  • Hagan-Stone Park, NC


    Hagan-Stone Park is located in Pleasant Garden NC, south of Greensboro. The 409-acre park was created in 1964, and offers a 70-site campground, a wildlife refuge, fishing lakes and several miles of hiking trails.


    When you arrive at the campground, you pick any empty site and then later in the afternoon, a ranger will come by to check you in. There are two camping loops - one is a large open area with 41 sites, while the other is a wooded area with 29 sites. We like the sun, especially when it's cool, so we opted for site C-2 in the open loop.

    Date of visit: Nov 2008

    Sites in the open area are located around the perimeter of a large rectangle. Along the back side are sites C-14 through C-32.

    Sites B-1 through B-4 are located along the road as you enter the campground area.

    Along the north side of the open area are sites C-33 through C-41.

    The bathhouse is fairly new, modern, clean and offers free hot showers.

    For the kids there's a large play area right beside the campground.

    In the middle of the open field is a shelter, handy for groups that often use this part of the campground.

    Formerly known as the "The Chapel Beside the Road" at Greensboro's Cotton Mill Square Mall, this charming one-room chapel was frequently used during the holidays, and at other times of the year, as a focal point for special community events. Several years after the mall closed, owner Carl Johnson donated the historic chapel to the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department. Today, the chapel makes its home overlooking a beautiful lake at Hagan-Stone Park, near Pleasant Garden.

    Near the entrance to the campground is this old tobacco barn.

    Scattered throughout the park are six large picnic shelters.

    There are several miles of hiking trails in the park.

    Located a short walk from the campground is the Oak Grove School, a reproduction of the original schoolhouse that served the students of this area in the late 1800s and the early 1900s. The schoolhouse offers visitors the opportunity to experience what it was like to attend school 100 years ago when their great, great, great, great-grandparents attended school. The schoolhouse, located near the original schoolhouse site, was designed and constructed based on the memories of the last few remaining students that attended the Oak Grove School.

    Lake #3 is the largest of 4 lakes in the park. They are stocked wth shell crackers, bluegill, channel catfish and largemouth bass.
