In 2022, the owners of Rusty's Roost Rentals and River Camps reached out to Loren Deyton with the Yancey County Parks & Recreation and asked how they could help with the department's baseball facilities.
After some discussion it was decided that a new batting cage at the Cane River Park would allow more teams to practice at the same time and get better use of the facilities.
Rusty's Roost donated the entire amount required to purchase and install the new batting cage.
A veteran and family owned business, Rusty's Roost offers luxury campsites along the North Toe and Cane Rivers in the Green Mountain community of Yancey County. Their camping options provide for the perfect “glamping” escape to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. While “glamping” in the 16x20 tents, guests are provided with cozy linens and furnishings along with plenty of privacy. There are hot water showers, fire pits, outdoor cooking stations or grills and more.
Deyton and Yancey County Parks & Recreation would like to thank Rusty's Roost for their generous donation and support of the youth of our community.
