Happy Thanksgiving!

From our family at Mecca Camp Resort to yours, we hope everyone had a wonderful, safe and Happy Thanksgiving! It was truly a blessed day here in East Tennessee as our kids came to spend the holiday with us. Our hearts were full and so were our stomachs!

It Was A Camping Holiday

The weather was absolutely beautiful in Tennessee this Thanksgiving! With temperatures in the 70s, we were blessed to host two camping families on Thanksgiving weekend. Both arrived on Thanksgiving Day and one family stayed through the weekend. They enjoyed the mountains in the fall, the beautiful weather, and had a warm fire each night. We couldn't have been happier to host them during this holiday weekend.

We were also able to enjoy taking our kids and my parents to the Bald River Falls, Buc Bald Mountain, and the Tellico Plains Museum and Visitors Center. It was a great time showing everyone around and spending some quality family time.

Soil Survey

Just before Thanksgiving, we were visited by a Soil Scientist who evaluated the soil to support the campground. They drilled holes, took measurements, and identified the soil's ability to support water and septic services for Mecca Camp Resort. We will receive the soil map and survey officially this week and provide it to our Architect, who will utilize the information in the development of the Master Plan!

Christmas Is Around The Corner

As is tradition in our household, the day after Thanksgiving we always make our way out to the local tree farm to cut down our annual Christmas Tree. This year was no different as we took our kids and my parents down to Sweetwater and cut down a beautiful White Pine for our living space at Mecca Camp Resort. We also started putting up Christmas decorations and lights around the building. Soon our big inflatables will arrive and we will put them in our field for everyone to see as they drive by.

This time of year, the spirit is certainly alive in our household and we look forward to sharing that with anyone who stays with us!


Once again, from our family at Mecca Camp Resort to yours, we hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and we look forward to you staying with us sometime soon! And if you're ever in the mood for some Boondocking on a nice weather weekend in Tennessee, please remember to stop by and see us!
