This North Carolina Campground Transforms Into A Small Town During The Summer Months
If you’re like us, then the anticipation of the first camping trip of the season send chills of excitement up your spine as the weather warms up each spring. There’s nothing more satisfying and nostalgic than recreating all those summer camping trips we took as a kid – or the many more magical weekends we spent on similar trips with our own children.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
