I called and emailed to make a reservation, with no response to either. Finally, when it was time to park the RV, we decided just to see if there were any available spots. Office was empty, prior to 6:00pm, but there was an after hours board, so I went ahead and completed the form (and was honest about an extra person, so paid an extra $3 for the night). The spot was a pull through, but very tight, very close. Only one picnic table for every two spots (and ours was damaged). RIGHT on a busy road, headlights and traffic all night. In the morning, we left as early as we could since a car broke down during the night and was parked in front of us and our neighbor. At least we could back out of our pull through spot. Not sure what the neighbor did, as theirs was a back in spot. Pool was not clean. Didn't allow kids to swim even after walking up there. Needs attention... For the price we paid, we would have done better to stay a little further away. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Spots pretty tight, but location to local attractions more than makes up for it. Once backed in, site was more than adequate. Friendly staff. Great stay. Thank you. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

In addition to our stay, we must advise all who read this, of an outstanding company we used while at the campgrounds. "It's all in the Finish" is an RV detailing company. The husband and wife team worked diligently, over a period of 2 days and did an extraordinary job washing and waxing (Teflon) our 9 year old motorhome. We couldn't have been happier with the results. Worth every penny.

It depends what you are looking for as to how you will view this campground. It is on a narrow twisty road. If you have pull thru you would register and leave the camp to drive around again to get to your site. Pull thrus back up to the highway behind your rig and the main road in front of your rig. Back ins are on a narrow road up the hill once you have registered. This is not a problem if the campground is not full and everyone has not parked on the road. Most have to park cars/trucks across front of site. Some sites back in going up small hill. You can see marks in pavement where vehicles/trailers have bottomed out at the hitch. Did not use bathrooms, showers, or laundry. The location is great. Close to Biltmore, Bent Creek for mountain bikers, and close to Brevard, about 20 minute drive. May not be the best RV park but would return due to location. Once you get situated it is all good! Some sites have BIG holes in asphalt in where levelers have sunk in due to asphalt being so soft during summer months. Appears they have not tried to fill the holes. Over time this will be very problematic. As a result you have to be careful where you place your rig on the site. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived after 5 pm so office was closed. Park was very crowded and sites were carved out of every available flat area, as well as private residences and apartments. Our pull-through site was only a few feet from a busy road. Site was narrow and difficult to park due to tree and utility post. Decided that we could not put out slides so took an empty 30 amp spot that was wide enough for our slides. Restrooms were smallest that I have seen outside of a B motorhome: needed to keep elbow in when using stall or sink. Just not a comfortable situation. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We hadn't stopped here in several years, and it looks like no upgrades have taken place. After maneuvering winding road, you must turn into the campground on a sharp curve, then up a hill in front of office. Sites are all back-in up on the hill with uneven pads to get up on. All hookups are at the back. You must back up as far as you can, anyway, to get your tow off the narrow road. Clubhouse looks ancient, with old chairs in need of replacement or paint. Very little maintenance anywhere. No place to walk the dog, but we found a dog park two miles away. WiFi is good and location of park is good.

Very close to your neighbors. Concrete pads. Barely room to park your vehicle. There's a picnic table but didn't use it because I felt I was eating next to my neighbors bedroom. We backed up to a beautiful view. Close to town. There's deluxe sites that are wider cost more. Office staff OK. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I can't say much about this CG's amenities, as we arrived late and left early, but I will say that you should DEFINITELY arrive during the daylight. The roads to the CG are very tight and twisty, as are the roads in the CG. Also, the lighting and signage is not very good at directing you where you need to go. It didn't help that it was dumping rain on us. We were also both fighting severe head colds. It was a bad night.

The layout of this park is very strange. You have to drive up a steep incline to get the office. The road is barely wide enough for your RV, and if you don't have a back-in site up there, you have to exit the park, swing back around, and then go past the entrance to get to the pull-throughs. There was a sign for the pull-throughs, but no light guiding us into the drive way, and the road is a curvy disaster waiting to happen. It would definitely be easier in the daylight and without rain, but it's still tight.

