    I had a wonderful time even in the rain. It was great to meet new fellow campers.
    I also enjoyed all the dogs who camped as well.

    The weather wasn't great but the company was. It was nice to see old friends and make new ones. The dogs had a great time being able to run free.

      I use my Novara Fiona road bike and have no problems. But you will be on gravel so thin tires are not recommended. They also recommend making a shuttle/bike reseration which I have not done yet. (waiting to see if anyone else will be riding)

    Last year they just told us to pick a site, but I tent camp and it's a little different. I am also considering going up on Thursday evening.
    Is anyone planning to ride the creeper or do some hiking?

    August 29, 2012

    • Florence

      I am bringing my bike. I hope I will be in shape to go up and back down. I will do some hiking too.

      September 11, 2012

  • Florence

    I believe I have a reservation. I will be heading up Friday evening after work.

    September 11, 2012

  • Chris K.

    We have our reservations and will be heading up on Thursday evening.

    Please let everyone know which bike company you all are using to rent the bikes for the creeper trail. Saturday is the day ? Has anyone ever rented from the ones listed? Thx

    August 30, 2012

  • Michael B.

    So, I called this morning. They have my reservation for the 3 electric sites but he said they don't assign specific sites in advance but assured me there would be the 3 reserved sites. Who ever gets there first gets first choice of the available sites. He also said that If you are calling to make reservations to call after 6:30 pm. Phyllis and I may go up on Thursday afternoon. I have a reservation for myself and Brenda and Diana is taking Tamra's site since she can't make it.

    August 29, 2012

    • Diana M.

      I can leave on Thursday after 2:00 pm. I will ask Gustavo if he can leave work earlier that afternoon. Thank you so much!

      August 29, 2012

  • Diana M.

    Mike, we sent you an email two days ago. Did you receive it? Please let us know.

    August 28, 2012

  • Michael B.

    He never gave me site numbers, just took the reservation. I will have to call this week to follow up.

    August 28, 2012

  • Chris K.

    What sites did you get Michael?

    August 28, 2012

  • Emm

    Thinking about going up on Thursday ?

    looks like I wont be able to make this one unless the date changes as I will be in Switzerland.

    It's the right campground. It was hard to get in touch with them and they didn't see very organized. He did have most of the info correct because I had doubts and made him read it back...

    Hi everyone, I called the Creeper Trail Campground and he didn't know about our group being there. I gave him a couple names too. Is that the wrong campground? Heidi Scott

    Does anyone want to share a site with me? I sleep in my van so I'd be happy to let a tent or two into my site.

  • Brenda M.

    Thanks Michael.

    I have asked about the group rate and will let you know what I find out. I am reserving three RV sites at this time for myself, Tamra & Brenda. I will let you know when I receive confirmation.

    June 8, 2012

  • Tamra J.

    add me Mike... I know where the ponies are lol... I had a blast hiking up there last week.

    June 5, 2012

  • Brenda M.

    Mike. Their site mentions group rates. Maybe they will give us a deal. My Class B is 28 ft in case they need to know.

    June 4, 2012

  • Michael B.

    They responded to mine too and want to know how many sites we want.

    I sent another email since the web site is back up. I will let you know if there is a response.

    The photos of that area are wonderful, it would be a shame to have to change our plans. Is there a web site for that campground? Also I thin k I ran into a list of other campgrounds the other day for that region.

    Michael, I haven't tried this early, but I never could get the reservations made for the Uwharrie Camp. I finally took it as a sign that I wasn't supposed to. I had other things going on as well. However, I wondered if the state site or Reservation America are always that difficult!When I finally got someone human to help me, she tried and my card wouldn't go thru! I guess it was Fri. the 13th lol

    Has anyone been able to make reservations?
