Stanly County is gaining additional recognition each year as the “Playground of the Lower Piedmont,” for its truly ideal location for recreation. Morrow Mountain State Park is located about six miles east of Albemarle.
The park is bordered on two sides by Lake Tillery and covers 4,425 acres in the Uwharrie Mountains, the oldest mountain range in North America. Morrow Mountain’s facilities include family campgrounds, vacation cabins, a large swimming pool and bathhouse, picnic areas, rental boats, a natural history museum, hiking and nature trails, an amphitheater, and a recreation of the historical Kron House where Dr. Frances J. Kron lived in the early 1800’s. Visit Morrow Mountain on the web HERE!
