If the idea of a campground has you recalling images of Wet Hot American Summer or, worse yet, Friday the 13th, have no fear—these scenic, nature-focused retreats are far from campy.
“We’ve invested at least $10 million into our facility in the span of nine years,” says Mike Ward, advancement director of Lutheridge Conference Center & Retreat, a sprawling 160-acre campus in the western North Carolina Mountains that just completed renovations on all their housing facilities. “What we offer is certainly different from the dingy, moldy idea people might have of camps.

In fact, he says, Lutheridge offers “anything a meeting planner could want or need,” including lodging for 180 people in hotel-like accommodations, food service provided by a professional chef, Wi-Fi, LCD projectors and an abundance of meeting spaces that includes 11 private rooms and a theater-style venue for up to 550 people (overflow hotels are located within three miles).
