    Try Uhwarrie National Forest, up Hwy 49 out of Charlotte about 1-1.5 hrs depending where you go. Great place 4-wheeler trails, river, hunting and camping.

    Also, travel a little further and make it to Jones Gap and Table Rock in SC. Both have great camping. Jones Gap has some incredibly difficult hiking; there is one section which is now closed due to its difficulty. Worth checking into.

    PrkChp76, saving $100 to drive 4 hours to get a kayak doesnt make sence. I have been checking on them here and people just want too much for them. Might as well get a new one for just a few bucks more, or if a sale ocurrs, Ill save by getting a new one.

    MasterMynd, thank you. That is the info I was looking for. I cant walk due to surgery right now, but cant wait to get out there and have a good time.

    Oh, I almost forgot, there's also Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock state park right up off I-77 and both of those are great to camp at too, and are right at an hour or so out of Charlotte. You can Google map either, they are really easy to get to!

    Straight up 321 north (Exit 17 on I-85) to the Blue Ridge Parkway and then go south on the Parkway. Its between an hour and a half to 2 and is really worthwhile! There are established camp sites all along the parkway like Julian Price Park and others that cost a few bucks to camp at. Or, If you want to get a bit more out there in the wild, you can hit the Linville Gorge wilderness area and there is free camping off the side of the dirt rd. that runs along the ridge of the Gorge and you can also backpack all in the Gorge which I HIGHLY recommend! Its so beautiful out there! If you want to backpack out there you do need to call ahead to the ranger station a couple of weeks in advance and get a permit. Its free. The number is: 828-652-4841. They use the permit system to limit the amount of people out there at any given time so that impact on the land is kept to a minimum, and also to keep track of who is in the Gorge in the event of an emergency. Table Rock is another good place to camp and its free as well. There are a lot of rock climbers out there when its warm though so its kinda hit or miss with it being crowded some of the time.

    Anyways, here are a couple links that'll help you out:

    N.I.B., do they have open camp sites meaning you can pitch a tent anywhere? I have been to Crowders, but didnt know that you can camp there. I heard Kings Mtn. is a pretty good place.
    Crowders has a designated camping area, but it is a hike in. Not too far but you can not drive up to the area and just throw your stuff out!
