One word for this campground: beautiful
Seriously this place is nothing but beauty everywhere you go. The first day we arrived we were greeted with a pretty solid downpour that flooded our campground. Another advantage of being in an RV is that even if there is standing water you are still dry and with a 20 foot wide awning you can sit under a strong storm comfortably.
First Campground with Dazey
After picking up our newest family member, Dazey, in Asheboro we went straight to this campground. Nothing like trial by fire right? The good news is that she felt at home in the trailer right away and enjoyed running around camp on her leash. She is a camping dog at heart and is ready to rock and roll.
Short drive to Raleigh
The lake is just 20 miles from Raleigh, NC where we drove in for a cheeseless pizza at Trophy Brewing Co.
Hanging out with family
While there was some cell phone connection at the lake it wasn’t strong which meant we couldn’t watch any video. Perfect for hanging out with family and catching up on stories or taking photos by the lake.
Homey at Apex
If you need any hardware supplies there is a Home Depot about 9 miles down the road:

Sunrise and sunset
And here they are, your moments of zen…
Our campsite was all of 30 feet from the lake’s edge. So I was able to stroll easily down and get some nice photos of the sunrise and sunset on the water.
