Thanks D&J. I looked at the Falls Creek SP but they are closed the entire month of October due to paving in the park.
That looks like it is prime camping time, but they do what and when they can I guess. Birchwood looks good too. We really don't care where, even have a feeler out for Concord Mills just north of Charlotte. Trying to e-mail security and not having a lot of luck.
We have done Cabelas in the west and figure Bass Pro might be as gracious as their competitor.
Wish we were heaing out today. Weather is SOOOOOOO good.
alas, have an airport run this PM and then off!
