This is a great asset to Rowan County. It is a great place for family gatherings, covered picnic shelters or open tables. There is a mining shed, a wildlife area, paddle boats, fishing, a nature center, petting zoo, carousel, miniature train, camping, miniature golf and more.. So much for a family to enjoy. Each year Autumn Jubilee is held the... More

This Park has something for everyone. It has a wonderful park area for older and younger children. There is a section for small children separate from the older ones. There are a couple of attractions - carousel, train ride, mining, paddle boats, mini golf. They have a very small petting zoo - animal display area. During the summer they have... More

This park is great fun for little kids! We take our nieces and nephews every time they are in town visiting! There is a splash pad, a little train, a merry go round, mini golf, treasure hunting, picnic tables, and lots of open spaces to play and have fun. The cost of the "attractions" is minimal and pay-as-you-go, so you... More

My husband and I took our two grandkids to the park during this past summer. We were absolutely amazed at the different things to do and so cheap. Our grandkids call this the "special park" and ask to go there during every visit to see us. It's nice to still be able to find something affordable to take children to... More

Camped here last weekend for 3 nights, spots are very roomy. Have to say probably one of the best places we have stayed especially with so much to do. Weather was cold and rainey one day, but a warm weekend would be great with the train ride, zoo, water park, paddle boats etc. My grand kids loved the zoo and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the campground, it's a very family friendly campground! My only complaint is that we didn't know which way to drive into the park so that we would be facing the right direction to back in our RV. My husband did his first 3 point turn in an RV :) Bath houses were very clean, and... More

This is a terrific, family-friendly park and campground about one hour from Charlotte, NC. Well worth the drive, especially if you have young children, and admission is free. The park is about 8 miles from the NC Transportation Museum, which is also worth a visit. Dan Nicholas Park is large and scenic and has nice hiking trails through the woods... More
