I would recommend this to anyone that loves history. We took two of our grandsons to show them where their ancestors on both sides fought.

We've been going to KMST for a while and love it. One of our favorite places to camp. We've made many friends for life here. The only negative thing is they really need to cut some trees down before someone gets seriously hurt.

We rented a shelter which was very nice with a water spigot at the shelter and also electric plug-ins. It was a very nice size with picnic tables and benches. plenty of shade to keep you cool. There was a restroom very close and also parking is very close. The shelters are very removed from some of the activities and... More

Nestled against Kings Mountain National Military Park, the state park is a great place for outdoor activities. There a nice lake where you can enjoy swimming. They used to serve ice cream and refreshments (not sure if they still do). The living history farm is really interesting and educational. Also, for those who are equestrians, there are lots of trails... More

I spent 3 nights in this park and really enjoyed it. There is a recreated early 1800's farm about 2 1/2 miles from the campground that was a 5 mile total hike. I was there in the early morning, so I had the place to myself. It was very picturesque. The park also features a 16 mile loop that goes... More

We visited this past Saturday. We had a nice picnic at the lake and then hiked for a while on the Ridgeline trail. Some of the information say this trail is moderate and we may not have made it to the hard part. We hiked for about three miles and then came back. It was really just a nice walk... More

We are in the process of visiting every South Carolina state park (the "Ultimate Outsider" challenge) and this one came up last weekend. It is a little ways down the road from the similarly-named Kings Mountain National Battlefield, so I bet a lot of people never get past that federal site and make it to this park. And that's a...

We came here for the first day hike, by way of Crowders Mountain Park in North Carolina. Crowders, this park, and the Kings Mountain National Battlefield are all connected via a system of very nice trails. This park has a great deal to offer, but our time was limited as was the availability on January 1. We did see swimming... More
