When should I show up?
We will be arriving around 2:00 PM on Friday, camping that night, and then leaving mid-afternoon on Saturday. Feel free to come early or stay late.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
From I40, take U.S. Highway 221 north to the Linville Falls area, then turn right on Highway 183 and follow until it dead ends at 181. Turn right and follow Highway 181 for about 3 miles to Gingercake Road (the second intersection with Gingercake Rd). There are signs for Table Rock from here on out. Bear left after 0.3 miles onto Table Rock Road (FS 210). It's 5.4 miles on this curvy, narrow, bumpy gravel road to FS 210B - turn right here, and go another 1.3 bumpy miles. Turn right again onto Old Table Rock Road, which becomes paved and goes through a series of impossibly steep switchbacks before ending at the picnic area. All the gravel roads are bumpy, but maintained, and should be passable in passenger cars.
WHERE ARE WE CAMPING?
From the parking area, head south on the trail located near the pit toilets. Within a few minutes you'll be in the camping area. Look for our large geodesic tent (pictured below).
WHAT IF I'M UNSURE?
We get it - maybe this could be weird. We had an amazing time at our group camp last year. Read Jennifer's account and maybe you'll feel differently.
