On this camping trip, not only will you mix and mingle with the folks you've grown to love (or hate) over the years with the Maryland Outdoor Club (MOC), but you'll also get to meet folks from sister club, the Atlanta Outdoor Club (AOC), ten hours south. So, how about a little relaxing halfway camping to celebrate the three day weekend? Are you in or are you out?

Each organization will be booking 35-person side-by-side campsites at the B.W. Wells area of the Falls Lake State Recreation Area in Wake Forest, N.C. Falls Lake is a 12,000-acre lake with 26,000 acres of woodlands. The park offers ample opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming, walking, mountain biking, and much more along a portion of the state's Mountains-to-Sea Trail. And, it's approximately a 5-hour drive, traffic pending, from the central location of either club.

Additionally, Falls Lake lies 18 miles from Eno River State Park where there are even more hiking trails to suit the adventurer's appetite. The campground is 13 miles to Durham and approximately 18 miles to Raleigh as well.

Amenities at the campground include: drinking water, showers, grills, picnic tables, fire rings, and benches.

We will be loosely organizing optional daily activities like hiking, kayaking, and more. Perhaps some friendly field games too?
