Kings Mountain National Military Park
The sacrifices and significance of what happened on this mountaintop echo loudly through two centuries of American history. Five times-in 1815, 1855, 1880, 1909, and 1930-great crowds of Americans from far and wide have gathered here to honor the fighters who turned the tide of the Revolution in the South.

The actual field where blood was spilled has long been preserved by the Daughters of the American Revolution and the National Park Service. Here, any activities solely for recreation are monitored and strictly limited out of respect for the men who still like buried here.

Kings Mountain State Park
Outdoor recreational opportunities abound for camping, swimming, boat rentals, hiking trails, horse trails, and picnicking not for away under the stewardship of a South Carolina state park. Since the days of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's, South Carolina has safeguarded and undeveloped green space serving as a buffer for the historic core battlefield.

You can walk the 1.5 mile Battlefield Trail, or explore other trails on foot or on horseback. Primitive backcountry camping is the only kind of camping allowed inside the National Military Park.

Enjoy your picnic at the facilities provided by the South Carolina State Park Service (see map below). Please note: no picnicking is permitted here on the National Military Park.
