Forsyth County completed a variety of improvements to Shady Grove Campground prior to the start of the 2011 camping season.

These improvements were made possible by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by voters in 2008. <br />
"Shady Grove Campground grows in popularity every year," Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Tommy Bruce said. "During recent camping seasons, our campsite rentals have continued to increase. We are proud to offer such a great amenity here in Forsyth County." <br />
