We are members there also and really like it. We are about 45 minutes away from there and go quite often. I have put a lot of pictures on Campground Gallery.

We bought a membership off of ebay so I am the 2nd owner of my membership. I have the basic level as I don't think I will use the cabins or the Gettysburg resort enough to spend the extra money. It would be to be able to register sooner for the big weekends that fill up .

They will try to sell you an upgrade at which point you are back to 3 transfers.

We also use coast to coast. One trip to Camp Hatteras saves enough for the yearly fee.

I always liked to get a site with a lake view and not too far from a bath house.
But that was when we were in a popup. Now we have the 30 ft TT so we don't need a bath house as much now. Hope to see you one day also.

Most of the loop sites (L sites) with the exception of 1 or 2 of them (higher numbers) could handle your rig. THey have a lot of long sites. I would stay away from anything on or backing up to peachtree if you are that long.

A coworker is a member of Sycamore and one of the membership clubs. All I can say is that they love the place as that is all I hear them go to except for one place this past year. She did say that there is an issue with the too few FHU's there, but there is a honey wagon that goes around.

Also, not sure if this makes much difference or not, but some of the dealers in teh Charlotte, NC area give people who purchase RV's, 30 nights of camping at Sycamore. There is a catch to it. You have to send in for a voucher and most of the nights have to be week nights or something. It's a ploy from Sycamore to try and get you to buy in. So just be aware, that you might have a lot of "nonmembers" there.

They also have very strict rules. She was telling me about a member being banned for a short period for his attitude or something he did.

We got the 30 night thing with the purchase of our camper in 2010. Right when the whole world was being laid off and the economy was collapsing. We had to sit for the sales pitch and they were still commanding a LARGE premium on the membership. We politely declined and when asked about the restrictions on the free nights, you can use it any time Nov-March or weekedays only March -Nov...since we are not retired folk, that was a wasted trip. However I did get some follow up calls regarding resales, so I was able to educate myself on the details of the membership and in the event NC fixes 485 in South Charlotte and 74 going out of town at rush hour, we may consider it. Until then, it is a nice place, but not nice enough to command the premium due to our logistical challenges getting there. Plus it is in the middle of NOWHERE!

schrecker96, that sounds normal for the timeshare visits we made that were a waste of our time.

we have never had a probelm (but then again, we try to be courteous campers). We have never really seen anyone annoying there. The staff has been really nice every time we are there and that is quite a bit. Our 1st trip of the year will be to there. That will be 3/23-3/25. Anyone else gonna be there that weekend?

I too am still debating a C2C membership as there are only a few CG's in NC that are in it. I guess one week at Hatteras would justify the membership IF I can actually book there 60 days out during camping season. That's what I'm trying to decide on. I was also told the CG's limit how many C2C members are that at a time.
We too fell for the "30 free nights of camping" at Sycamore Lodge after buying our TT last March. It was a 2 hour "tour" with the sales grind at the end. The other nights were useless for a family, I believe Sunday through Thurs. Nice CG, but yes, it is near nothing. I believe Pinehurst was about 30 minutes away.
