Recreation facilities in the Stanly County area are many and varied. Stanly County is gaining additional recognition each year as the “Playground of the Lower Piedmont,” for it is truly an ideal location for recreation. Morrow Mountain State Park is located in the county 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 re-creation of the historical Kron House where Dr. Frances J. Kron lived in the early 1800’s. Learn more about Morrow Mountain here.
Many of Stanly County’s rural roads are perfect for cycling. The state of North Carolina has assisted in the production of a Bike Map for the county. Download the bicycling map here.
Hunting in Stanly County and adjoining Montgomery County for deer, quail, duck and rabbit is in abundance.
