Surry “glampground” open for business

Under Canvas is using just a portion of its 100-acre parcel. “The sunset tours are huge,” Margraff said. Greenlaw has been the favorite part of people’s stays here, she added. “We’re only using about 25 percent and that’s all we plan to use,” said Margraff.

General Manager Lisa Margraff said the opening has gone smoothly.  The Surry property is the company’s first East Coast location.

Captain and author Linda Greenlaw, who Under Canvas has contracted with to provide guests with sunset tours and lobster fishing trips, has been the star of the show, so to speak.  Under Canvas locates its campgrounds near national parks. In a few instances, the camps are a 30-minute drive from a national park. The company currently operates nine locations near Yellowstone and Glacier in Montana; Moab, Zion and Lake Powell-Grand Staircase in Utah; Mount Rushmore in South Dakota; Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee; and Grand Canyon in Arizona.

There isn’t electricity in the tents but there are portable chargers for smartphones and other devices. “You’re unplugging here, getting back to nature,” Margraff said. The chilly Memorial Day weekend had staff lighting fires for many guests who had never lit a wood stove before.

Part of what makes the campground a glampground is that the canvas tents are erected on platforms and include a flush toilet, shower and wood-burning stove as well as furniture — a bed, sofa, chairs and end tables. The glampground has 63 tents, some of which are staggered in an open field with a view of the bay. Other tents are nestled in the woods. There are also tiny canvas tents, called “hives,” for children.
