one of my favorite places to go with friends when I was young. So relaxing. Great beach, fishing, swimming, and hiking. Fairly private campsites. Better in the middle of the week, quite crowded on weekends.

Bolar Mountain is the place to go to unplug. With AT&T and Project Fi, we had no service, which was fantastic. Switch your phones to airplane mode to save your battery but still take pictures.

Bolar Mountain has four different loops you can pick your site from. The hosts are friendly and offer an outdoor movie night Saturday's at their amphitheater near the beach. Having camped other places, we really love the tranquility of Lake Moomaw. They have a beach but you can also swim from many of the camp sites. The hosts keep everything in excellent condition and also have a little camp store at their marina. The store sells one of everything, but might not always have something in stock.

Can't wait to return tomorrow!
