Camping at Arrowhead
Beautiful NFS campground located within the Uwarrie National Forest. All sites are heavily wooded and a few include a view of Badin Lake. Although the campground roads are paved the last 1.5 miles of road into the campground is unpaved: gravel and dirt and some holes. Sites include a fire ring and BBQ grill. Sites have electric only: fill your take with potable water is available at the dump station. Most site will require some leveling. Campground was very clean an well kept. Batch house was older, but clean (no AC, so it was humid). *LOTS* of hiking and off-road trails (bring your ATV or OHV!). OUtdoor shooting range is nearby, so you may hear some gun shots. We camped at Arrowhead Campground in a Tent Trailer.

What we're about

We are Family Friendly and all are welcome.

We are a camping based outdoor recreation group. We invite members who enjoy all types of camping. We have tent and RV campers in our group. Our meetups are suggested by our members and individual trips are tailored to the interests of the group attending the particular event.

In addition to camping there is usually hiking, cycling, canoeing/kayaking, and other loosly organized activities depending on the venue.

Meetups can be initiated by all members but it will require a sign up of at least three members for it to post as a scheduled event and be added as an upcoming meetup. The member who posts the meetup will become the organizer for the event and is responsible for providing links, address, phone numbers and other pertinent information for the membership to review the meetup to decide if they want to participate. All members are encouraged to post events for the group. All reservations for sites are the responsibility of the individual member.

We are a family friendly group but recognize than some events may not be suitable for children. If this is the case please post this in the meetup information.

At any given meetup members who would like to do a particular activity; hiking, water sports, games, etc., will post a sign up sheet at their site and those interested can participate. There is no obligation to participate and no pressure.

We don't have many rules;

1) Have fun;

2) Be respectful in your postings;

3) Play nicely with others;

4) Please don't sign up for events you are not sure you will attend and let the organizer know in advance if your plans change.

I would like to thank the members of the original Carolina Campers for their efforts, friendship and support. All have become great friends and have shaped this group and our direction. I would also like to thank the co-organizers for their contributions. This would not be possible without their efforts and support.

Finally, thanks to all of our new members. This is your group and we want you to participate and become a voice for the future and direction of Carolina Campers Too!

We look forward to camping with you.

Brenda, Phyllis, Ramona & Mike
