CG's in Western NC

Hey All! We just relocated the Huntersvill, NC from Indiana. In Indiana the State Parks were phenomenal and everywhere.

Here we've not found the same experience so we're looking for some help with camping locations. Also if there are any camping groups in this area that would let us meet other folks. We have a Class C, and enjoy fishing, hiking a biking whenever we're out. We also have two miniature dachshunds that go with us.

Does anyone have recommendations for campgrounds here? We'd prefer to have at least power and water hookups, but water isn't critical. Bit seems most of the SP's we've checked out are more boon docking types of places.

So, any suggestions for us? We're also always looking to meet others so anyone involved in groups?

Thanks for any help. We absolutely love it here and can't wait to get out.

D&D

It isn't a SP but there are a bunch of us meeting in Mount Airy, NC for the 1st Annual Mayberry FRG F.R.O.G Rally at the end of May. You can read all about it and find the sign up info in the first post Here.

You need to update your profile, you are still in Brownsburg according to the info below your avatar!

Not western NC but Kerr Lake and Jordan Lake are nice state parks that have water and electric hook ups. MAyberry campground is pretty but does have some highway noise. Koa Asheville east frontiers are tight but back sites are by the lake. You will get train noise there. cross winds in Linwood is nice.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway in Swannanoa (between Black Mountain and Asheville) is our favorite campground of all time. I'll try to post a pic below of our campsite from this September. They are open all year.

If you have dogs, Four Paws Kingdom in Rutherfordton will probably become YOUR favorite campground. Check their website to see how unique they are.

Also agree with those who mentioned Cross Winds in Linwood (near Lexington), Jordan Lake and Dan Nicholas Park (operated by Rowan County).

About five of the top-of-the-mountain "view sites" at Mama Gerties have the swings and balconies. All of the sites at the top have great mountain views and some have large grassy front yards for viewing.
