Apparently no one in the store knew how to charge me for one night, so they let me stay for free. Well, you get what you pay for. Zero wifi, short pull thru sites, no cable though the connections are there. Wooden picnic table came apart in my hands when I moved it. Another RVer told me the laundromat had 1 washer and 4 dryers. Really? Lots of road noise, even inside the RV, made it hard to sleep. Sewer connection was half broken. Site next to mine looked like it had a water pipe break. Only one dumpster and it was on the far side of the park. Will not stay here again.

Nightly rate is based on a week's stay. This is a quiet, rustic, no frills park with back-in sites on a hill that give good views. The host is a real nice guy. Campground is about 10 miles west of Suches and 20 miles east of Morganton. If you have a large coach, Rt 60 can be very nerve racking after a long day of driving. It has a LOT of curves, some of them blind curves. I came in from the east (Suches) and went out toward the west (Morganton). The eastern side is worse; narrower road, no shoulder, and older road surface until you get several miles west of Suches. Good thing 60 is light on traffic during the week. Wifi was adequate for email and Facebook, but no streaming. No antenna tv and no cable. If you need tv, you need to have a satellite. Very good water pressure. If you're a motorcyclist, this is a good place to stay. Great motorcycling blacktop roads and forest service roads for dual sport riders. No fenced dog area, but there is lots of room to walk your dog, just remember to pick up after them. Showers are not too close to RV or tent sites. Wildcat Store/diner was closed during our stay. Nearest Walmart seems to be in Ellijay or Blueridge. My TomTom put me on a forest service road to get back to the park from Murphy, NC, despite me telling it to avoid unpaved roads. GPS' don't know what is paved and what is not and you could end up in the woods.

Stayed 1 night. Nice hosts. Place is about 1/4 mile off I-16. A little road noise if outside your RV. You will likely track sand into your RV. Long pull thru sites and utilities worked well. Fenced dog run is too far from sites to be conveniently used. Interior roads were easy to navigate. Would stay again if in the area.

After reading the reviews, if you come here do NOT be surprised, because they are mostly accurate. Zero frills here. If you are southbound on 95, there is a SHARP left hand turn at the top of the exit ramp to get onto the road for this park. Enter the wide driveway between the office building and the big "Lodge" sign, not the first driveway at the little "RV" sign. RV's leveling system took care of the unlevel site. Water hookup was very low to the ground and on the wrong side, but the pressure was good. Cable at 2 different sites did not work. At least there were a good number of stations pulled in by the antenna. Loop road was gravel and wide, easy to navigate. No fenced dog area. No road noise inside my RV. I don't know why anyone would pay full price to stay here, but for an overnight at the PA rate, it is adequate.

Typical state park. Only 2 antenna channels and no wifi. Very quiet (off season) with spacious back-in sites. Lake was very high with water from Hurricane Matthew. Water and electric hookups worked well. Lots of room to walk the dog, just make sure you pick up after them. Not all dog owners follow the leash rules. Young lady at the gate seemed disinterested in her job. Camp host was friendly. Dump station entry was a little tight for a long 5er.

Real nice curb appeal when you drive up to the place. Some sites are in the trees and others are in the open. Gravel interior roads and gravel sites. Roads are easy to navigate. First site we had was very long and very wide. Second site was a bit shorter. Stayed for 3 nights. Had to move for the 3rd night. Either the office staff misread their reservation system of the person who reserved the site decided not to come, because the site we vacated was never occupied. Utilities worked well. Wifi was iffy with a weak signal. They could use a few more repeaters in the park. No fenced dog run. Small playground. Looks to be a more adult oriented park, which is fine with me.

Called on a Saturday to make a reservation for arrival the next day. Clerk said they were fully booked for the weekend. I said "Even on Sunday?" Clerk realized there were sites coming open on Sunday. Arrived and was escorted to a back in site. All sites have a wooden patio platform. Had to adjust a bit to allow coach's steps to fully fold down. Lots and lots of acorns fell onto the coach throughout our stay. Neighbor site on the curb side was close, neighbor site on the road side was far away. The reverse would have been better. Cable and utilities worked well. Wifi was o.k. for email and Facebook. This place is probably very busy during the summer. Was pretty quiet for our 2 days. Easy access from Rt 13. Easy navigating the loop road with our 58' truck/5er combo. Site was just long enough for coach and truck to fit. To me, it is expensive for what you get, but this seems to be an expensive area.

There are 2 campgrounds; 1 directly off the Pisgah and one down in a hollow across the road. You will not find the one across the road, so call the owner a few minutes before arriving so he can guide you in. In the hollow is down a steep gravel path. No amenities. The full hookups worked well. Wifi was adequate for web surfing and email. Big open field to run the dog, just make sure you pick up after your pets. Very quiet campground. Would stay here again if in the area.

