Merchants Millpond State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Merchants Millpond State Park is simply one of North Carolina’s finest tent-camping destinations. This quiet getaway in the northeastern part of the state tends to be overlooked because it has neither the glamour of the ocean nor the lure of the mountains; nevertheless, this coastal-plain jewel shines brightly.

The actual Merchants Millpond is a mini–Okefenokee Swamp, a brooding wetland ecosystem ideal for canoeing and fishing in the relaxing quiet that only nature can provide. The surrounding high ground has its appeal, too, with many hiking trails traveling the land. To top it off, the campground seems to have been designed for tent campers."

Great tent camping! Everything you need for a fun camping trip: hiking trails, swamp, canoes, snakes, gators, fishing, campfires and smores. Even converted my video gaming son into a camper.
