“Terrific campground and trails”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

I love camping at Lake Powhatan. Camp hosts were helpful and friendly. My trip got cut short this time due to a sick pup, but while we were there it was fantastic. Trails right from the campsite are always great, and full RV hookups all worked great. I wish there was a cell signal back on the lake loop - then I could stay there for lon... more

We had not made reservations, so we were happy to get an electric site during leaf season. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon at the end of October, and the staff at the gatehouse were very friendly and efficient. They were even sweet when our dog barked at them from our rig (very naughty!). At the time we stayed, the campground was b... more

“Clean, quiet campground in the woods”

Reviewed Oct 27, 2018

Overall Rating

We chose this campground to be close to Asheville and the mountain biking trails and weren't disappointed! It is a very well maintained campground and is right in the woods. The only downside is that we weren't able to get any cell reception or wifi. That makes it tough to get work done! We went mountain biking a few times right from o... more

“Terrific campground with lots of long trails and woods roads to walk”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Sayed here 11/10/2016 to 11/13/2016. We loved this place because of the lake-pond and the long trails nearby. Very good hiking that was convenient. Be sure to get a map online and print it to help navigate it all. Just very peaceful.

“Lovely Campground, with Easy Access to Asheville”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a wonderful campground, though Site #1 is not a wonderful site. It was the least shaded site in the entire campground. Our back window looked right out onto our neighbor’s site (#21), and Site #2 looked right out into our site. Avoid it if possible. We had reserved that site because it was the only electric site left when makin... more

Stayed in site 44 in the Lakeside Loop which had a nice and open back area with a nice view of the ridge line to the west. Our dog loved the open backyard so we highly recommend site 44. Very quiet campground with plenty of even during midweek. All sites are paved. AT&T service was very spotty for LTE. Our site was able to get cont... more

“Great weekend”

Reviewed Feb 26, 2018

Had a great weekend camping here. For those such as myself that like these reviews to include information about cell service (I work remotely and need a signal to work), let me first preface that I marked it as 1 bar of ATT, but that was rare. I would occasionally pick up a signal, but if I moved very far, it would go no service. So... more

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 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
