Byrds Branch Campground – Elkin NC

by | Mar 14, 2020

Byrds Branch CampgroundWe discovered Elkin, NC last year when we visited Mt. Airy with all things Andy and Mayberry. A day before we left the area, we learned there were a number of award winning vineyards in the area. At one of the vineyards, we meet a couple who were staying at Byrds Branch Campground. Wanting to return to the area to visit the vineyards, we stayed at Byrds Branch Campground for a week. Our plans expanded to also take in a number of the hiking trails and enjoy the quaint community of Elkin, NC. We found the campground to be family friendly, reasonably priced and in a perfect location to enjoy all things Elkin, NC and Yadkin County.

The Vineyards

Checking into Byrds Branch Campground, our owners gave us a four page list of all the fun things to do in the area. Wanting to take in a number of wineries and vineyards, the list had 30 vineyards and tasting rooms clustered in 9 groups by mileage. This saved Joan and I so much time in our research and driving time to enjoy as we planned our wine tastings for the week. We were able to visit 7 vineyards this go round leaving so many when we turn to the area.

The Restaurants

This list also contained a full page of area restaurants from simple fast food, local favorites and several up and coming brew pubs. Balancing our time between home cooking in the RV, we dined at a few of the local favorites enjoying Skull Camp Smokehouse and Brewery and Mazzini’s.

Hiking and Biking

The campground list continued with a third full page of hiking and bike trails. The listing shared trail length and difficulty. Two of the trails experienced were steps from the campground where we saw waterfalls, streams and a treat with one ending at a local vineyard.

We prefer staying at a family owned campground where available. We like the local feel and friendliness we often experience. This was certainly the case at Byrds Branch Campground in Elkin, NC and we look forward to returning.
