The best camping in North Carolina.

From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Outer Banks, your adventure is waiting


The glamp site view as you arrive!
The land below the tent is beautifully landscaped on the way to the creek
Below the glamp site is a small creek with a (second) grill/fire pit to cook - the tent is also equipped with a stove on the inside
The pooch loved the creek! Mary also provides a crate for your dog companion to reside in while you cook, move things from your car, etc.

The wide variety of landscapes and ecosystems in North Carolina offers some of the most diverse camping on the east coast. Tourists may flock to the popular Outer Banks, but the best North Carolina beach camping can be found along the southeast shores of Hammocks Beach and Carolina Beach State Parks, where dunes, wildlife, and watercolor sunrises are sure to delight. And it's not just the coastal dwellers who can enjoy peaceful beach camping: North Carolina is bursting with lakes, creeks and rivers, so you can fall asleep to the lull of the water and waves no matter where you go. Head west into the wooded Appalachian Mountains for epic state park camping set against the towering blue ridges. And for something off the beaten path, North Carolina offers a variety of private camping locations complete with scenic, open meadows and orchards, decked-out mountain cabins and everything in between.

Greenheart Forest
Finally reached Little Max Patch Bald where we would watch the Solar Eclipse. The whole hike took around 20-30 min. It was a beautiful walk!
Greenheart Forest
There are lots of great areas to hang multiple hammocks!
The fire pit is very large and open and all the tent sites surround it.

There is a campfire ring in the yard behind the tree house, a perfect arena for roasting marshmallow.
A perfect corner for extreme relaxation. This couch could also be extended to become a small secondary bed.
The step ladder will lead to the main sleeping area. The kitchen include numerous cabinets which are great for storage.
Plenty of room to string up your hammock for some outdoor relaxation.
In the fall, the hills are a beautiful patchwork quilt of colors. The tree house is hidden inside. photo credit to Jenny Trask

I missed the fall leaves by one week, but it still was a clear and beautiful day to see the mountain range.
At the lowest point of Matt's property is the Tuskegee River that you can tube and swim in during the summer!
Cannot stress the awesome views enough!
White cat tail grass located near the highest point (and near Cole's favorite spot)
The path on the right is definitely 4WD required while the one on the right has some spots that someone could access without.

North Carolina's Kill Devil Hill was the site of the Wright brothers' first successful flight in 1903.
The Cabin as you drive up. It sits on a hill overlooking the pasture and the pond.
A beautiful bespoke kitchen awaits you and bathes the cabin in sun both morning and afternoon sun.  The pendant light above the sink was hand made from a wagon wheel spoke that Alyce's father used when he farmed the land.
There's a beautiful little trail that takes you across the pasture through a fence and around the perimeter of the 55 acre farm. At sunset it's particularly bucolic.
The still pond in the morning light makes for a beautiful and silent contemplative moment

Sunset from the ridge. Sit back, and watch an art show before your eyes.

Every moment here is peachy.
The pond gets brilliant light, no matter what time of day.
