Art Lilley Memorial Campground - Uwharrie

Me and my family are taking the Jeeps and some ATV's to Uwharrie April 20-22. We plan on tent camping all weekend and are looking at the campgrounds. I really like the location of the Art Lilley Memorial Campground and it's direct access to the Falls Dam trail head. Only thing is I don't know much about it. Most of the info online is from when it was new. Is the campground suitable for tent camping for ~ 3 tents with plenty of room to park a truck/trailer, 2 Jeeps, and 4 ATV's? Also, the Forestry Service website lists Art Lilley as temporarily closed. I know I saw a lot of people in the campground last weekend. Is it really closed now? And if so, for how long? Thanks.

EDIT: Also, website says reservations are not applicable. Does this mean you just show up and set up anywhere? First come, first serve?

We were the last July and stayed at the Arrowhead Campground.. It was very nice and we all were very pleased.. We had about 15 jeeps and 12 campers. Each site has electricity but no water hookup.. there is water available through out the park however.. When I go back, I will definitely stay their again.. Just my .02...

I am not the man but, I know the MAN... PS 40: 1-3

Arrowhead would be my 2nd choice but I just really like the location of Art Lilley. It just confuses me that it is listed as temp. closed.

Try your question on NC4X4.com. You'll get more info there. Lots of URE wheelers and campers on that site. Good luck and have fun!

I camped at Art Lilly last fall. Vehicles are confined to a gravel lot. You have to carry gear across a barricade. There are no designated sites, so no reservations, first come first choice. There's not a lot of open flat area, you'll be hard pressed to get three tents close together.

I don't have many pics from around the campground but you can see the barricade, we parked adjacent to it and found an adjacent flat spot.
