What we're about


If you are looking for a family-friendly camping group, this group is for you. We are fun-loving people who enjoy our Meetups, campers and each other.

Our members come from all walks of life and bring a variety of interests. Our members camp in anything from tents to RVs.

In addition to camping there is usually hiking, cycling, canoeing/kayaking and/or other loosely organized activities.

Carolina Campers Too membership is free of charge. However, Meetup does charge us dues. Your voluntary donations are appreciated.


We are not a primitive camping or backpacking group. If this is your type of camping, there are other Meetups that are more tailored to your camping style.

While we welcome single folks, this group is not about matchmaking or finding true romance. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. It’s all about having good clean fun.

While we are always up for enjoying some adult beverages, we are not a drunken frat party. We are family oriented. Drink responsibly.


Our board members plan around 10-15 Meetups per year. We prefer to stay at campgrounds with water and electricity throughout North and South Carolina, but are open to new venues.

Meetups can be initiated by any member. However, board approval is required before the event is posted on Meetup.

Meetups should first be posted in the general discussions section. The poster is responsible for providing dates, links, address, phone numbers and any other pertinent information for the membership to review.

Whomever posts the Meetup in the general discussions will be the host of the event. All members are encouraged to post events.

ALL reservations for campsites are the responsibility of each member. Once you have made your reservation, please post your site number in the event comments (not the general discussions). Also include how many people will be on your site.

On Saturday night, we usually have a potluck dinner, sometimes with a theme. We encourage everyone to bring a dish to share. Someone in the group will volunteer to host the dinner. Please post what you are bringing in the event comments so we do not end up with several of the same dishes.

We keep the rules simple and few:

1) Have fun!

2) Be respectful in your postings.

3) Play nicely with others.

4) Please do not sign up for events if you are not sure you will attend. Let the event host know in advance if your plans change.

5) If you have not visited the site in more than six months, you will be removed from the roster.

We look forward to meeting all of you HAPPY CAMPERS!

Mike, Phyllis, Trisha and Our Fearless Leader, Brenda
