“Gorgeous campsite!”

This campsite is very well maintained. Friendly camp host. It was pleasant our first night with mostly families and retirees camping. Not so much Saturday night as a huge tent camping group arrived with either young adults or teenagers that were noisy. So I would avoid this if you are only coming for Saturday night camping. Every other night was great and not so crowded. Nice short hike to a waterfall available as well as a river trail where I believe you can tube and definitely fly fish. Short drive to Mt. Mitchell state park for those who don’t want to hike to the summit from the campground. A moderate to strenuous 5.6 mile hike if you are not used to hiking. Also no cell coverage (Verizon)! A plus when you want to escape 😁

Spoke to several campers and I don’t think any carriers were receiving. Long gravel road to entrance, but still easily passable for all vehicle types. Only taking stars away for noise Saturday night.

In the Pisgah National Forest, its Open April - October. The campground is located on South Toe Rd, Burnsville, NC.

There is an office 828-675-5616 and a camp host.
46 first come first serve sites primitive, 2 electric sites, and 6 huge group sites. 1-877-444-6777 to reserve group sites.

Some sites along the river, all have nice trees between...modern showers and toilets . Each site has a parking area tent area fire ring and a picnic table. water is available in designated spots. Hiking & biking trails, fishing, tubing and many other recreational activities available and ice and firewood available. They have weekend programs Mem. Day to Labor Day. Good base for making a summit HIKE to Mt. Mitchell the highest peak in the east, at 6, 684 ft.

The road (hwy 80 Lake Tohoma Rd) going up is steep and winding so long trailers may be hard to get up there...

Nice and cool, quiet, and peaceful!

Singles $22.00 Doubles $44, Electric only 2 sites $29, Group camps $65 per night.

I have Verizon phone and had no service.
