    Hi From NC

    Hi!

    We are Sara and Chris....well I'm Sara and my boyfriend is Chris. I figured would make a joint account to keep it easy since we are both pretty new at this. We both just bought ENO's and are really excited about getting a little more adventurous with our camping. Would love to know some great spots in NC, or at least not too far away maybe TN or VA or SC, where we can set up camp with a great view.

    We've learned a lot so far just from reading different posts!

    Hi Sara and Chris! Welcome to HF!

    I just recently visited Raven Rock State Park (near you) and it was really a nice stay, but then I'm a little bit partial to supporting the NC State Park system, so I tend to go to those most often (and take the kids). I'm trying to see if I can visit them all. There are also just a zillion and a half other great places right around there to camp. I'm betting you get many many recommendations. Again, welcome!

    welcome to HammockForums and hey from high point nc.
    there is a ton of stuff here to read, learn and ask about.
    if it's hammock related it's here or still waiting to be invented.

    keep an eye on the Hangouts, Campouts, and Trip Planning forum for good places.
    the place i frequent most is my yard and woods. ive got 5 different hang sites i can slip out to and still keep up with work and my "honey do list"
    NC State Parks are the best, here's a place to start.

    hang on and have fun.

    home is where your hammock is.
