River front campsites at Murphy/Peace Valley KOA.

The Murphy/Peace Valley KOA Campground in Marble, N.C., the newest jewel in the 475-park Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) system, will be celebrating its grand opening Friday through Sunday (June 17-19).

The Grand Opening Weekend at the KOA, located at 117 Happy Valley Road, begins with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Friday. Saturday’s events include arts and crafts, numerous giveaways, face painting, a fishing tournament, games for dads and kids, an ice cream social, an outdoor movie and pancake breakfast, according to a news release

On Sunday, campers can take part in a church service featuring Pastor Jeff of the Mountainview Community Church.

Campers will enjoy shaded RV and tent sites along the Valley River, as well as four luxurious lodges. At the campground, guests can wade into the water to cast their lines for trout in the stocked river or rent a tube and go on a lazy river float. They can also take a dip in the pool, visit the game room, pitch horseshoes or play volleyball. Pets are welcome, and there is a one-acre fenced pet play area.

The campground is just a short drive from whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River (Class III and IV rapids) or the mild, family friendly Nantahala River. Guests can take a scenic ride on the Cherohala Skyway, visit Fields of the Wood Bible Park or join in a class at the famous John C. Campbell Folk School.
