Places To Camp Not Far From Fayetteville, NC
There are so many places to camp that are not far from Fayetteville, NC. As the weather gets warmer I’m getting more excited our taking our camper out again. We bought a new camper this past fall and was only able to go camping twice. Growing up in VT and being a lover of the outdoors, it was very important to my husband and I to teach our daughter about the importance about nature and life outside video games and tv. We bought a really nice 34 foot camper with 2 pop outs that sleep 10 people, I know nice right? We now camp in luxury. I have had my share of “roughing it” over the years. I remember camping as a kids and waking up in water due to the rain, but being a kid it was tolerable then. I’m pretty sure the experiences I had as a kid and the fun memories from camping growing up have faded away after my six years in the military, don’t get me wrong I enjoyed my service to my country and the things I learned along the way. I have camped MANY times in the sandy desert during the war, always great during dust storms and waking up in a layer of sand, good times. Or during survival school in February with 6 feet of snow and making a lean-to out pine bows, that was actually fun, but SO cold.
I never realized all the places to camp that are really close to Fayetteville, NC. Whether you are tent camping, cabin camping or RV camping, there are a ton of places under 3 hours to camp around Fayetteville, NC. NC State parks are a great place to start your search. Camping can actually be an inexpensive getaway and a great way to take a break from all the hussle and bussle of everyday life. I am still guilty of working on real estate deals while on trips. This is also a great way to hangout with friends and make some amazing memories. Over Memorial Day this year, two of my good friends and work colleagues and their families will be all camping together on three lots near Jordan Lake, NC. That is about an hour away from Fayetteville, NC. Our first camping trip in our new RV was to the mountains of NC in Bryson City. Very beautiful with all the leaves changing color. Another place we are super excited about going to camp in the summer is less than 2.5 hours away and it’s beach camping at Pirate Land in Myrtle Beach, SC.
