Camping for a Cause 2018 (2019 info coming soon) 

Twice yearly, we will donate all proceeds from campsite rentals on a Friday night to one of our favorite local non-profit organizations.

Our May, 2018 event's proceeds go to the Transylvania Animal Alliance Group (TAAG). And the September event will benefit The Haven of Transylvania County.

Our first event in May 2010 raised several hundred dollars for The Haven, a homeless shelter under design and construction here in Transylvania County.  The 2nd, in September 2010, helped us donate several hundred dollars to Friends for Life's Forever Farm, a sanctuary for senior and special-needs animals.  Since then, we have donated to several other local non-profits, such as  Charlie's Angels Animal RescueBrevard Little Theatre, and several others.

Together, we CAN make a difference.


Ash Ghoul, the Haunted Campground 

The Saturday before Halloween (26 Oct. in 2019), Ash Grove celebrates the holiday with cabin & campsite decorating contests, a costume contest, a (not too scary) haunted trail, bonfire, storytelling, treats and more.

Practice you best ghoulish laugh and join the fun!
