I'm planning (or at least starting to get ideas) for my next camping trip that I do annually in memory of my brother, and this year we'll be going up to North Carolina. I'm familiar with ZERO campgrounds up there, and would appreciate some input. We're gonna do it around October (presumably...I'm not quite that far yet). 2012's was here near Columbia, but one of the attendees lives in Raleigh. Rather than ask him to drive down here this year (to where we all are), a few of us decided it would be nice to head up closer to there.
Here's the geography: I need it to be within an hour or two of the Raleigh area on the eastern or preferably southwestern side, since we're gonna be coming up from Columbia and don't wanna drive four or five hours to get there.
We'll be car camping, so hiking needn't be a consideration. Needs to have space for at least a few hammocks and a few tents. Running water: yes. Electricity: don't need it.
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.
