Back Yard Campground

Tent camping on the banks of
beautiful Crab Creek

Penrose, nc

Welcome to "Back Yard Campground"!

           Hello, we are Doug and Lynn.  We hope you
 enjoy your stay with us in our Back Yard Campground!
We started the campground in 2016 after friends of the family pitched their tents down along the creek.  They shared their enjoyment with us, and we realized how much we enjoyed knowing they were down there camping.  We both have a great appreciation for God's creation, and decided to open our gates to you.  I am a retired minister, chef and carpenter and Lynn still works part-time as an X-ray tech.  We have five children and four grandchildren who also love Nature.   Lynn is a true  Blue Ridge native  and we both hope you enjoy the proximity to our towns, the mountains, rivers , streams and waterfalls.  The local apple orchards are also amazing!  Hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding  and rafting are only a few of the activities available within a short drive.  So, soak it all in, come back home to Back Yard Campground, watch the sunset and
                                          enjoy sweet dreams.

The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
