CARVC History

CARVC was organized by independent campground operators in 2004 from the combination of SCCOA – South Carolina Campground owners Association and NCCOA – North Carolina Campground Owners Association.  The overwhelming logic was that the two states had many parks adjacent to the border in Myrtle Beach and Charlotte.  Our Interstate highways fed each other on 77, 26 and 95.

The regional concept had worked well, and we had shared a regional Expo for years.  South Carolina needed an association director, and NC had an excellent director capable of managing both states.

The CARVC board of directors and its executive committee is a balance of park operators from North Carolina and South Carolina.  The proof of the merger’s success is in the continued growth of member parks and combined efforts in regulatory work and legislative efforts.
