Camping season is just around the corner. Wendy & I have taken a new position in Alabama with the company so we will not be back this coming season. Just wanted to let you all know that we really enjoyed working with our customers the last 2 years. We are excited about our new position, but we will miss everyone here at Watauga. The new managers will be taking over at Watauga this year, I'm sure they will continue to give you guys great service as you come and enjoy Watauga Dam Campground.
