Pedro's Campground at South of the Border
On the day we left Savannah GA, heavy rain, wind and thunderstorms were forecast for the afternoon. We didn't quite make it to Fayetteville, NC as intended but decided to get off the road early because of the weather and check out the campground at South of the Border. It's actually in South Carolina, just south of the North Carolina border.
Anyone who has ever traveled I-95 in the Carolina's knows exactly what I'm talking about. Like Wall Drug in South Dakota, cutesy billboards advertise the place for 200 miles before you get there. The campground was $24.00/night for full hook-ups, had a lot of pull-through sites, but no WiFi. Because of the storms, we didn't get to explore the kitschy shops and restaurants. Maybe on another trip we'll ride that glass elevator tower with the sombrero on top!
Next stop: Charlottesville, VA.
