This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Campground In All Of North Carolina

With spring in full force, one great way to put yourself in the middle of the changing seasons is a weekend camping trip. While ‘glamping’ proves an option for the camper who wants a bit of the finer things, true camping involves really getting out in nature and taking it all in. Pitching a tent, a night under the stars, cooking your food by fire and launching your boat or kayak right from your tent site – it’s all possible at Lake James State Park in Nebo.

What a beautiful sunny day or weekend escape. I know I’ll be planning a trip here soon! Have you visited Lake James before?
