Kings Mountain State Park

Kings Mountain State Park

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

A big, hilly, woodsy park with lots to do, Kings Mountain State Park has been a regional favorite for generations.

Built originally by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, Kings Mountain has miles of trails, equestrian facilities, a primitive group camping area, two group camps, campgrounds, two fishing lakes with boat rentals and the popular Living History Farm.

The farm is a realistic replica of a typical Piedmont farm from the early to mid 1800s. Buildings include a house, barn and gin, and there are gardens and animals, including cows, chickens and a bunch of friendly cats.

Regularly scheduled special events at the park bring in local crowds and the park also is adjacent to Kings Mountain National Military Park, site of a pivotal Revolutionary War battle.
