CAMPGROUND NAME: Carolina Hemlock VISIT DATE: 04/18/1996 UPDATE DATE: 6/22/2014 STATE: North Carolina REGION: Southern RANGER DISTRICT: Appalachian NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Busick RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: From Busick, NC, take State Rt. 80 north 3.8 miles to campground on both sides of road. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 2,800 ft. There are two unnamed loops on both sides of State Rt. 80. One loop meanders over a hillside while the other is next to the floatable South Toe River. As the campground name suggests, there are a lot of hemlock but the many deciduous trees provide nice fall colors and the Rhododendruns good privacy for some campsites. While the campground has many examples of stonework, the most impressive are the riverside swim area and day-use pavillion. The hillside loop has the longer, wider parking aprons with better privacy. The riverside loop has tent-only campsites at the river's edge. And, this lower loop is more accessible for RVs. The hillside or upper loop, however, finds parking aprons at reverse angle, which are not suitable for travel trailers. A lantern pole is located at each campsite. Float tubes are available for rent at the campground and firewood is also available for a fee. A Kids Fishing Derby is held annually the first Saturday in June; confirm with the ranger district office. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.
