Directions:

  • Take US-1 south from Raleigh past Sanford to the US-15/501 exit to Carthage and Pinehurst (you will see the Regal Inn on your right just before you exit to the right).
  • Take US-15/501 South to the outskirts of Carthage where the speed limit drops to 35 mph (enforced!).
  • Where 15/501 veers left and continues to Pinehurst, you will continue to head straight (west) where NC-24/27 peels off into Carthage.
  • Continue into town until you reach a traffic circle which goes around the town’s courthouse.
  • Turn right and go halfway around the traffic circle (as if you had gone straight through the courthouse) and continue on NC-24/27 to the outskirts of town.
  • After you have passed a couple of convenience markets and a graveyard on your right, you will come to a “Y” intersection where you will turn left onto Bethlehem Church Rd. (On your right will be a green highway information sign with “Occoneechee Scout Camps” and an arrow pointing the way). What used to be an old gas station will be on your left in the “Y”. You will come to a very sharp curve almost immediately after turning ... go slow!
  • After about 8 miles of twisting country road, you will come to a stop sign.
  • After stopping, go through the intersection for less than a mile.
  • On your left you will pass a brick Methodist church before coming to the service entrance to Camp Durant.
  • The entrance to Durant is about a half-mile further on the left.
