Overview

Overview

Fort Hamby Park is located on the north side of W. Kerr Scott Reservoir in western North Carolina.

Constructed in the beautiful Yadkin River Valley, the lake offers extensive opportunities for outdoor recreational activities.

Natural Features:

The gentle Yadkin River flows through its scenic namesake valley on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills. Forests of mixed hardwoods, including sycamore, poplar, oak and hickory, cover the region.

Wildlife is abundant in the valley. White-tailed deer, black bear, eastern cottontails and more can be found among the hills. Birds in the area include wild turkey, woodpeckers, Carolina chickadees, red-eyed vireo, ovenbirds, mallards and wood ducks.

Recreation:

The 1,475-acre reservoir offers excellent boating, canoeing, kayaking and swimming opportunities. Anglers will find channel catfish, large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, threadfin shad, spotted bass, hybrid striped bass and tiger muskellunge.

Miles of hiking trails surround the lake, including the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail. An additional 25 miles of mountain biking trails can be found at the Warrior Creek and Dark Mountain areas.

Facilities:

The campground offers a thick canopy of forest on one side and the scenic lake shore on the other. There are 33 campsites available, all with electric hookups, including one large group site that can accommodate up to 100 guests.

Modern amenities like flush toilets, drinking water and showers create a comfortable camping experience, while a playground, sandy beach, basketball court and horseshoe pit provide additional recreation opportunities.
