This is a nice park. It's well laid out and maintained with large RV sites. It's a short 5 mile drive into Mt. Airy where we'll tour and get to know all about Andy Griffith.
We have all heard the statement, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do!". Well, I suggest that when in Mt. Airy, to as Sheriff Andy Taylor and Barney or Goober did!" We intend to go eat lunch at Snappy Lunch, see Floyds Barber shop and Wally's Service Station and other places of note from the show dialog. By the way, if you're a fan of The Andy Griffith Show, the annual Mayberry Days celebration is held in September. Sounds like fun ! You can go to, www.visitmayberry.com or www.mountairy.org There is also two other celebrities who lived here. Most of us "older" peeps have heard of Chang and Eng Burke "the Siamese Twins!" They were twins from old Siam, now Tiawan, conjoined at the abdomen. They were famous in the mid 1800's and farmed here in Mt Airy. They married local sisters, of the Yates family. Today they'd be considered "rock stars" and made very good living on their notoriety and tours. They together had 21 children and now hundreds of decendents have a yearly reunion here.
Another thing, unexpected as it were, is a huge granite quarry. In fact, the worlds largest granite quarry on the edge of town. The North Caorlina Granite Quarry is well known for its consistent color and quality granite.
