In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew devastated the Ocracoke Island community, knocking out one of its prominent businesses, Beachcomber Campground.
Then, in 2019, during a family vacation to the Island, Drew Batts saw the potential in this property and moved to acquire it with his business partner, Clayton Jernigan. Since then, together, with family and friends, they've renovated and reopened the campground as Jerniman's (with the store to open as a restaurant in April 2020).
