Located on old tobacco farmland close to the NC / SC line about 35 miles inland from the coastal beaches. Near Tabor City NC. We live close enough for a good day trip to Myrtle Beach SC, the more quaint NC beaches like Sunset, Ocean Isle, and Holden Beach. Lake Wacammaw is about 45 min and Wilmington 1 1/4 hours away. We can offer water and 20 amp / 120 volts of electricity at this time. Unlimited length on grass or gravel but long tree lined driveway is kept trimmed at 12’ height. Or can park in large open areas on solid grass covered ground without using driveway access.

host Profile

Age:

55-65

We were high school sweethearts and have been married now for 36 years. We both still work full time but are hoping to be able to slow down soon in the future. Camping has always been our favorite family experience when our son and only child was still with us. But tragically we lost him to a motorcycle accident at age 25. But we still have a part of him with us in his son who was born one month after he passed. He is now living with us. Even though we are quite a bit older now, we don’t want him to miss the joy of camping and meeting the greatest group of people in general that I know of. Making good memories is what it is all about. Because one day, memories is all we will have left.

    This is a new favorite of ours! We arrived much later than planned, but our host walked us through parking and hooking up over the phone and then helped me the next day for over an hour with a problem we were having with our shower. We’re hoping to stay again on our way home.

    Beautiful, beautiful people. That’s the only words to describe our hosts, who went above and beyond with their southern hospitality. We spent Xmas at their home and couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. Everything about our stay was perfect—from the site location to the electrical hookup. We also enjoyed hearing about the history of the property—absolutely fascinating! We can’t thank you enough for your generosity & kindness. When you come to Canada, you can expect a Maritime welcome with us any time. We look forward to seeing you down the road.

    We had a great time here! Easy to maneuver and park. The host even gave us fresh chicken eggs. Kind hosts and a peaceful nights rest. Thank you!

    I do not like requesting holidays, but the host was so kind and graciously accepted our stay for 3 days, one of which included Thanksgiving. He was so nice during our stay, offering different amenities throughout it. Our son loved playing with their sweet boy, and we enjoyed some growup interaction as well haha! Very level spot, easy to get into, and very quiet! We left feeling we had made friends! Thank you so much!!!
