Easily Book Campgrounds and RV Parks in Durham, North Carolina

About Durham

Durham RV parks and campgrounds, as well as Chapel Hill RV parks and campgrounds, are spread around the outskirts of the metro area, with a few only a few miles from the city centers. This part of the country has outstanding natural features, so it isn’t any wonder why most North Carolina camping takes place in the hills, valleys, and forested areas between the towns.

The Durham and Chapel Hill areas of central North Carolina have the benefit of being a relatively easy drive to the Atlantic coast to the east, and a relatively easy drive up to the Appalachians to the west. The metro is also within an easy weekend drive of spots in Virginia and South Carolina. Even so, the Durham and Chapel Hill area has plenty to offer folks who are looking to set up camp, get outdoors, or just spend time locally.

Some of the best North Carolina camping can be found within several miles of downtown Durham. Among the most popular spots are Jordan Lake and Falls Lake, where Sandling Beach is a major draw for out-of-towners. Jordan Lake camping is the quintessential Sandhill forest and lake experience. Venture further south from Jordan Lake to Harris Lake County Park, or to Raven Rock State Park, along the Cape Fear River.

The cities of Durham and Chapel Hill have plenty to offer visitors. There’s the Nasher Museum of Art and the Carolina Theatre for the culture fans, as well as a number of informative and engaging venues and points of interest from Duke University. History buffs will find this area delightful, like the Duke Homestead and Tobacco Farm, Bennett Place, Stagville Plantation, and Ayr Mount Plantation. For the kids, try the Museum of Life and Science and the Duke Lemur Center. It’s hard to not have a good time around Lemurs, so it’s basically a sure thing.

No matter what your plans or ambitions, Durham RV parks and campgrounds can accommodate the most diverse interests. Just hitch up and head on out to one of the most vibrant corners of our country.
