Originally known as Camp Town, Campton lies just off the Mountain Parkway. Allowing the town to grow in business and industry, the Mountain Parkway’s completion signaled the beginning of a new era for Campton. An ideal place for hiking and climbing, nearly 14000 acres in the northwestern part of Wolfe County are included in the Daniel Boone National Forest. On your next outing, discover Campton. You’ll soon be glad you did.
