Camping in the Carolinas 

Adventure travel site Gorp has posted an article listing the top 10 Carolina campgrounds just in time to help you plan your summer vacation. An index of the sites listed (I don't think they're in any particular order):
  1. Balsam Mountain Campground (Cherokee, NC)
  2. Big Creek (Cove Creek, NC)
  3. Lake James State Park (Morgantown, NC)
  4. Hanging Rock State Park (Danbury, NC)
  5. Frisco Campground (Frisco, NC)
  6. Merchants Millpond State Park (Sunbury, NC)
  7. Ocracoke Island Campground (Orcacoke, NC)
  8. Cherry Hill Campground (Mountain Rest, SC)
  9. Leroy's Ferry Campground (McCormick, SC)
  10. Hunting Island State Park (Beaufort, SC)

Reading this article makes me want to get my backpack and tent down out of the attic and hit the trail. Hopefully we will find time this summer to visit at least one of these beautiful, secluded camping spots. Lake James is at the top of my list right now, but Cherry Hill also sounds nice.
