Elk Knob State Park
Our Boone NC Camping location is very convenient to Elk Knob State Park, North Carolina's newest addition to the state parks system. This amazing park has it all, no matter the season! Elk Knob is the second highest peak in Watauga County and atop its summit are outstanding, broad views of the entire High Country region and beyond. Hikers love the opportunity to hike up the 5,520 summit trail. The hike itself is strenuous at times and in places the terrain is rugged and rocky; however, the views are phenomenal and breathtaking. From the summit, other mountain tops and ridgelines are visible. Mount Jefferson, Three Top Mountain, The Peak, Bluff Mountains, Longhope Valley, Mount Mitchell, Mount Rogers (in Virginia), and the Iron Mountains of Virginia and Tennessee are all visible on a clear day atop the summit of Elk Knob State Park.
