Deerhorn Campground has been condemed and razed by Caldwell County. For many years this campground was a hangout for people wanting to party hearty. All you had to do was drive past on Brown Mountain Beach road and see the huge piles of beer cans to realize this. In all my years of camping, I don't think I've ever seen a more filthy or more disgusting campground. Thank God the county officials saw fit to eliminate this eyesore from the beautiful Wilson Creek recreation area.
