Come to Morganton, NC - Nature's Playground

Nestled in the foothills of the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains, Morganton is called "Nature's Playground" for a reason. The Pisgah National Forest covers the North West section of Burke County; Linville Gorge, also known as the Grand Canyon of the East, is just a short drive from the city; and Burke County is home to two State Parks. Lake James State Park sits astride a pristine, 6,812-acre reservoir that offers all the activities one might expect including boating, swimming, fishing, camping, 15 miles of mountain bike trails, and remote paddle-in campsites. Trails vary from the short, educational Holly Discovery Trail with child-friendly activities to the more adventurous segment of the historic Overmountain Victory Trail. South Mountains State Park is one of the state's most rugged areas featuring elevations to 3,000 feet, an 80-foot waterfall, mountain streams and more than 40 miles of trails for hikers, equestrians, and outdoor adventurers. Mountain bikers enjoy a 17-mile loop, and drive-to campsites sit beside the Jacob Fork River.
