We are a privately owned campground located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Mile Marker 317.4 or just off highway 221. We offer full hook-up RV sites, both primitive and water/electric tent sites as well as cabins. Each site is equiped with a picnic table, fire pit and charcoal grill.
My name is Burnie Durand Parker, but I generally go by my middle name, Durand. My wife, Andrea, and I live here in McDowell (she is from Old Fort) and I have a career in health care from RN to paramedic, serving the residents of this county. An injury prompted a career change and that's when I started Parker Precision Knife and Tool Sharpening, and I love it. I love to help people bring their worn and trusted tools back to life. I sharpen and get rid of nicks in knives and tools and remove rust and treat the metal to prevent rust from returning. Let me help you sharpen your skills!
