About
Embrace the time-honored charm of rural living with an RV camping adventure in the rolling hills of eastern Catawba County, where history and natural beauty converge along the peaceful banks of Balls Creek. Less than a stone's throw from I-40, your journey transports you back in time as you encounter the historic splendor of a preserved 1913 gristmill, complete with a mesmerizing 28" waterwheel that gracefully ambles in the flow of a tranquil pond spilling over its age-old dam. As part of the National Register Historic Sites, this storied destination offers an idyllic setting for RV enthusiasts seeking a serene getaway contrasted by a touch of educational engagement. Stroll through the clusters of trails weaving around the property or take a step back into a simpler time within the walls of the 1890's General Store. History buffs and nature lovers alike will revel in the picturesque landscapes and the meticulously maintained mill, brought to life by the passionate caretakers of the Historical Association of Catawba County. Guests have the opportunity to enrich their outdoor RV camping experience, not only with rest under the canopy of heritage trees but with enriching tours that paint vivid stories of yesteryear's milling practices. Whether you're pausing on a cross-country trek or seeking a unique destination off the beaten path, this historical masterpiece awaits your discovery, offering both respite and education wrapped in the comforting blanket of pastoral America.
