Kings Mountain State Park, Blacksburg, SC

Date of Stay:  Friday June 8 - Monday June 18, 2012 (10 nights)

Rate:  $22/night

Website:  Kings Mountain State Park (SC)
   1277 Park Rd
   Blacksburg, SC 29702

Description:  Dirt roads and not very level sites.  Hilly and very wooded.  30A and water at the site.  We stayed in site 47 which was a challenge to back into.  Not big rig friendly but it is close to Gaffney, SC.  We stayed here with our friends Nancy and Bill so that we could go to the Freightliner Chasis Class since they also had a new Winnebago.

Activities:  Hiking and Geocaching.  A Living History Farm is on the grounds.  Re-enactors were there one day to give it a hands on experience.  Nearby is the Kings Mountain National Military Park with a nice visitor center and paved path up the mountain.  The battle of King’s Mountain was fought in 1780 and it was a pivotal point in the Revolutionary War. 

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpster as you enter the campground.  Also have recycling at entry (cans, plastic, glass and newspaper).
