John and I came up with the name Cane Creek
Campground because the campground sits on the Cane Creek mountain range
and Cane Creek itself runs freely just a few miles away. It is near
present day Snow Camp, in Alamance County, NC. As history has it some
hunters from Pennsylvania camped near the Cane Creek during the winter
of 1748. That winter brought snow two to three feet deep. The hunters
had to cut trees for fire wood so they cut them the level with the snow.
When the hunters and other settlers came back the following year they
recognized the cut trees and the area became known as, “Snow Camp”. Nearby there is Cane Creek Friends Meeting
Quaker Church. This church celebrated its 250 year history in October of
2001. It’s the oldest active meeting in Piedmont, NC. As you can see
there is a lot of rich history in this small town. We are anticipating
your visit with us at Cane Creek Campground and making history in Snow
Camp, North Carolina. We have been open for 13 years "OPEN" and are
looking forward to many more. Please see
our events page to find out the latest news and up coming events. John and I would like to dedicate the events page to the late John D.
Maness, Sr. who was the founder of a popular bluegrass festival
in Snow Camp, North Carolina and the
inspiration to continue to grow as a campground.
