Recovery Campers at Hibernia Campground

A trip for anyone in any 12-Step recovery program (& their families).

Imagine relaxing next to a large lake, hiking some trails, waking up to the smell of a campfire and coffee brewing. Picture the fall colors in the flowers and the fresh spring air. Think about eating wonderful food, laughing, and most importantly, doing all this with recovering people! Some will share their stories, their favorite resources, and their program tools. Some will come only for Saturday night’s covered-dish potluck supper and the meeting; others will stay the entire weekend. No matter how long you stay it will be a marvelous time for 12-stepping.

This camping trip is for all recovering people and their families, friends, and pets. There will be a meeting each night and Saturday discussion groups. Saturday night is usually a speaker meeting.

If you don’t have gear or have never been camping, let go and come along. All you really need will be some warm clothes and personal items, a bath towel, a sleeping bag or warm blankets, a pillow, rain gear, flashlight, food & drinks for yourself (and to share), your eating utensils/plate, a bed in someone’s tent or camper, money to help pay for the ‘reserved recovery sites,’ and a lawn chair (actually, you can even skip the lawn chair if you want!). Your cost will probably be less than $10/adult for the entire weekend (kids don’t pay). We can only put two “rigs” (such as one RV or popup + one tent, or 2 tents) on a site with a maximum of 6 people/site. Some may wish to share their tent/camper with others. If coming for Saturday night’s meal/meeting only, bring a drink, plate, and utensils and any kind of covered dish – picnic type preferred – to share at the covered-dish meal. Firewood is not sold at this campground, so we’ll need to bring our own.

Kerr Lake State Recreation Area (which contains Hibernia Campground) is located just north of Henderson, NC. We will be back in Area 2 and have reserved 5 campsites: #92, 93, 94, 79, & 99. You can stay with us, or reserve (and pay for) your own site. To make your own reservations, call 1-877-722-6762 or go to: (first select Kerr Lake State Recreation Area under park name, then under “Find Camping Spot” select Hibernia Campground – Area 2). The chart shows all the campsites whether available or already reserved.

Directions: From I-85, take exit 214 onto road NC 39. Travel approximately 12ó miles and turn right onto Hibernia Road.

Remember that this trip is open to anyone in any 12-Step Recovery program, plus family members, significant others, friends, and pets (if in a cage or on a leash).
