When it comes to backpacking, tent camping, RV camping, rock climbing and white water sports, North Carolina is hard to beat! Beach camping in the East is awesome and mountain camping in the West is refreshing year round. Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, the Appalachian and Smokey Mountains, Pisgah National Forest, Mount Mitchell, Blue Ridge Parkway, Fontana Dam, and Linville Falls are just a few of the highlights that dot the North Carolina map. If you want to share your outdoor camping and recreational experiences with other families or enjoy private secluded surroundings, the state of NC is a prime location.
No doubt when state boundaries were created in the 1600s, NC got far more than an equal share when it comes to an outdoor recreational environment. And no doubt the NC government and citizens have done much to facilitate accessibility and enjoyment of their vast inventory of nature's environmental gold mines.
If you have not taken advantage of North Carolina's outdoor natural beauty, put this at the top of your "bucket list" and begin planning your adventure today.
