There’s nothing like sleeping under the stars while next to a warm, cozy fire. Camping is a great trip for any group of people including families, couples and groups of friends. If you’ve never gone on a camping trip, it is an absolute must. Pitching a tent and living outdoors for a couple days is a great way to reconnect with nature and really learn to pay attention to and appreciate your surroundings. The fall is usually a prime time to go camping in the mountains. With cooler days you can go hiking around the woods without getting too hot. Chilly nights and mornings make sitting by a campfire that much more enjoyable. Not only is the weather perfect in the fall, but the view isn’t too bad either. Waking up to a flood of light through beautiful orange trees is a great way to start your day.

Here in Cherokee County, we have a plethora of places where you can set up camp. Camping in the mountains is a perfect private getaway. Even though you are out in the woods, there are still many outdoor recreational activities for you to do, such as hiking, biking, backpacking, kayaking and more.

Change up your daily routine while on vacation and enjoy waking up with nature. Don’t forget the s’mores! Contact us for more information about camping in North Carolina and our campgrounds.
