Mayberry Campground, Mount Airy, North Carolina

                    Monday 4/21/2014

We took Hwy. 421 east to I-77 and headed north.
It was a fairly short drive, but beautiful drive with lots of color.
Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina and Virginia ahead of us.
Just south of Mount Airy we took I-74 to Hwy 106 to our Mayberry Campground in North Carolina.
The campground sign tells us to turn on Rustic Village, but the GPS tells us to continue on to Bunker Road, which is the road the campground is located on. Joe had called the campground prior to our travels, and ask if there were any special directions. The girl told Joe to just follow the GPS direction, so we did. It got us there, but we had to make a tight turn. The shortest route was to turn on Rustic Village like the sign said.
This is our current location. We have been here a week, and will be here until next Monday.
View of Mayberry Campground from the bus. ( We were told that the house in the picture is the place to go for our safe weather  spot by a girl in the office. The next day I heard the girl tell other people to go to Mount Airy Fire Fighters Station. I am going to the house, because that's what they told Joe).
We were given a pull through site #10. The best sites are 2, 3, 4, 5, 16, and 17 because of privacy and nice views, in our opinion.You can request a site when you make your reservations if you know the park, which we didn't. Site 2, 3, 4, and 5 also have sun in the morning on the patio side and shade in the afternoon.
The lower level would be better if tornado storms come through, but they are lower if it rains a lot. There is a pond at the end of the lower level.
We are on the upper level to the left when looking at this picture. You can not see our bus in the picture because we are further to the left in the picture. We had one thunderstorm Monday night, but no tornado warnings. The Appalachian mountains are to the west and north of the campground, which seems to protect this area more from strong storms. This place has been very busy with RV's coming and going daily. It is just off I-77 and I-74, making it a great route for snowbirds going north through to Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio which is our route. This route also goes to Pennsylvania via Virginia, and West Virginia.


  1. Did y'all experience any bad weather? We were lucky and the storms split and missed us. We are staying near Myrtle Beach until May 19th. Our grandson has his first communion on May 17th. Glad Joe is better.

  2. Hi Dusty. Yes we were Blessed and the storm went west of the Appalachians and fuller to the east of us. One short thunderstorm one night with no wind. Sounds like you are getting to enjoy family while waiting for warmer weather before heading north. We leave on Monday for Virginia.
