WoW, what can I say.
Just spent 10 days up at Ela. You won't find better treatment anywhere. Enjoyed our cabin stay. It was nice and clean upon our early arrival. We've been staying at Ela a number of years now. It never disappoints. Looking forward to our spring 2021 visit.
Trick treating for kids in the campground on Halloween??
Anything planned for the kids on Halloween?
Trick or treating to campers?
This is our goto place we have been coming here for 2 years now and love it and love the people.
Thank you to everyone at the ela camp ground for all you have been doing for my mom. Thank you for helping her with laundry, food, doing benefits and letting us use the cabin this past weekend. You all have been amazing!!! Angela Hill
Pamela Martin of the Ela Campground near Bryson City wrote to us about a fund raiser that is planned for Memorial Day weekend to help with medical expenses for a couple of their employees.

The events will honor John Miller, who has recently passed away, and his wife Mikki Miller who is struggling with her own health issues, along with Angela Hill who is fighting her own battle with various cancers.

If you're the praying type, please keep them all in your prayers.

Events are planned at the campground on Memorial Day weekend. Friday evening, May 22nd Ela Campground is the main fund-raising day. Expect multiple events including dinner and an auction, a chili cook off and scavenger hunt, a corn hole tournament, 50/50 raffle, a live DJ with Karaoke and a performance by JP Garner. Other events are still in the planning stages.

If you can help, or would like more information, please contact Pamela at [email protected].

I am sorry to all of our campers about our wifi problem and direct tv. We have been trying to get the situation fixed but our service techs never seem to come when they say they will, it has been a honest to goodness chore trying to get any customer service through our providers, please remember to use a hot spot until we get this situation resolved.

09/10/2020

If others feel this way, please share!

09/05/2020

Just to give an update. We are experiencing technical difficulties with our WIFI and DTV, we have been trying to get this taken care of but we do not know at this time when the service tech's will be out. So Sorry for any problems this may cause you, but we suggest using a hot spot on your phone when coming here.

Hello happy campers, wanted to let everyone know that our pool is shut down until further notice. Sorry for the inconvenience, but our river is open to public use and you may go tubing or kayaking or just cool off in the river.

05/12/2020

Hi fellow campers, we will be opening up this weekend on Saturday the 16th of May! We will only be open at 50% capacity, and therefore can only rent out every other cabin and every other site. Pool has to remain closed at this time, we still can not be in groups larger than ten, and we still have to do social distancing to be safe! All our campground activities which include fundraisers, performers, pot lucks, game nights,
movie nights or activities for children have to be postponed until further notice, so please have fun camping, fishing, tubing, and being with family and friends! I know this is a hard situation and maybe disappointing , but we must remain safe to the best of our abilities due to covid- 19.

03/14/2020

Hey Happy Campers and Face Book Friends, in light of the situation being what it is with the Corona Virus we think it will be in the best interest of everyone if we push the benefit back until Saturday April 25th, I am so sorry for the inconvenience but hope to see you in April!

Hey Happy Campers! Giving you an update about the March 21st benefit coming up. There is going to be vintage sports cards at the auction and giving away as prizes for the scavenger hunt, and the value ranges from 20.00 bucks on up.! Some cards are 1 of a kind!! Collectors welcome and this is a good way to donate to a worthy cause and leave with a family heirloom! Other items for the auction will be a laptops , native American beaded jewelry and handmade afghans , along with a household radio and glass bowels and other misc objects.

Now this is a letter from the lady, Angela Hill who wanted to say something: Never in my wildest thoughts would I have believed I would hear that I had stage 4 lung cancer and brain cancer! We plan our lives hoping to do all we can , but when fate steps in we have to rethink what is important.

I understand that people have gone out of their way to help me to live some of my wishes out! My heart is full! When I think how people can get together to help a stranger in need, There is so much good left in the world!

People spend a lot of time showing what is wrong in the world, but when everyone comes together to donate goods, pay bills, bake food, and pray, my thoughts are that God is with us.!

He is trying to use my disabilities to show the world that we can be good, we can have peace and still can love one another. Thank you for everything, and GOD BLESS YOU, my heart is full.
