We stopped in for an overnight stay on our way through. We did not use any amenities that may have been available. We chose this park for its reviews and ease of access. We were not disappointed. It was quick and easy with a great site and great hookups. The campground sites on a hill but it was easy to get in and out. The sites were a bit tight and too short to stay hooked. We had to park the truck along the road in front of the camper. Others have complained about the interstate noise, though we could hear the interstate while outside at 6:00 am, it was faint and was not troublesome or disturbing in any way. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it. - BDM

Park was close to Biltmore House and rental car. Reservations mistake put me in a back in instead of pull thru but worked out fine with no problems getting in. - dovetail

This campground is conveniently located to visit Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. It has an odd arrangement of sites but it works. They have a pool but we didn't use it, the free WiFi worked well but was intermittently out of service. The driveways are asphalt and site pads are concrete. We were in a pull through that was somewhat short and narrow (Site 12B). It was near the road and you can hear interstate traffic on the other side but this did not disturb our sleep. The bathrooms were consistently clean. We used their cable service which has an extensive channel selection and worked well. We had a full hookup site with 30amp electric. We paid $40.00 per night. - Coopsecondact

This is a very nice campground very convenient to the Biltmore Estate. Shady & quiet, and dark at night; friendly courteous hosts. Over the air TV extremely limited (One major network), satellite unavailable due to tree cover. WiFi is basically non-existent due to VERY limited cell coverage and no WiFi in the park. Great park for hiking swimming & mountain biking. Occasional children activities provided. - ron4wrga

We stayed here for a week while visiting a friend in nearby Asheville. We had one of the full hookup sites on the Lake Side Loop, and really enjoyed the peace and quiet here. A few other sites were partly visible from our large, deep back-in site, and the foliage provided quite a bit of privacy. The Verizon cell service was very weak in this loop, but our MaxAmp RV booster amplifier gave us a solid voice and data signal inside our motorhome with good speeds. Most sites in this loop have little to no satellite access, but we were on site #38 where we had a clear view of the Dish eastern arc satellites by placing our portable dish near the road. The Dish western arc and DirecTV satellites would have been challenging to receive here. We didn't try to receive the OTA stations since we had them on satellite. The utilities are well placed, and our site was paved with blacktop for the driving lane, with small gravel in the picnic table and fire ring area. The campground hosts tour the loop regularly, and the sites are checked and cleaned when a guest departs. The private bathrooms and showers are checked and cleaned regularly as well. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay here, and would very much like to return the next time we're in the area. - NYDutch

We got lucky here and got a full hookup site long enough for our rig, deep in the trees in a beautiful spot. The volunteers and hosts are helpful and friendly. Lots are spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring. - ELewis28

Management & staff excellent- friendly and helpful. Clubhouse spacious and clean. Pool available in season. Laundry on site is more reasonable than Laundromat Wooded sites. We were not able to connect to Satellite. No Wi-Fi or cable available. Sites are not level or large but staff will assist in whatever it takes to level and facilitate settling into site. Convenient to Asheville and Western NC attractions. Showers could use more cleaning attention. This is our 3rd year to stay a month at this park. Despite any shortcomings we will return again next year. - M&MLuna

This is a small park with mostly permanent/semi-permanent sites. If your looking for a pool and other amenities, it's not here. Good for a 1 or 2 night layover. The owner is a one man show and tries to keep the place up but it shows wear. The park is for sale. There is a railroad track about 300 yards away, but no whistles. It's a little tight getting onto the site with adequate room between rigs. If you have a toad, you probably can't park it adjacent to your trailer/motorhome. Power is mid-site but reachable from the rear of the coach. - 2sunkid

Closest park to town and its attractions. The owner is friendly, helpful and attentive to the guests and works very hard maintaining this older property. We had an outage on our power pole during our stay, and he had an electrician out to repair it promptly. Sites are a bit tight, but perfectly adequate for our big rig. - ELewis28

Gravel roads, tight turns. Bathrooms were not clean. The park is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance and convenient to the Biltmore Estate. - PLitzel

This is a lovely campground on top of a hill with an incredible view! Some of the sites have a direct view of the scenic valley. Others sites are more wooded, but there is a place where everyone can go to view the killer sunsets! Campground was very nice. We will definitely visit again! - TN Vogels

The road to this park is one lane winding rough and not easy in a car or with a big rig motor home! 5 sites have a beautiful view, but the others only view trees so you miss the view of the other mountains and the valley. I WOULD NOT advise this for big rigs. Our tow stuck out and we parked as closely as we could. Most other vechicles were obstructing traffic. - Jimjul

