Overall Rating

This is a beautiful campground in a rustic setting in the mountains of NC. They have cabins, tent sites, and RV sites, and we saw all three in use. All are heavily shaded. A small but active creek runs through the campground providing wonderful background noise. Our RV site, #74, was especially nice as the creek ran behind the site (the back of our motorhome jutted out over the creek) and then curved around our camping side where we had a private wooden deck over the creek! Some of the sites are small - our driver's side slide was about two feet away from touching our neighbor's awning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and there are many places to go hiking nearby. There's a real sense of community in the campground, other campers out and about, interested in chatting, etc. The drawbacks for us were the lack of any open space to play with our dogs, and the lack of Wi-Fi. They have a hotspot in their office which you can use for occasional connectivity. AT&T coverage is poor, Verizon is moderate, but with our booster we were able to get good connections with both. We received no over-the-air TV channels, but the campground does offer cable TV for a daily fee. The route to the campground is a little tricky but doable in a big rig. Be sure to get the directions from the campground, as one route has a low bridge that must be avoided.
