I am about to organize a cycling camps and would like advise concerning the best place for it. We are looking for a low traffic area with good weather around february march, nice roads (some 5km or more hills, etc), nice pavements.
Feel provide any details (weather stats, ammount of roads, available house rentals, etc. etc.
thanks in advance,
Greenville, SC or Asheville, NC are great places to base rides out of. (they are about 50 miles apart). Greenville has better access from outside the area. I used to live in Greenville and the cycling is very good there.
Also consider Boone, NC farther north. Great climbs there too.

Do you know what is the temperature in march?
usually t-shirt weather 2nd half of February, then F-ing HOT May-Oct.
good climbs in Boone.
Weather for Cherokee, NC, just east of Great Smokey Mountains NP:

Not too shabby.
Let us know if you meet "bubba". There are still a few up there. I still have family that 'shines up yonder.

Are you joking or being serious?
I consider that shorts and arm warmers weather, if we're talking about February and March.
And no, there are no hills worth mentioning in Florida. Highest point is about 350ft above sea level.
Great mtb there also.
A few times in March in Asheville, NC it's been pretty cool (around 10C), drive to the other side of the continental divide and the temp goes up a good 5-10deg.

I will look at the blue ridge prkway. One friend also talk me about Table Rock SC. Anyone know that place?
Stay away from Table Rock at all costs!!!!!!!!!
At least until I get my reservation in first You'll love it there and there will be at least 30-40 other Canucks hanging out there. Some great climbs from there, Caeser's Head is about 35minutes to the top.

Maybe you could run 'shine in your water bottles on your 6.8. The revenuers would never figure to look there.
