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. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We didn't care for the food at Moose Café at all! Too bad because it is so convenient. We went to Biltmore one day, very easy to get on I40 East to get there. Went to Hendersonville one day, very easy to get to I26 East to get there.

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. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Older campground that could use some updating. Very busy with in and outs - close to multiple highways and the Biltmore Mansion. Paved pad sites. No fire ring. Bath houses are GI showers - not impressed. Has a pool to enjoy. Good cable channels. Wi-Fi was okay. If traveling through, it is a good stop over for a couple of days. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice place to stay if you want to tour Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. Some of the spots are very tight, but others have more space. What you can't see from the campground map is how very steep the area is, so that a campsite that looks like it directly behind you may be a fifty feet higher or lower. You may or may not end up with a nice view, depending upon the slope. The biggest attraction is the proximity to Biltmore, the Farmers Market, the North Carolina Arboretum, and other area sights. If you buy tickets for Biltmore, you get a two-day pass at the price of a one-day pass. So, you can spend one day touring the house and formal gardens and a second day exploring some of the 8,000 acres of the estate. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend to others. (The laundry rooms were very small and could only handle a tiny amount of laundry, so we took ours to a laundromat in town.) We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cecil's Tavern at the Biltmore estate was a great place for lunch.

There are several walking paths we enjoyed at Biltmore as well as bike trails there and along the rivers in downtown Asheville.

Good site for visiting Asheville, but not for camping. Very tight. One neighbor's hookups were under my awning, the other's picnic table was only a few feet outside my bedroom window. WiFi was very weak, could not even open photos on Facebooks at times. The staff was very friendly, but could not reach them by phone when someone locked the ladies restroom early one morning. Restrooms/showers were clean but needed a face lift. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I enjoyed this park, perched on the side of a hill. Sites were paved and basically flat and many were shaded by large trees. It was a bit tricky getting into our site as they had built up a big hump to flatten the site. There is no dog park and little space for walking a dog, unless you walk down a hill into a field near the Interstate, but I have no idea who owns the land. Wifi was very slow. The park is convenient to downtown and Biltmore Village. We enjoyed getting fresh vegetables and homemade ice cream at the farmers market, just across the Interstate. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The location of the park is great for getting to the Biltmore quickly. However, getting to the park is rather challenging. It is nestled up on a very curvy ridge right between two very busy interstates. The pull-through sites were located down the road from the main park but within view of the main park. It was a manageable spot but tight getting into. There wasn't much of an area to walk the dog or even go for a walk without running into very busy traffic. We were only there for a few days and didn't use any amenities such as the laundry room or showers. We also didn't get to visit with the staff but check-in was a breeze. If we were to ever pass through the area again we might visit again. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Getting to the park is difficult if you are a big rig. Twisting road and oncoming traffic make for white knuckles and muddy tires. After check-in you will need to make that crazy drive AGAIN to get to a pull-through site! Once in the site (swing wide and aim true) you are surrounded by highways and interstates, so noise is constant. The good news is that the park is clean and once again, location, location, location! We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our experience here was pretty much as others have described. However, although we had no trouble, others in our group could not get satisfactory TV reception and management was little or no help. Also, some electrical pillars did not work, again with no help from mgmt. We would stay here again mostly because of the location.

Did not make a reservation and we got the last site available! The park is close to I-40 and easy to get to but you do hear the traffic noises. We used the WiFi and found it satisfactory and they had free cable TV. The camp is convenient to the Biltmore Estate and the office gave us detailed instructions for driving there. Someone mentioned tight spaces in another review. They are close to each other but we had no trouble backing in and the pads are concrete.

Campground on top of a hill. No problem pulling our 37' fiver into campground.
Backing in a little tight and would have been a bigger problem if someone was in the site across from us.
Beautiful view from our campsite. The sites were a little tight and was tight on parking my tv in from of RV.
Easy access to interstate and to Asheville.
Would stay here again. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was my first time here and likely my last unless I have no other choice. Sites were very cramped. Cable tv reception bad so we used our antenna. Can't have a campfire. The pull thru sites were about 50 feet from a busy highway. Very noisy during the morning and early evening hours but not bad at night. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tight, hilly, narrow campground roads with nice views of valleys nearby. Fairly level paved site with good water pressure. Pieces of bakelite missing from electrical connection and very loose and low to the ground. Some I-40 road rumble over the hill.
