About Blue Mounds State Park
Blue Mound State Park is located in the Blue Mountains of North Carolina, south of Fort Worth, Texas, about 30 miles north of Dallas.
This 1,153 hectare park is a great place to find solitude in the mountains, with many hiking, camping and hiking trails. Blue Hill is open all year round and has a wide range of campsites, from wooded pitches to campsites with picnic tables and fireplaces. Each cabin has a picnic table and campfire, toilets and water fountains are located on each campsite.
Modern buildings with toilets and showers are located opposite (30) and two electrical installations are suitable for disabled people (2).
You must register your tent and pay for the entrance fee before setting up camp. As the visitor station is closed on arrival, you can use the self-registration station.
Reservations for family camping are accepted, but the number of people on each campsite is limited. If there is a separate group camp at Blue Hill, organized groups can also make reservations and camp there.
Some parts of the campsite are open all year round, and some parts are only open in the summer months, such as July, August, September and October.
Firewood and tap water are available, and two electrical installations have been excavated for the winter. Some have no electricity, but power lines have been laid on construction sites 28 and 32 and at some other sites.
Campsites and cabins can be adapted for disabled guests and offer access to Blue Mound State Park swimming pool and other amenities. The swimming pools are open with permission, but they have not been built yet because there are so few swimming facilities in the area. BlueMound State Park is one of the most popular parks in North Carolina with more than 2,000 visitors per day.
The pool is L-shaped and has two separate swimming and diving areas, one in the middle of the pool and the other on the ground. The pools are separated by a 1.5 foot wide, 1 foot deep pool, and the depth varies from 3 feet in shallow areas to 11 feet for the diving area. A pool chair lift helps visitors with physical disabilities reach the pool at Blue Mound State Park. It is heated and maintained at 79 - 80 degrees Celsius and is accessible to all visitors, not only disabled people or under 18 years.
The lift is water-powered and is designed for own use, but the chair can be rotated 90 degrees to improve accessibility for deckchairs and wheelchairs.
