Over Columbus Day weekend we went camping with Grant's Cub Scout Troop at Morrow Mountain State Park, in NC. It was a long drive (about an hour east of Charlotte), but worth it. They had a great group camping area, a river, hiking trails, historical buildings to tour, and the ranger gave an interesting lecture on wildlife. Also, the kids seems to find at least half a dozen snakes to harass. A good time was had by all (except the snakes).