Beautiful rv park that offers stunning views and in close proximity of all that Asheville offers. This relatively small campground classifies its sites as either premium or deluxe. The deluxe sites offer shaded sites with filtered views of the French broad River valley and distant mountains. The premium sites have tremendous, unobstructed views of the river and mountains but are not very shaded. Both types are full hookup. The gravel road up to the campground is a little narrow and a little steep in spots but I had no issue pulling our 31 foot travel trailer up or down. The sites are all fairly level and have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground also has some decent trails to explore. - Denver James

We have stayed at this park several times over the last few years. It's been about the same all along and not much has changed. The owner can seem gruff, but is really a nice fellow. As others have noted, the setting and proximity to Asheville are the draws here. We absolutely love access to the parks and trails that run right through the park. A few years ago, there used to be shade trees on the highway side sites, but the local utility came in and removed them because they were encroaching on the power lines. A real shame. Anyways, about getting into the park. The trick is to U-turn at the office/repair shop. I've seen people U-turn at the park, but it's a little more tricky. Alternatively, you can exit I-26 at Haywood Rd, then follow Hanover to State St, then to Short Michigan Ave (hilly but no clearance problems) to Amboy Rd. - Phil Hyde

This is a compact linear RV park, on the French Broad River, with sites on both sides of a central recreation path and road. An interstate highway is immediately above the campground with much traffic. For a 2 night stay, this campground worked well for me. While sites were very close together, each one was back-in on a concrete pad and most had full hookups. The rate shown was for Passport America, available most days. There was little shade. The advice to check in at the RV repair shop didn't work as it was closed up and we checked in with the helpful person at the campground. There was a cable connection that we didn't use. There were no picnic tables or fire rings at sites. We saw a wi-fi signal but didn't learn if it was for customers. The campground is 5 miles from downtown Asheville. A popular recreation path/trail runs through the middle of the park. If in the area again, we'd likely stay here. - Jay Rutherford

Interesting CG on the French Broad River. First off, there is no cable, so don't go by their website. The WiFi is mostly slow. Was able to use theirs on occasion, but mostly used my own. It is located right next to I-240, so there is road noise outside, but never heard noise while inside the RV. There is a sharp, hairpin turn to enter the CG at the bottom of the exit ramp that is impossible to make in an RV. We drove a short distance down to a city park and unhooked the toad in order to turn around. The signs are a bit confusing. The check-in office is located at their RV repair business a few doors away, so stop there before going into the CG. We did not do that. There is a very helpful and friendly host on site who took care of us, but I had to walk back to the office to pay as she only deals with cash. We enjoyed our stay here, so I didn't mean for all of the above to sound so negative, just wanted to give some helpful facts. The CG was clean and in a good location. Our site was on the river and had plenty of room between the sites. The FHU site was on a concrete slab and was level. What's interesting is that there is a city-run walking/bike path that runs right down the center of the CG. It continues along the river past the CG one direction and continues to the city-run park the other direction. Plenty of space to walk the dog. Lots of activity walking/riding by the MH which I thought was fun to watch. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

This is our second visit to the campground. We were here also in late May. While the CG looks a little run down, all the utilities worked and the French Broad has a nice tranquil sound. The sites have a concrete pad and patio and are level. If you approach from Montecello Drive, you will have to travel about a mile farther to the used car lot to do a 180. Then you'll be lined up to enter the campground. The camping area is small with little turn around space. Big rigs would have a difficult time maneuvering. WiFi worked for the first half of the week and then stopped. AT&T was good, no satellite because of the trees. we were here for five days. - Nautilus

Well this is a tough review to do. Without a doubt, the one thing that makes this park special is the **spectacular** location along the expansive, beautiful French Broad River. The sound of the river was so peaceful and there were ducks and geese with their ducklings there. We'd wake up each morning and see the sun sparkling off the water with the uncomparable sounds of the river running over the rocks.
**However**, then you turn around and see the rest. The sites are very close together. The cabins are tired looking. We were happy to find that for two consecutive nights we had two different cool Millennial couples next to us. (I'm an X'er and we seem to only run into Boomers at the parks. Love the Boomers but nice to see some younger folks camping out!). Hung out with each couple in our shared inter-site space with fires going, relaxing, enjoying the local craft beers, good conversation.
There were some questionable looking people hanging around but turned out to be nice. I didn't use the bathrooms but heard they were run down and not very clean, so I stuck to just using our RV bathroom instead.
We found Bill (one of the owners) helpful. He assisted us with backing in and encouraged us to come find him if we needed anything. He also strictly enforced the rules (no parking on the grass, keeping all the items restricted to your own camping space, etc.). But I liked the rule enforcement, made me feel safe.
The place would greatly benefit from a makeover. It has a commune feel to it. - GearDown

