After discussing in the meetup thread, I'm planning to camp and meetup with any other folks that want to head out to Boone Fork Campground near Lenoir, NC the weekend of March 1 - 3. It is listed on Google maps and you should be able to find it fairly easy. There is a campground sign there at the Mulberry Creek Rd intersection so you shouldn't miss it. The campground is semi-closed and isn't maintained anymore and seems to see very little use. I asked at the ranger station if it was ok to camp there and was told it was fine and was just treated the same as dispersed camping (primitive, no fee, pack out your trash, etc). The road in is gated at a fishing pond where you can park and it's an easy flat road walk just under a half mile to the campground. There is a nice creek at the site for water and several trails leading out to do some hiking. Looks to be plenty of downed wood laying around for a nice fire. The cell service with Verizon is slim to none FYI. I really like this place and was just out there this weekend. Out in the boonies and quiet. It also appeals to me since I'm still nursing a sprained ankle and it's easily accessible Would love to get to meet some other bushwhackers from the area, so come on out! It'll be informal and do whatever you want to do.....I'm at the least planning on burning some wood and eating some good campfire grub Post up here or PM me if you're interested or have any questions. Looking forward to it!
