RV camp near the mighty Yadkin River, one of the longest rivers in North Carolina, that serpentine for a little over 200 miles. Cross Winds Family Campground has 96 gravel sites, all of which have full hookups. Each site also has cable, WiFi, and a fire ring. Campers can choose from an open-space site to take advantage of the late afternoon breezes, which can be nice on a humid day, or a site with mature shade trees.
The pet-friendly campground also has bathhouses and laundry facilities for the guests to use, should they need to freshen up after an adventure. A swimming pool and fishing pond are fun ways to cool off on a hot day. Though golf carts are allowed, they must be registered with the office, and the operator must have a valid driver’s license. Another plus is campers can RV camp at Cross Winds Family Campground anytime they wish as the campground is open year-round.
The closest large town is Salisbury, which is about eight miles to the southwest. Salisbury has preserved the historic homes and buildings well over the years, and today, it has ten National Register Historic Districts, which is one of the highest in the state. It’s also the home of a Carolina specialty drink, Cheerwine.
Yadkin River meanders and glides for 215 miles, and there are several access points at which one may launch a boat. All boaters should pay attention to the water’s depth; there are stretches of the river where the riverbed is shallow. Anglers can expect to catch several varieties of sunfish, catfish, and white and largemouth bass. Follow the river south to join with High Rock Lake, which is the second-largest lake in North Carolina. It’s also considered the finest fishing hole in the state, and Bassmaster Tournaments are often held on this lake. In addition to a few bass species, fishermen can catch blue, channel, and flathead catfish, crappie, and bluegill.
Close to 5,000 acres, Morrow Mountain State Park has some of the most pristine woodlands in the state. There are close to 20 miles of hiking trails, some of which take adventurers by scenic wonders. Head up to the summit of Morrow Mountain and enjoy the panoramic views of the other mountain ridges, valleys, and Lake Tilley down below. Or hike along the contours of Lake Tilley and enjoy the sight of bald eagles and ospreys soaring high above as they search for easy prey. Keep an eye out, though. Scarlet Kingsnake, among many other species, are commonly found in the damp bottom woods, and though they are not venomous, they will occasionally bite if threatened. Startled white-tailed deer is one of the fastest creatures in these woods, second only to a raptor bird. Often, they bolt so quickly that they’re only recognized by the flash of a whitetail, which is their trademark.
For even more room, Uwharrie National Forest encompasses over 51,000 acres. There are a few hundred miles of hiking trails to explore, and on several, it’s not uncommon to not see another human once you venture far enough from the trailhead parking lot. Uwharrie National Forest is also considered one of the best outdoor rock-climbing spots in the state, thanks to a wide range of cliffs and rock slabs that are suited for people of all difficulty levels. The fantastic views that climbers are rewarded with once they reach the top are good motivation, too.
Though exploring the woodlands of North Carolina is a major draw for visitors to this area, don’t overlook the charms of the small mountain towns. Many are home to interesting businesses, historic sites, and other attractions. Rent a motorhome to discover your favorite one.
