Birkhead Wilderness AreaYesNorthern part of Uwharrie NFThere are several nice established sites throughout the area with rock fire pits, as well as opportunities to camp off the trail. The area has several water sources including creeks and a natural spring. Multiple trailheads allow about 10 mile loops from different access points. It is heavily canopied with limited views during spring/summer, but fall colors and winter views should be nice. gfstanley

Can rent a group camp area (there are 2) for $13 - up to 6 hammockers without extra charge. Plenty of good trees and a pit toilet. Site 2 better for hammocks. These sites are about a 1/4 mi. hike from the parking area. - PappyAmos, Feb 2014.

15
Cliffs of the Neuse State ParkYesNote 2 and 3 ...Gunner76Group Sites 1,2 and 3 are real nice with lots of trees but road to get to group site is a PITA. While a 2 wheel drive vehilce can make it, I would be worried about driving on this dirt road after a heavy rain as it is one lane with very limited.places to pull over. Large parking area. Camp sites less than 100 feet from parking area. Pit toliet, no showers or sinks. Water at camp sites, Pleanty of picnic tables with a rock fire ring and steel cooking ring., Site 4 would be a creek as all the water in the area will be flowing thru it after a rain..

Pettigrew State ParkYesYou will need stands at the family camp sites as there are not any suitable trees. Restooms have showers. If plannig on camping here in the winter time, check with park staff as they close down the restrooms due to cold and you will have to use restooms at park office ( no showers ).The group side has very limited parking ( like 2 cars ) and if it rains it looks like the place will be a mud hole. Has a pit toliet and a water source.

66
Stone Mountain State ParkYesNote 1, 2 and 3 Gunner76.  Backcountry camping has lots of treesHike in camping starts strenuous and gets easy to A after an initial gravel hill climb. Site A is about 1 mile in and has a large area for a group hang with immediate water access. B,C,D are all on an uphill hike. C and D get strenuous, but not difficult and are the only sites without direct water access. E is the only site that lacks suitable trees. Site F usually requires a muddy hike though somewhat dense sections. -Wyker
67
UwharrieYesBe prepared to filter water from the many streams you will crossUwharrie trail is nice. Many "established" camp sites along it and Dutchman's Creek trail. Lot's of places to hang through UT, the new section from Jumping Off Rock/Dark Mountain TH to Moffitt TH only has suitible sites in the first .25 mile, nothing on the top of Little Long though there's a new shelter in place.

Park is right next to Raleigh / Durham Airport. Campground is right off the end of one of the runways. - PappyAmos
