There are areas for camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing, hiking, and boat launching. There is also a visitor center with a museum and bookstore, and an amphitheatre in historic Fort Hamby Park for performances such as the popular "Legend of Tom Dooley".
Stone Mountain State Park   Stone Mountain is not immediately visible upon entering the park that bears its name, but this magnificent 600-foot granite dome is well worth the wait. Sunlight and shadows dance across a broad tapestry of stone. White-tailed deer emerge from the security of the forest to graze on meadow grasses at the mountain's base. The scenery is only one attraction of the park.
Rendezvous Mountain Educational State Forest is a unique outdoors experience! Located in the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains, this forest showcases magnificent mountain hardwoods in one of North Carolina's most scenic setting. Its features are accessible by a series of well-marked trails, accented by exhibits and displays depicting the ecology of the managed forest.

The nightly excursions take place from May through Halloween in buildings located throughout Old Wilkes‚ including the Old Wilkes Jail‚ Smithey Hotel and the Presbyterian Cemetery.  
Wilkes Heritage Museum Exhibits Range from Civil War to NASCAR  One of the race cars driven by NASCAR legend and Wilkes County native Junior Johnson is here‚ and so is a piece of the military jacket worn by Gen. Robert E. Lee. They are among the hundreds of exhibits being showcased at the Wilkes Heritage Museum‚ which opened to the public in November 2005. 
Love_Valley_NC The Town of Love Valley   Love Valley is a small, unique town located in a remote valley in the Brushy Mountains of northwestern North Carolina. Its creation in 1954 marked the fulfillment of a dream for founder Andy Barker. Barker developed two visions as a young man-he wanted to build a Christian community, and he wanted to be a cowboy. In 1954 he combined those visions to create an authentic, Old West-style village in the hills of northwestern Iredell County. The town was chartered in 1963. 
Black Cat Station - If you’re in the mood to relive a bit of railroad history‚ stop by Black Cat Station. Home of the Yadkin Valley Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society‚ the station makes its home at 800 Elizabeth St. in North Wilkesboro‚ the former location of the Wilkes Art Gallery. The society runs a 1/87th scale model railroad at the site‚ named in honor of the Black Cat Sandwich Shop that was an earlier tenant of the building.
