While doing some research on camp history at the Transylvania County Library, we came across this photograph of some Rockbrook Campers from 1923. The label on the back of the photograph indicates it was taken at a local waterfall, (believed to be Triple Falls ) which is located in today’s Dupont State Forest. Dupont State Forest was founded between 1995-2000 and is a 10,300 acre state forest featuring over 9 spectacular waterfalls. In the early days of Rockbrook campers got to visit these waterfalls. At some point the property fell into private ownership and was not reopened for visitors until 1995. We now offer our campers trips to Dupont, just like we did in 1923!
Let us know if you remember any waterfall trips from when you were a camper. In our next blog post we will feature more about our local waterfalls.
