“Quiet, Clean, Convenient to Asheville”

Reviewed Aug 29, 2017

Overall Rating

We did not have a reservation and, unfortunately, all the full hookup sites were occupied, so we had to dry camp. No biggie, just needed a place to crash for the night. The campground was super clean, the sites all heavily wooded and private. Campsite had plenty of room, was level, and contained a picnic table and fire pit. Each lo... more

We recently spent 4 nights at Lake Powatan. Had no reservations but they were able to get a spot for 4 nights without having sites mid visit. The bathhouses were super clean. The bath houses are comprised of 2 rest rooms and 2 showers each are their own room. Nothing communal which I liked. The showers are push button and for one showe... more

We snagged a walk up, full hookup site at this very popular campground on a Tuesday morning (come early on a Sun, Mon or Tues if you're looking for a walkup) and stayed for 7 days. I wish we could have maxed out the 14 day limit, we loved it so much, but we had to move on to meet friends in Durham. The campground is immaculate, and... more

“Great location to Brevard and Asheville. Right near the blue ridge parkway”

Reviewed Mar 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We did not make reservations and found a handful of open walk up spaces when we arrived. Most walk up sites seem to be in the full hookup loop, maybe only one or two where in the electric/water hookup loop. We tried to call ahead and check walk in availability but no one ever answer the phone. Upon arrival we learned that the hosts man... more

We were shocked to find that the site we chose (thank goodness there were some left—helps that we got there on a Sunday evening) was full hook ups. Beautiful mountainside location, fully treed and private. Nice hiking/biking trails, great lake for swimming your dog in the off season (and probably nice for swimming your people in the su... more

This was our first time visiting this state park and had a great experience. We took a chance because we did not have a reservation and it was a long weekend. As it turns out, we got the last site available. Our site was tremendous; flat, large, and private (we were somewhat close to a walkway that led to the rest rooms but it was... more

“Remote but Close to Asheville”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2015

Overall Rating

We spent 3 nights here over Labor Day weekend. We have pop up but we were on a non-electric site due to lack of available hook up sites. It was a smaller site and lacked a lot of privacy. A few things that stood out that we liked were: concrete top picnic tables, 2 level lantern/trash hanger, biking/hiking trails, and the restrooms/sho... more

We camped here in early April 2015. Many of the sites are not reservable. You have to show up, which we did. Lakeside and Big John Loops are more suitable for trailers and rvs. The other loops are more suitable for tents and smaller trailers. Lakeside has full hookups, while in Big John some sites have electricity. WE had some ce... more

“Very quiet and beautiful campground”

This is a great place from which to explore the Asheville North Carolina area. Our price was for a full service walk-up site. Unserviced sites are about $22 per night. Most of the full service sites are for walk-ups only and cannot be reserved. A tip: reserve an unserviced site for mid week arrival and you can probably get a full s... more
