This was our first visit to this RV park, and our impressions were generally better than many of the past reviews we had read. We had a very long, level, concrete back-in site which was plenty spacious for our 43' fifth wheel plus our truck. Yes, the paved park access roads are a little hilly, but we had no problem maneuvering into our back in site. The staff was friendly, the grounds were nicely maintained, the hookups were good, there was a nice (albeit small) swimming pool, and the WiFi was pretty good (by RV park standards). Full recycling was available on site. The stinkbugs were a detraction, but that wasn't the fault of the RV park. The RV park was a little pricey (even with our military discount), but we would still likely stay here again if we were in the area. - Byron Bailey

Very difficult to find anyone in the office and always had to leave a message to be called back. A bit tricky pulling into the campgrounds and assigned site. Take exit 47 off I-40 no matter what your GPS says. - g peter

Park is excellent location for Asheville activities. Cable didn't work, however several channels were strong and clear with the antennae. Spaces are very small, but each has grassy area and picnic table. Park roads are one way and plenty wide until the park fills up and there are cars parked on each side. Interstate traffic noise did not bother us, it is like a constant hum in the background. Everything is paved so there is no dust. Would go back because of it's location. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. - Mullie09

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

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

If you don't need a swimming pool or children's playground, Taps is our kind of place. Small friendly park, within walking distance or a very short drive of restaurants, grocery stores, and just about any business you can name. The Blue Ridge Parkway, the Biltmore Estate, Pisca Forest, downtown Asheville and many attractions are close. Cherokee NC is a 45 minute drive.
The host is a very concerned and friendly. There are only two bathrooms and they are private unisex, cleaned every morning. The sites and may be a bit tight but there is plenty of room for the slides and we have never stayed in a park where they are more level. Just drop your pads put out your slides and camp. We drive a 34' motor home but we were parked next to a 50' unit who had no problem getting in or out. We had to have packages delivered and the host brought them right to our door.
We have stayed in a number of parks in and around the area. We tried Maggie Valley because it is higher up but Taps is worth the extra drive.
Happy Trails. - Jim 2

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

This park is absolutely gorgeous! It is quiet and peaceful. The sites are huge and far apart. They are slanted in such a way that they give you maximum privacy. The premium sites have a gorgeous view of the valley and mountains. And, if you have a regular site in the trees, they have a nice viewing area with benches where you can relax and watch the sun set. The bathrooms were individual bathrooms with a toilet and shower in each. The tent sites were secluded and in the trees. There are not a lot of kids screaming and running around like at a KOA because there is not a lot of kid things to do but this makes it perfect for people like my husband and I who want the peace and quiet to enjoy nature. The only problem with this campground is that it is up a mountain and maneuvering a big rig can be difficult at times. There is about a 1/2 mile curvy, bumpy, narrow, gravel road leading into the campground and backing into a few of the sites was pretty tight. If you have a big rig (especially a fifth wheel), I would avoid spots P8 and D9-13. We had site P8 and, although it was (in my opinion) the best site in the park, parking was extremely difficult due to the narrow road with a drop off on the far side. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of big rigs up there. Just be aware that that maneuvering can be tight. This is not the place to be if you are not confident of you RV driving skills. Other than the roads, this park is my ideal RV park and I highly recommend it. - AgilityCardiMom

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.

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

This park was adequate. We were disappointed when first arriving due to unkempt and aging status. We did enjoy cooling off with a drink in our chairs in middle of river. Could be much nicer if utilities and sites updated. Manager/owner ? Friendly. - pwdorris

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

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

Easy access in and out for big rig. Very friendly and helpful staff. Park very clean. Stayed in site 76 which was very large with picnic shelter in back. Plenty of room for 40ft MH. Good water pressure. Adequate cable and on and off Wi-Fi. Water, sewer, and electric hookups were good. Good location to visit Ashville and surrounding areas. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby. Nice lake in park with recreation options. - kwilliam

Clean park from what we could see, but small and with many very close spaces. Only a few suitable for a class A motorhome, and even then the way into the site and the way out is very, very tight due to other vehicles being parked on or partially on the road. The electricity in site 46 is abominable. We paid for 50 amp service, but our Energy Management System said that one leg was only 106 volts, and kept shutting the coach down. This played hob with the A/C units, and wiped out the main circuit board in the onboard washing machine! We finally switched to 30 amp, and limped along, turning appliances on or off so as not to trip the breaker. We talked to a gentleman who comes here every summer to escape Florida, and he said that he had the same issue with power last year in this site. Management is adding new sites but not maintaining the sites already in service. Poor way to run a business! We will never return!
P.S. Wifi was advertised but non-existent. Never did find it, even at the office. - CalPop45
