Summary:

While in North Carolina, we discovered Tanglewood County Park and RV Park in Clemmons. We spent four nights in the Tanglewood campground while exploring the rest of the extensive 1,100-acre park.

Tanglewood Park is a destination in itself! With two full 18-hole award-winning golf courses, two clubhouses, a par 3 course, and a driving range, Tanglewood is a popular destination for golfers. The park contains miles of wide asphalt trails that are perfect for walking, jogging, and biking. You will also find horseback riding, multiple playgrounds, a seasonal water park and pools, tennis courts, a dog park, and acres of open fields and shaded forests.

Take a relaxing and peaceful stroll through their arboretum, manicured gardens, and children's garden, or spend a day at the lake and rent a paddle boat or go fishing. There are fees for many activities, such as the water park, horse rental, and golfing, but the charges are reasonable.

With so many adventures available in one convenient location, Tanglewood offers something for everyone, without even leaving the park! We found Tanglewood RV Park the perfect stop for discovering all that this county park has to offer. Our family loved our time there, and are anxious to return.
