“Beautiful park. Big rig ok. Make reservation ”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2019

Overall Rating

Amazing state park! Beautiful woods surrounding sites. Great hiking and I think biking. DO NOT TRY TO USE THE WALKUP FEATURE ON RESERVATION SITE. It’s a hike off the highway but worth it if you have a reservation. We parked our 40’ fifth wheel no prob. B

“Awesome place in the woods! We saw a cub and a deer!!!”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2019

I love this place! It might be because I saw my first black bear and a deer but the campground was pretty awesome too! This was our first experience without hookups and everything worked out perfectly! Initially, we did not like our spot very much, our area was surrounded buy tents and we were afraid we would be annoying other peop... more

Reviewed Jun 24, 2019

This has to be one of my favorite spots ever. Spotless, quiet, secluded. Our site was perfect. Shielded from any neighbors and quite large. Nice bathrooms and showers. Some cell service, but not enough to do real work or streaming. Campground hosts were top notch. Entire site was raked and spotless for our stay. Great network of Mounta... more

Very green and spacious park but our site was especially tight. Research carefully on site spacing when choosing what site you reserve.

“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
