Review for ELK SHOALS UNITED METHODIST CAMP INC, W Jefferson, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Our church family has been going to Elk Shoals for many years now. We tent camp, bring our campers, or stay in the Volunteer Inn. I prefer to tent camp, because I like to go to sleep listening to the New River as it is not far from our tents. But my experience with this camp goes back even further - back in the late sixties. Again it was a church group that we were with. We were arrived in a rainstorm and in the dark. We actually spent the first night in the old house there by the bend in the road. We have stayed in the main lodge and held planning retreats there. So my experience with Elk Shoals has been a long one. I love the place - just to be in the mountains is always a calming experience for me. One of the best events that has happened there in many years was the Interfaith camp that was help for at least 3 years. My 2 granddaughters had the privilege of attending this week-long camp. It was an eye opening event for them and one that they will always remember. I am concerned, however, about the condition of the beside the river camping area, the Volunteer Inn, and the bathhouse. Not much attention has been given to these areas in the last couple of years. The emphasis seems to have changed and not for the better, in my opinion.
