After leaving our friends home we made our way North to Mr. Airy, NC and the Mayberry Campground. Large campground, the grounds are clean, and the views are not bad. The spaces are not spacious but we had full hook ups.

We did take the time to visit a few of the spots made famous by the Andy Griffith Show. Though, of course, it was not filmed here it is were he grew up and there are reproductions of the jail, courthouse, Wally's Service Station, plus they have tours you can take in squad car reproductions.
