Tanglewood Park Campground , Clemmons, NC

Date of Stay:  Sunday August 12, 2012 (1 night)

Rate:  $31/night

Website:  Tanglewood Park
   4061 Clemmons Road
   Clemmons, NC 27012

Description:  Very near Winston Salem, NC.  Paved roads and parking pads on large sites with FHU (50A) and cable.  Unfortunately, several sites are very unlevel.  Call ahead to make sure there is a level spot.  No problem with that during the week.  Located near I-40 (exit 182) and easy off/on but no traffic noise.  We were on site 2 with a grassy field behind us and the canopy of old oak trees over us.  This is a full service Forsyth County Park that offers a Championship golf course, aquatic center, horse stables, tennis, soccer, pond fishing, arboretum, rose garden and a Manor House bed and breakfast.   Most of these amenities are an extra fee of course.  There’s a two mile paved multi-use trail that winds about the edge of the forest which has mountain bike trails.  (Using the address in your GPS takes you to the park office.  Be sure to look for the CG signs when you exit from I-40 instead.) 

Activities:  This was just a stop over for us but I fell in love with the place.  I went to the arboretum and rose garden in the evening and took time to walk the paved path in the morning.  I saw about 20 deer on that walk.  Great place to bike also.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpster in the back corner of the park but several trash cans in amongst the campsites.  A recycle can is at the bathhouse for cans and plastic bottles.