The park was nearly full, there are apartments on-site, and we witnessed two trailers stuffed into one pull-though next to us. Also, the back-in sites were very close together. Since we were literally under-the-weather, we asked for a late check-out time and were denied the request. We won't be back. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Entrance to park rather confusing, site is pavement, level, full hook ups, pull through sites are right on the road in a curve so headlights shine in windows all night, freeway noise as it runs on two sides of campground. Price is very high for what you get. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Worst RV park, private or chain we have ever stayed at! Bathrooms are deplorable, the pull-through site is so tight it is a chore to get into the site, internet is close to unusable, employee at the desk is not sociable or helpful, the park is old, crowed and unkempt. Site was within feet of a major highway with no barrier. I would not stay there again if it were free! We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

First, the good. Location is good. Convenient to Biltmore and downtown. Now, the bad. Very unfriendly front desk staff. Not at all helpful. Pull thru sites are tight with a lot, and I mean a lot, of road noise. Insufficient number of washers and dryers and the dryer I used took two cycles to dry one set of queen sheets. Large tree at our site had branches that scraped our roof. Neighboring site's pedestal was 2 feet from our front door. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Positive points - very convenient to I-40 and Asheville, and a level site with decent cable . That being said, we had to back UPHILL over a ledge (almost grounded the rig) to squeeze into a tiny site, backing into a dirt hill. Entire campground is on winding, very narrow roads, and there are trees on the sites that will scratch roof and sides of RVs. Rude clerk at check-in was rushing to pick up her child from daycare and told me to count sites to find ours - just waved in the general direction and handed me a map. Since we had requested a pull-through, we weren't happy to find out we didn't have one...had reserved over a month in advance. The sites are so tiny that we had to ask 2 neighbors to move their tow cars so we could pull out. (They arrived after we did). There isn't enough room for cars at the sites, so they were parked blocking us in. ( very kindly agreed to drive away so we could get out of our site). We think this is pretty outrageous. I took our trash to the fenced area, and was surprised to see trash bags outside the fence...until I got there and saw there were no barrels! Disgusting. I believe in never saying never...but have no plans to return here, nor do I recommend it. Better "camping" at Walmart! We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This place is horrible. Sites are obscenely close to one another. Pad was concrete but crumbling. You look behind us (back-in site) and there's a huge hill/drop off. The road within the park is very narrow, full of pot holes and twisty and hilly. People arriving in a large 5th wheel across from us were forced to knock on our door and wake us up at 10pm (they were arriving late) to ask us to move our truck so they could maneuver into their space. Bathrooms were old and cramped. Ridiculous. Never again... We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rude clerk at check-in. Packed in like sardines at many sites. Very little room for tow vehicle. Very tight. However, we had a nice view of the mountains if we got out of and walked to the back of the rv. The grass was thin and in many areas more mud than grass. The white plastic picnic table was covered in black spots (mildew?) Restrooms should have been updated 10 years ago. The park is all asphalt - no gravel, so that is nice. Easy to navigate inside park, but if anyone is trying to back in, they hold up traffic. Overall not bad - expect better for the price. Would stay here again.

First, the positive points. This campground is very easy to find (right off the interstate) and super close to downtown, dining, and shopping (outlet mall just a few miles away). At $42 a night, it may be bit higher than state parks or other campgrounds, but if you are looking for convenience to the downtown area, it really isn't that bad of a price. Now, the negative points. This campground is SUPER TIGHT. If there is a free space, they'll park a camper in it. Or a tent. Anything, really. We were lucky because the travel trailers next to us seem to be empty and neither of them had slide-outs, otherwise it would have been a lot more cramped than it already was and I'm not sure that we could have even used our awning. As mentioned before, the campground is located very close to the interstate. While that does make for easy and convenient travel downtown, it's very, very loud. Luckily (again), that noise does quiet down a bit at night due to less cars on the road, but there is no peace and quiet all during the day as traffic noise drowns out most everything else. Our last night there was spent debating on which was worse... the traffic noise or the barking dogs. Sadly, our view was of the line of trucks from the exterminating company located next to the campground. That was a huge annoyance. Our original designated spot was supposedly occupied by campers refusing to leave, so we were assigned a space near the exit of the campground. They could easily make that view better by adding a privacy fence so that the company's parking lot would not be visible. Still not sure why they haven't bothered to do this. Also, no picnic table available. All in all, while there were annoyances, the park was very convenient and that is what we were mainly looking for this trip. The park itself is very clean and they have trash cans and recycling cans conveniently located - but nicely hidden - in several areas throughout the park. Sites are level.
