Happening in August!


August is packed with interesting and fun events, including the upcoming 44th Annual NC Bluegrass Festival! Tickets are available in advance and at the door.  Take a look at this year's performers and join us at Tom Johnson's Camping Center.  The complete lineup and ticket details are online. Bring your chairs or blankets and soak up these bluegrass vibes!

Take a look at the outdoor adventure options.  The rangers at Lake James State Park will keep you educated and entertained.  I'm thinking of making reservations for the boat ride!  Each of these events is FREE, just call to reserve your place.  

See you in August!
