For the first time almost 4 years (I think — time goes so fast) we found ourselves needing to winterize the Airstream, so we took one last trip to a full hook-up park to empty/blow out the tanks. Finding a good, safe, nice looking park is a little harder in the Raleigh area than we thought, but we came across Jones Station which has been under new ownership since January and looked good (note: they told us they were having internet problems, and their website seems to be up and down lately).

The park is located in Mebane, NC, an easy 46 miles drive from Raleigh, with a quaint downtown.  When you first see the park, it looks a little parking-lot-like, but only the first row is tree-less. We were in the third row, and you can see the nice trees and little lawn area. The owners are super nice and have had the park since January. They’re planning a second building phase even further into the woods.

The park is typically packed all the time — good for them, not great for campers looking for a full hook-up spot in the area, especially with really good internet!

Definitely take a trip to downtown Mebane too. There’s coffee (Reed’s), dinner (The Mebane Downtown Table), shopping Solgarden, Fifth Street Books, and a few bars.

We had a great time here and will go back soon!
