Beechnut Family Campground, Mount Airy NC

Beechnut Family Campground, Mount Airy, NC (episode 11) Subscribe now for other campground reviews!

In this episode, Our family hits the road again with our camper, Hazel.  We are taking the gang on a trip to do some hiking and zip lining - the Zip Lining is something we've looked forward to for a while, and that will be in another episode! (We had to break this weekend up!)

We check into Beechnut Family Campground in Mount Airy, NC super late on a Friday night. Someone else had parked their rig on our spot, but we just moved in next door, and probably ended up with one of our best camping spots yet. We get Hazel all set up and in the morning, we take a tour of the camp before heading to our weekend adventures.

Beechnut Family Campground has three stocked ponds, three swimming pools, some outdoor games, and a snack bar with a large picnic area you can rent. In the summer season, they sell seasonal pool passes. The grounds are beautiful and pretty wide open, although the sites are packed relatively closely around one of the ponds. There are a bunch of seasonal/permanent campers set up there, but they also offer spots for weekend or nightly guests. The campground is run by a friendly family, and they're also farmers who have a cow pasture next door and several roosters run loose.

Overall it was a very peaceful weekend home base for our adventures this time, and we would love to come back during the summer!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this adventure!