Very friendly office staff. Passport America rate. Spent 1 night just passing thru. Would consider this park for a longer stay. Transient sites are about 65' long. Tree branches need trimmed. Wifi worked well for FB and email. Picked up a couple antenna channels. Water pressure was fine. Roosters crowed a bit early. A fee park cats visited, but were not a nuisance. Exiting may require big rigs to take a tour of the park to get out. Some turns are tighter than others.

Date of Stay:

Concrete pull thru was about 80' long. Easy in and easy out of the site. Roads are a bit narrow, but doable with a big fifth wheel and long bed truck. An HDT might have some issues. Direct TV wired at the site. Water pressure was around 60 psi. Free catch and release fishing. Fenced dog run is about 8' x 100'. It is not located in a convenient place, but it is available. Some residents ignore the 5 mph speed limit. Not a good thing with kids bicycling and skateboarding on the roads. Walmart is within walking distance if it is not hot. Would stay here again.

The park was o.k., but it was very confusing to get a site. No direction signs to point you to an entrance. I should have checked RV Park Reviews before I stopped here, but I didn't. Wouldn't have stayed if I had checked. At least the owners have made some improvements since the previous reviews, but they have a long way to go. No office. Self register at the bath house, but the bath house is at the rear of the park. There is a map at the bath house, but again, it is at the rear of the park. If you drive in with the little red cabin on your right, just pull into an empty site on your left, then fill out the registration form. If you go to the bath house first, you'll have to turn around. Don't hit the big billboard!! Lots of road noise from I-75, so you'll likely stay inside your coach. All sites appear to be full hookups with 2 sewer connections. My site was so unlevel I had to move my coach 3 times to get it leveled. Antenna pulled in a good number of stations. No wifi. No fenced dog area. The park is at the end of a mile and a half long, packed sand road. Several permanent residents with beat up RVs. The teenager and his dad (?) who stopped a few times to see if I needed help were very nice. Might have been owners or employees. Just stopped for a night, but I don't think I would stay here again.

Nice long and wide sites, easy in and out. Roads are packed sand. Zero road noise. No fenced dog area, but enough interior roads to walk. Sites are sandy with grass. Wifi was fine for email and Facebook. Water pressure was adequate. Antenna channels were few. There are a lot of trees so a portable satellite would be good. If fixed, maybe the office can assign you an appropriate site. Lots of seasonal and permanent rigs, some in disrepair. Fishing available on the river bank. Nearest WalMart is about 10 miles away in Crestview. Lots of restaurants there, too. I would stay here again.

PA rate. Pretty much a gravel parking lot, but it was for only 1 night, so not a big deal. Site was about 50' long. Parked my truck in the visitor's parking area. Took some adjusting to get into my pull thru site. There is not a lot of distance between sites and the road is not overly wide, but manageable. Water pressure was good. Wifi was adequate for email and such. No antenna channels came in clear enough to watch. Friendly staff and neighbors. O.k. for an overnight or a few days.

The value wasn't "bad", but I think the place is overpriced for what you get. Unreliable park wifi, meager water pressure, loud trains at night/early in the morning. I thought the water pressure problem was with my coach, but the next park we stayed at had great pressure, so it wasn't my coach. If you have a fifthwheel, you're better off pulling as far into your site as possible and parking behind your coach if there is room, unless you face the center road. To park in front of sites that face the outer road, you are supposed to drive nearly around the entire park to get to the front of your site. They do not want you driving thru an empty site and only the center road is 2-way. The staff is friendly and they pick up your trash if you put it at the front of your site. Cable worked well. They have a nice fenced dog park. Other than the trains, it is a pretty quiet place.

Not sure why people rate this park so high. Differences of opinion I guess. It is a basic campground with back-in sites on the blind side. Yes, it has nice big sites and is quiet. If that is all it takes to rate a campground high, well there you go. Most sites are sloped to the rear. Water pressure was very good. The grass at my site needed cutting. No wifi, weak antenna tv signals. Knowledgeable check-in staff. Lots of deer in the park. Had a skunk come thru my site one evening. Glad I saw him before he saw me. Narrow loop roads and some trees on those loop roads need trimming. Directions on the park's site take you across the dam. Instead of that, it is easier to turn right at the Walmart (N Central St) once you get off the highway, then 1/4 mile past Walmart (keep Walmart on your right) turn left at the first stop sign (Rend Lake Rd). Follow that road about 5 miles to the park entrance. There is one 90 degree turn (Rend Lake Rd becomes Mine 24 Rd) about 1/4 mile after you make the first left. Other than that turn, there are 2 stop signs and VERY little traffic. The camp entrance will be on your right.
