Campgrounds Across Carolinas Offer Unique Accommodations

CAMPGROUNDS ACROSS THE CAROLINAS OFFER UNIQUE RENTAL ACCOMMODATIONS, FROM FURNISHED GLAMPING TENTS, TEPEES AND YURTS TO COZY CABINS AND COTTAGES

The Jellystone Park in Bostic, N.C. even has treehouse like cabins while accommodations at Campfire Lodgings in Asheville, N.C. include a 3,000-square foot cliff house with a stone fireplace. Stoney Fork Campground in Ferguson has its own bed and breakfast inn in a 100+ year-old farmhouse.

When people think about camping, tents and RVs immediately come to mind.
But campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across the Carolinas actually offer an enormous variety of rental accommodations.
“You really don’t need a tent, an RV or even a sleeping bag to enjoy a camping experience in the Carolinas, whether you want to camp on a mountaintop, along a lake or on a campsite with a view of the Altantic Ocean,” said Dee Witting, executive director of the Carolinas Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
“We have campgrounds that offer everything from RV rentals to furnished glamping tents, tepees, yurts and even treehouse-like structures to cozy cabins and cottages and lodges big enough to sleep 20 people. One campground even has a bed and breakfast inn inside a century-old farmhouse, while others offer beach and bayfront vacation house rentals. The variety of rental accommodations at campgrounds across the Carolinas is truly astounding.”

Here’s a sampling of some of the rental accommodations offered by campgrounds in North and South Carolina:

Business Returns to Normal at Many Campgrounds and RV Parks in the Carolinas

GREENVILLE, S.C., Oct. 4, 2018 — Business is returning to normal at many campgrounds and RV parks in North and South Carolina, particularly as road conditions improve in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

“Business is picking up again,” said Barb Krumm, director of marketing and public relations for Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, S.C., which has 859 campsites and 300 beach house rentals.

While Ocean Lakes’ occupancy declined in September as a result of Hurricane Florence and flooded roadways near the SC coast, much of the floodwater has receded to the point where roads are reopening and allowing travelers to reach the park again.

“A lot of the roads are now open. I-95 opened last week,” Krumm said, adding that the latest road reports for South Carolina are available at https://www.scdot.org.
North Carolina road reports are available at https://www.ncdot.gov/Pages/default.aspx.

“September was rough for the Carolinas, especially along the coast, and the flooding has really impacted many local families and businesses – for many, life has a new ‘normal’ – we all want to keep them in mind,” Krumm said.

Ocean Lakes had previously scheduled three “Hallo weekends” this month, with holiday themed contests for pumpkin carving, site decorating and costumes (including pets), a family festival, a Monster Mash Ball, and trick o’treating, but has added a mini-Halloween weekend Oct. 5-6 to boost business and morale, Krumm said.
Other parks near the coast are also seeing a gradual return to normalcy.

“Things are starting to improve for sure. We’re looking forward to having a great October,” said Vickie Fuller, administrative manager for Pirateland Camping Resort in Myrtle Beach, which has 1,480 sites, including 650 annual sites.
Fuller said Pirateland has many activities planned in October, including two Halloween-themed weekends with a magic pumpkin patch, “trunk or treating,” Halloween crafts and a haunted house.
Pine Ridge Campground in Roebuck, S.C. is “pretty full” and has a waiting list for its Halloween-themed weekends, according to park operators Brad, Cecilia and Evan McGalliard, who also said they have snowbirds both staying at the park and passing through.
Many campgrounds not only weathered Hurricane Florence, but have provided campsites and rental cabins for evacuees, particularly in the inland and mountain areas of the Carolinas.
“We were able to provide safe harbor for many evacuees in the days leading up to and during the storm,” said Michael Way of the Greensboro KOA Journey campground in Greensboro, N.C.
“We are continuing to operate as normal, providing a safe place to stay for those passing through as well as many insurance adjusters making their way into the Carolinas to assist in our recovery.”

The Boone KOA in Boone, N.C. also took in evacuees, according to park managers, who added that all park activities are on schedule.

Mike Gast, vice president of communications for Billings, Mont.-based KOA, said all KOA campgrounds in the Carolinas are open and operating normally, with the exception of the New Bern KOA Holiday in New Bern, N.C., which sustained flood damage to its cabins and other structures. But the campground’s RV sites are full.
Several campground operators noted that most of the floodwaters associated with Hurricane Florence were near the coast.

“Everybody went into panic (before the storm), but there was no flooding in our area. We were unscathed,” said Jane Emirbayer, co-owner of the 16-site Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Asheboro, N.C., which is in the process of expanding to 41 campsites.

“The flooding was in the lowlands, not the mountains,” she said.

Emirbayer said the North Carolina Zoo is a popular attraction that brings lots of people to Asheboro in the fall. Many also come to enjoy the Halloween-themed weekend activities at Jellystone Park, which include campsite decorating and costume contests.

“We’re sold out for our three Halloween-themed weekends in October,” Emirbayer said, adding that she plans to add eight new rental cabins to her park in November.
Further to the West, the 51-site Valley River RV Resort in Marble, N.C. is also ready for business.

“We had no damage during the storm. Just a lot of rain,” said Jean-Marie Harrison, of Valley River RV Resort, adding, “Our roads are clear.”

The park features RV sites with concrete slabs, 30 and 50 amp electrical service as well as a bathhouse and laundry and pet wash station. The park accommodates nightly and weekly as well as monthly guests.

“While some of our member parks did sustain flood damage during and after Hurricane Florence, most of our affiliated campgrounds and RV parks got through the storm OK and are trying to get their businesses back to normal as quickly as possible,” said Dee Witting, executive director of the Carolinas Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CARVC).

Here’s a sampling of reports the association has received from other campgrounds across the Carolinas:
