Kings Mountain State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Did you know that more Revolutionary War battles took place in South Carolina than in any other state? Take the Battle of Kings Mountain, which took place on October 7, 1780, and is considered the turning point for the Americans in the South.

Frontiersmen from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia gathered to defeat Lord Cornwallis and end the British advance into North Carolina. The Loyalists and English army were forced to retreat back to Charleston, ultimately to lose the war. Today, you can visit this battlefield, known as Kings Mountain National Military Park, and pitch your tent at the adjacent Kings Mountain State Park, which functions as the recreational counterpart to the battlefield. Here, you can hike, swim, fish, and enjoy yet more American history beyond the battlefield."

We hiked Kings Mountain and stayed at the Garner's Creek campsite... the hike to the top of Browns Mountain wasn't very impressive, and this trail was pretty boring for experienced hikers.
