“A + resort but steep and tight”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2019

Overall Rating

The positive comments abound about this terraced Park like camground that is extremely well cared for. BUT, you should feel comfortable driving on a steep narrow road to the entrance and within the campground. You should be comfortable maneuvering in tight sloped spaces with trees and rocks lining the road. There are three sections... more

“Beautiful & Convenient”

Reviewed Jan 17, 2019

Overall Rating

Stayed overnight on our way through the Asheville area. Very unique location. The final 1/2 mile or so of road is a little snug, but manageable, if you happen to pass a truck or rig coming the other way. Quick & easy check-in. The topmost level was closed for the winter, due to the potential for wind. Middle deck was great, though -- a... more

“Unique Mountainside Experience ”

Reviewed Jan 02, 2019

Overall Rating

Unique campsites carved into the side of a mountain make for a one of a kind camping experience. Our backed up to small creek and felt like and oasis. We could hardly see our fellow campers. We will definitely be back to try the upper levels with decks and mountain view.

“Immaculate and well laid out”

Reviewed Dec 01, 2018

Overall Rating

We only planned to stay 3 days, but ended up staying 6. In order to accommodate our additional dates we moved to another site. We have a small 20 ft trailer and were able to negotiate the "hill" easily. I've uploaded my blog post about it, which will help with pictures to get a sense of how the campground it cut into the side of a m... more

This is an excellent, clean campground that is easily accessible from I-40. Check-in was efficient and friendly. They escort to your site and help you park.

“Extremely uncomfortable for large rigs”

Reviewed Oct 05, 2018

Overall Rating

The combination from inclines and turns made it extremely uncomfortable to enter past the secure gate. Our 43 footer and truck suffered from the inclines and turns, causing scrapes. The managers kept telling us we could make it and that bigger rigs have made it no problem, assuring us we were fine. Our fifth wheeler is too close to... more

“Great Place to stay!!”

This is an excellent, clean RV park that is easily accessible from I-40. Check-in was efficient and friendly. There are 3 tiers with the top tier having awesome mountain views everywhere you look. However, there is no shade, so that's the trade off, but we only had direct sun for a few hours each day, so wasn't bad at all. The lowest t... more

We booked last minute for forth of July weekend and luckily they had a cancellation on the top level (best views). All of the sites with decks and swings were taken but we will be staying at site 35 when we come back in the fall. Very quite a peaceful up here.

“Quiet RV Park with Access to Asheville”

Reviewed May 17, 2016

Overall Rating

Easily our favorite of the RV parks in the Asheville area that we've visited. Well cared for with large pretty well spaced sites. Enough distance from the highway to kill the noise. Trees, native vegetation, a creek. Nice laundry and showers. Decent walking up and down the park with plenty of dog waste stations. Friendly and accommodat... more
