Kings Mountain National Military Park

The Revolutionary War battle site at Kings Mountain National Military Park, South Carolina marks the place that Thomas Jefferson called “the turn of the tide of success”. It was at this site that 900 Patriot militiamen defeated 1000 Loyalist militia and 120 Royal Provincials.

Guests begin at the visitor center auditorium to view a short film that introduces the forces involved in the famous battle. Next is a trip to the museum also housed in the visitor center. View artifacts including weapons used in the battle. Walk the Battlefield Trail to view the area from the same perspective of those involved in the conflict. Special events are hosted at the park between March and November including living interpreters telling the story of the battle and demonstrate the life, trade and crafts of the time.

RV travelers can find sites available at the nearby Kings Mountain State Park. There, campers can make an easy trip to enjoy the Military Park. While staying in the area, visitors can take advantage of other activities including hiking, fishing, horseback riding and more including a 19th century living history farm.
