Fort Awesome is---well-- awesome! It's located on the grounds of a former school campus in the town of Lansing, NC. Lansing is a small but growing Appalachian mountain town. The buildings at the Fort are currently under renovation but have working toilets and showers. You can camp anywhere on the property, but for privacy we recommend the top of the hill behind the school. It's flat, grassy, and private. You can easily walk your things up from the parking lot--30 seconds. Play on the lawn, walk into town, have a glass of cider at Molley Chomper Cidery (on-site), or get awesome locally sourced pizza salads and sandwiches at Pie on the Mountain. You're only 20 minutes by car from biking on the Virginia Creeper Trail, five minutes by foot from hiking the Lansing Creeper Trail Park, and ten minutes by car from the hip little town of West Jefferson.
