Mayberry Campground is a good campground with the owner being very friendly & helpful. They have numerous Good Sam Rallies there so the are used to dealing with groups. His daughters work at the campground.

The owner is a relation of (GG Grandson of Eng) Eng and Chang Bunker famous Siamese twins who are buried at the church next to the campground. He on occasion will give a tour of the farm house that was built by a son of Eng, and Eng & Chang visited. The land is on a family farm. Few trees

The Depot Restaurant in Dobson near Mt Airy is very good, Mt Airy, shows & a small museum at the Andy Griffith Playhouse is very nice, can always go for a squad car ride / tour in a vintage Ford Police car like on the show. Pilot Mountain (Mount Pilot) is nice park good hiking is near by.

WDBJ7 Roanoke plays The Andy Griffith Show every night at 5:30 PM

Hopefully will be able to attend.

Some good info there. I actually have not camped in Mt Airy before so I am glad to hear the good reports of this compound from a couple of members. I will try to have some area information available when people arrive.

Mayberry opened less than 10 years ago & does have a few minor growing pains. All sites are 3 way hook ups with may having 2 sewer inlets / one near the rear and one mid areas of the camper on the longer sites. 2 ponds both catch & release. Roads are crushed granite. Huge granite quarry near by. We did not get to go last year so can't speak to any changes / improvements. Benny (Owner) has been growing each year. The bath house is very small unless he has built another. Do have 3 metal shelters one fairly large. The bad is they are just off of I74 and some sites get some road noise but if ACs are on I do not hear it. Some playground equipment for kids.

Hay OC WEST, you don't want to miss this one, you passed through that pretty country on the way home. If I may suggest that you and the white dog start planning your route now. I know that OLD DODGE has one more trip in her...... only about 100 miles from your counterpart OC EAST. Got a new welder for my birthday so I just might weld that pin to your hitch keep them as a pair...
