Eagles Nest Camp is located in the southern part of Wayne County North Carolina and consists of 104 acres at 100 feet elevation. The camp is covered in tall pine trees mixed with oak and poplar.
Because it is in a subtropical climate, ferns and flowers of different varieties can be seen in the camp. Short winters and long summers, along with distinct springs and falls, make this ideal camping year-round.
The area, once populated with the Saponi and Tuscarora Indians, enjoyed the bounty of wild animals and lush fruits and berries. Deer, wild turkey, and small animals still inhabit the camp. Hunting is prohibited on the property.
Eagles Nest has five campgrounds: (1) The common area has 5 cabins sleeping 8 to 12 people each. (2) Porter's Point has 5 Adirondacks that sleep 8 people each. (3) Nephi's Nook has 7 Adirondacks that sleep 8 people each. (4) Helaman's Hollow has 7 Adirondacks that can also sleep 8 people each. The east side of the lake provides wilderness camping, which can accommodate up to 25 tent campers (primitive). There are fire pits at each campsite (except for the primitive camping).
Located by a five acre lake is the Gordon B. Hinckley Lodge that can accommodate up to 200 for meals, supported by a large commercial kitchen. Bathrooms and showers are available, as well. There is also a game room with a pool table, air hockey, and fuzz ball. Monson's Meadow is the sports area with soccer, beach volleyball, and softball. The lake provides swimming, canoeing, boating, and fishing (catch and release). There is also a chapel in the forest that will seat 75. Eagles Nest has a total capacity of 200.
