Shaconage Vintage Trailer Gathering
Timberlake Campground Whittier NC
3270 Conleys Creek Rd
Whittier, NC 28789
Come join us for Shaconage 2022! This event is at a new location this year but still in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Shaconage Pronounced "Sha-kon-a-hey" - Is the Cherokee word for the Smoky Mountains, which translates to "land of blue smoke". The event will be held on May 12th thru 15th 2022 at Timberlake Campground 3270 Conleys Creek Rd Whittier NC 28789. This event was previously held at Moonshine Creek Campground. They are holding approximately 30 sites for us which is the entire campground minus some seasonally reserved sites. If we have more than 30 registered we will double up on sites as buddy sites with 2 trailers on each site. The sites are huge! This will only be for those who want to buddy up with others. If you do not want to buddy you can opt out. The fee is $45.00 per night per site plus $10 per person fee. If you are a party of 2 and stay 3 nights the cost would be a total of $155.00. This cost includes 1 free bundle of firewood and 1 free bag of ice per night per site. The campground has water and Electric with 15, 30 and 50 amp hookups but no sewer hookups. They do have a dump station or you may use their honey wagon service for a fee. On Friday evening we will have our White Elephant gift exchange which is always blast. The gifts will need to be in the $20.00 range and be vintage or camping related if you want to participate. We are looking to have a catering food truck on Saturday night 5/14/22 which you will pay the vendor directly. Afterwards we will have our prize drawings. Any moneys not used to cover costs will be given away at our prize drawing event. Teresa and I will be taking the reservations directly due to the park office being short staffed and the owner has never done a gathering or large event before. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information including phone number. Also the number and names of those in your party as well as who all will be in you camping circle, (the people you want to camp next to). This info is needed whether you plan to buddy site with someone or not so that your group will be somewhat together. Sometime in the first couple weeks of November we will start going down the list calling you book your sites. We will have a few options as for the way to pay including cash app and PayPal as well as snail mail. Payment in full will be taken and any cancelations up to one week before event will get a 100% refund. Less than a week will forfeit a one day $45.00 deposit. Stay tuned for a full itinerary. Any questions please comment in the discussion of this event or post in our group page Vintage Trailer Rallies of the Southeast.
