Hi! and welcome to the forum from another Durhamite. I tend to camp more in the fall and early spring as the weather here is great for that. If you haven't already figured it out, this forum is the best thing that has happened since sliced bread when it comes to popups and camping. If you have any questions with remods or diy projects help can be found here. I have utilized it many times and their advice and guidance has been spot on.
I have discovered that NC has the best of both worlds ... the mountains and the beaches! NC also offers amazing State Parks!! I have been to Hanging Rock, Pilot Mountain, Falls Lake, Lake James, and Morrow Mountain State Parks! Check them out and have fun camping!!!!!!!!!
