The Piedmont’s Kings Mountain State Park has miles of forested trails perfect for supreme Kings Mountain hiking, two fishing lakes, and sits adjacent to Kings Mountain National Military Park, one of many national park Revolutionary War sites. Local crowds flock to the park during regularly scheduled special events, especially every November when living history demonstrations are held at the park’s replica 1800s Piedmont farm.

For those who want to stay overnight at Kings Mountain, campground accommodations–including equestrian facilities–are available at the Kings Mountain campground, with easy access to Kings Mountain hiking, fishing and more.
