    Hanging in Davidson River Campground, Pisgah???

    So my wife comes home from work today and says friends of our's are wanting to introduce their young children to camping. We have been invited to tag-along (darn it! ) and provide some ideas of where to go, what to bring, and what to do. Right off the bat I'm think Davidson River Campground. Wives have insisted on having running water and flushing toilets. No complaints here for a car camping trip!

    So, my question is does anyone have a good idea of what sites within the Davidson River campground is feasible for a hanging family of 4 Not too worried about the ground-dwelling family, they'll be fine anywhere in there. I guess the other problem I have is that although we may reserve a "site" ahead of time, I don't think we can specify which site we want in advance.

    So, I am leaning on my HF buddies with knowledge of this campground that they might be able to point me to a couple of good sites.

    Worse case scenario, I'll have to offer up some kind of dead road-kill in a can to Hanging Burrito & Running Feather to see if they can scout me out a site or 2 or 3 . . .

    Thanks in advance . . .

    I took a few folks to Davidson River camp ground once, but it was probably about 10 years ago (& pre-hammock), so I can't be of much help.
    I do remember that on weekends they tend to fill up pretty quick, so reserving is defiantly the thing to do.

    I believe NCPatrick took his family there last year. Maybe some others here. You might try searching Davidson River Campground here on HF & see what you find. Also you might drop NCPatrick a PM & link this thread.

    I understand were your at. Info would be good for planning something like that.
    Maybe someone will see the thread & jump in.

    Thanks Slowhike. Just got an email from our hosting family (ground-dwellers) and they have already reserved a double site. Now we are at the mercy of the site that we end up with.

    Thanks for the response.

    May you have the perfect trees.
    But if you had a portable stand or two, it probably wouldn't hurt to take them along just in case, if you have room
