“Great free spot with access to Chatooga River and hiking trails.”

Overall Rating

This is a Nantahala National Forest campground. Small RV or tents only. Turnaround is tight. Camping is free and there are only 4 sites here. Only one site is set up to accommodate an RV but since a pop-up occupied that site, we parked on the gravel culdesac adjacent to a site and it worked well for our 16ft trailer. Nice vault toilet, well maintained. Lovely area in the Ellicott Rock Wilderness. Lots of hiking trails with great vistas and waterfall rewards. Chatooga River is gorgeous and offers great fly fishing. Only reason for 3 stars is the limited space and that your experience is completely dependent on who you get for neighbors. The sites are close together. You could have the place to yourselves, or you could be sandwiched in. Our experience was fine. The 1.7 miles of gravel road in is winding but doable with 2 wheel. The area is fantastic.