We stayed at FBRC for 2 nights, us and a couple friends. We wanted somewhere close to Asheville and it was close enough. The campground was OK, the bath house needed some cleaning but heck you are in a campground, you can't expect the Ritz. Hearing the train didn't bother any of us, its really not that bad.We loved being on the river, very lovely. If we need to camp near Asheville again we may just return. - Meg Hollaway

Nightly rate based on their weekly rate of $300. I don't give 10 ratings out very often! This is an awesome place. Built into the side of a mountain, the roads are very steep and the sites are terraced in places. (Not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but large motor homes and fifth wheels made it with no problems.) The people who run it are friendly and helpful with advice on nearby Asheville, a great town to visit. The sites are cleaned up after each visitor leaves, and the whole park is immaculately clean. Their cable tv worked great, giving us lots of stations very clearly. Their web site was fine. Our Verizon signal was hit and miss. The cabins are placed away from the RVs in pretty sites next to a little mountain stream, by the way. We will definitely be back! - dbcordello

We stayed at the top to enjoy the view. The view is truly exceptional and worth the road up and the extra expense. The top is a broad shelf carved into the side of the hill and its entirety is level. There is no shade but the grounds are well landscaped. The bathhouse is new and spotless. There is a small area for a dog walk with dog waste containers.
The entire CG was well maintained and very clean. The roads are paved and they are all fairly steep, although the sites not on top were all fairly level with plenty of shade. Just pay attention, and the roads are quite manageable. Other than that, the other reviewers covered most everything well.
We will definitely stay here again. - SchnoodleCamp

This park is amazing. The sites are immaculate, the shower and laundry facilities well supplied and clean, wifi works well and consistently, the water pressure is good and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We stayed in one of the mountain top views with a deck that included a wooden swing, picnic table and grill. The deck was built into the side of the hill so the back of it was literally 20 feet off the ground. The view was amazing and totally worth the effort it took to get to the top site.
The mountain sites are hard to reach, but the staff members are expert at escorting you up the hill. They even convinced us not to unhook our tow knowing exactly how much space we would need to make the turns up the hill.
I strongly recommend this RV park if you are looking for that special place to enjoy the glorious mountains near Asheville. You will not be disappointed! - PBW

The campground is closed. I talked to the owners today, and they said that it is unknown at this time if and when the campground will reopen under new ownership. I hope it does, as this was our favorite campground in the Asheville area. - JavanMichael

What a deal! A little close together for the drive throughs, but you get 50 AMPS, sewage, water, TV and Wi-Fi. Nice grassy area surrounded by trees just off the interstate. There is a couple of trains that run a couple times at night, but the two other local CGs have the same problem. Some would consider the train nostalgic and not be bothered. A very nice RV store with all the things you may need. This is a trailer sales and service dealership with a mechanic on site. We stay here every time we come to Asheville. - reccarey

This park is right off I-40 and very convenient to Asheville, Black Mountain and many other beautiful locations in the area. It is not an RV resort by any means. It is an older campground with level, full hookup sites. You will not find a lot of amenities here. If you need a pool, entertainment, etc, this is not the place for you. If you want an inexpensive, easy to get to place to park your rig while you see the awesome sites around, it will do nicely. We left each morning early: by 9 a.m., and did not return until 7 or 8. Folks are very nice and have a nice supply of RV supplies. Other necessities can be found within minutes of the area. - twins89

camped in a 44 foot MH. Called to make reservation and made a point to be sure they had big enough site. Got there and taken to the site, and could not get into it. Moved to another site, and it took a while but we got in. This is not a big rig friendly park unless you have one of a few sites.
Had FHU that worked fine, level site. Interior roads average, big speed bumps. Go slow. We will not camp here again. - Banker bill

We were happy pulling into the facility. Its located by a large pond with ducks. Having said that, we had to maneuver large potholes around the site. Internet was dismal and cable was just as bad. The restrooms were spotless and the laundry was always clean. The location is great but if you need to use the internet, don't stay here. - Tlcola2004

We stayed here for three months (June-Labor Day 2016). Nice little park. The sites are gravel, varying in size, and we had a nice shaded site for our stay. Toad parking can be a challenge, but wouldn't keep me from staying here again. For the kids there is a nice pool, fishing pond, paddle boats and play area. Restrooms clean and well-kept. Laundry room could use a little work. Well maintained park - I believe they even have 100amp service in the newer area. Very close to restaurants, Walmart, shopping -- Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Slide Rock -- all within an hours drive. We even found ATV trails (few and far between in western North Carolina). All in all, a nice place to stay for a vacation. - HeidiR
