North Carolina, home to the first flight launched thanks to the Wright brothers, is a marvelous state, offering an abundance of beautiful scenery where one could easily hang and catch the first flight feel on your very own hammock!
From pure aquatic attractions to forestry and hiking, North Carolina has best of both worlds, and can even indulge a fellow hammocker into a sweet middle point between aquatics and trees. I’m always on the lookout for places to hammock near me. Here are my seven favorite places to hang in North Carolina.
Mid-point Hammock Hanging Locations
Blue Ridge Mountains that holds the Pisgah National Forest, offer two beautiful destinations:
1. Looking Glass Falls
Allows one to hang above glistening rocks due to the easy flowing stream, surrounded by tangled trees creating a perfect oxygenic atmosphere.
2. Moore’s Cove Falls
When one wants “Moore” options to hang around past Looking Glass Falls, just keep hiking! What makes this majestic is the fact that standing behind the fall under the rocks allows a fellow hammocker to keep perfectly dry!
3. Sliding Rock
A slippery hang out spot for the family crowd! Slipper Rock offers safe fun for both children and adults. Children slide down, while parents hang from overlooking trees.
The Go-To Spots: Pure Forest & Pure Water
4. The Great Smoky Mountains – Forest to the Max!
Great campsites and hiking trails that would be perfect for a regular camping hammock or a camping hammock to be above all the treacherous wildlife on the ground.
5. The Outer Banks – Hammock Beach State Park
An ideal location to pack up a hammock or possibly the camping hammock to see the beautiful sun rise above the soft sand.

6. SOCO Falls
There are no signs directing one to the jaw-dropping fall, one would have to create a trail off HWY 19 in Maggie Valley.
7. Moore’s Cove Falls
“Moore” of Moore, is this alternate perspective of the majestic water fall!
