This camp is owned and operated by Ron & Lejuana Tennyson.   We recently retired and we wanted to start our own business where we could have personal interaction with people from different areas and backgrounds.

We bought Mountainside Campground as we love the area.  We like to ride the mountain roads on our motorcycles, Jeep the local trails and visit with old friends and make new ones!

We hope you will come to visit with us and enjoy your stay here at Mountain Side Camp as much as we love living here!
