You get two parks in one at Kings Mountain: Kings Mountain National Military Park, which has a museum and visitor center and is home to the actual battlefield site; and the adjacent Kings Mountain State Park, which has two lakes, camping and equestrian facilities, and a living history farm. As the first major patriot victory, the Battle of Kings Mountain, which took place October 7, 1780, was considered a major turning point in the Revolutionary War. Thomas Jefferson called it “the turn of the tide of success,” and while hiking in the park, it’s easy to picture yourself as a Revolutionary soldier, getting ready for the battle.
