paved park area. The bathrooms were okay. What you expect from a state park. Dump area was easily accessible with potable water. We camped at Morrow Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.
