Within the boundaries of the Birkhead Wilderness, finding a place to camp couldn’t be easier. In fact, disperse camping is allowed practically anywhere in the 5,160 acre wilderness. The only rules are to stay at least 200 feet away from creeks, streams, and roads.
But for me, there are some areas of particular interest along the historic Uwharrie Trail that are worth checking out and maybe spending the night.
This map is of Boy Scout camps built in conjunction with the Uwharrie Trail. This map contains the camp trail, along with the main intersecting trail, and does not include all trails in the area. For a map of all hiking trails on this website, visit the map download.
