This little hidden gem sits at the northeastern corner of the Uwharrie National Forest and along the banks of Badin Lake. This is a great location for those wanting to enjoy the lake by boat. Many of the campsites are right along the edge of the lake, so you can literally pull your boat right up to your campsite, wake up in the morning, hop in the boat, and head out to play, fish, swim, and explore. It’s a mixed bag at Badin Lake Campground. Some of the sites are right on top of one another; others area tucked away, offering lots of privacy. The King’s Mountain Point day-use area is less than 1 mile away and has a picnic area, a swim beach, fishing piers, and an open field atop Kings “Mountain” where you can toss a Frisbee or football or get a game of kickball together. Miles of hiking, mountain bike, bridle, and OHV trails run throughout the Uwharrie National Forest. You can easily access them all from the Badin Lake Family Campground and the Badin Lake Group Camp.
