This cg has just as good a view as everyone says! Beautiful!!! We didn't stay in one of the view sites (too expensive for a multiple night stay...), but we ended up in the farthest away site so ended up with a bit more space, privacy, and forest feel. We made use of the communal view area - everyone's there for sunsets. No satellite reception for most (all?) sites - too many trees! And couldn't get PBS on their cable or on air channels! So missed the finale to my series... Oh well, it was worth it! And as for the driveway - don't be freaked out by some of the other reviewers! It's really not that bad! Just follow their rule of not showing up before 2:30pm to check in (I also called right before we drove up, and we unhooked in a little pull-out area just before cg entrance on other side of road). Nice trails to hike around cg. Would be awesome to stay there in the fall!! We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Was more impressed by the Biltmore than I expected to be - it was worth the price! Reserve a full day for it though (or at least several hours)! And of course the Blue Ridge Parkway is gorgeous!! We also enjoyed the Western North Carolina Nature Center.

This is an absolutely beautiful little gem of a park. It is situated right on the ridge of a mountain and most of the 15 RV sites sit right on the ridge overlooking the French Broad River and valley. The sites are large - some are gravel and some are cement. All are relatively level with full water, electric, sewer, cable TV and WiFi. The sites are surrounded by tall trees and there are hiking paths all over the mountain. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The bath house provides individual bathrooms with showers. The laundry room is small - 3 washers and driers but they work wonderfully. In the last 6 months this is the first park laundry room where I have only needed on cycle on the drier - even for towels. Both bathrooms and laundry room were very clean. We cannot wait to return to this park. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Biltmore Estate - you'll need a full day to see it all. Vortex Donuts for out of this world coffee and donuts. French Broad chocolate factory. lunch at Corner Kitchen and Well-Bred Bakery and Cafe. Amazing desserts too.

The park is located on a high hill at the end of a narrow gravel road, all back-in sites. The turnaround area is small for a 40 ft motorhome, required to back up in order to make the turn. Limited area to hook up tow vehicle; we did at the bottom of the hill. The utilities at our site where deficient, leaky faucet, sewer line ran uphill, etc. We would not return in a large unit. The premium sites have a great view of the valley below, we were not in a premium site. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of activities in Asheville. Biltmore house, city tours, shops, craft center on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Fabulous 170 degree view-from premium sites, it is well worth it. Very friendly owner, wonderful location, clean individual restrooms very private, nice hiking paths, great common viewing area for nightly sunset over the mountains. We go several times a year, great place to relax and enjoy the view. All premium sites are concrete pads with landscaping. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About 15 minutes from the Biltmore Estate, which is worth the visit and the Blue Ridge Parkway for a scenic drive

Stunning views from preferred sites. I recommend P-8. We had a non-view site but it was level and plenty of room. Had a wild turkey family greeting us in the mornings. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The road up to the park is a little dicey but made it in a 40' plus tow. If you are looking for a peaceful mountain experience, this is where you want to be. Very close to Asheville but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Gorgeous views from the mountain looking down on the valley below; good Wi-Fi; well-managed. At first I was concerned that I couldn't do much walking or bicycle riding in this park, but fortunately both are not too terribly far away. There is a great walking path at Beaver Lake about a 6 minute drive away; park in the lot on Merrimon Avenue at the bird sanctuary. Bike trails are a bit further away at Bent Creek. We would love to stay here again if we return to the area. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent park in every respect: beautiful views, level sties, immaculate grounds, strong Wi-Fi, and friendly staff (especially Jason). Mountain views include the French Broad River and a distant model airplane airport where you can watch the planes maneuver (but too far away for noise). There is even a freight train in the distance adding to the evening ambiance. Bathrooms are clean, but not air conditioned. Nice laundry room with two coin operated washers and dryers ($1.50 each). Premium sites 1-7 have beautiful sunset views, but are in the sun all day. We were in premium site 8 that had both views and shade. Drive up the hill is tight but not difficult. Take your awnings down if leaving for the day as high winds during an afternoon thunderstorm damaged out neighbor's awning. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

The park was beautiful! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hiking trails accessible from the park were a great way to exercise my dog and myself! The spaces were well set up and were larger than most other campgrounds. Without reservations, we were only able to stay 2 days--they were that full. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

The campground was a little difficult to find. My first impression was not very good. The driveway is dirt/gravel, very steep and lots of curves. Upon arriving at the office we were greeted and made to feel right at home. The staff was terrific. Jason the maintenance person was phenomenal. The staff is truly glad to have you at their campground and aren't shy about it. We had to cut our stay short, but we will definitely be back. It's close to down town but far enough away to make you feel secluded. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

The draw of this park is first and foremost the mountain views and wooded setting. I agree with the other reviews about park condition, surroundings, facilities, etc. It's very small and fills up. Even though this park accommodates big rigs, and we didn't have any problems, it's tight and there is not a lot of room for error. The person who performs park maintenance and security, is the biggest asset (staff wise) to this park IMO. He was extremely helpful in helping us navigate in and out, and did everything he could to make us feel at home. The lady in the office was friendly and helpful to us, but I witnessed her become very impatient with someone on the phone (asking questions about site size and accommodating a 40' RV). This park can accommodate large rigs, just prepare for some maneuvering. Strong Verizon and AT&T signals. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground was immaculate. Staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The views from this campground exceeded any I have experienced. The Wi-Fi was outstanding. It is a little piece of paradise. The campground is a long way from our home (about 3000 miles) so I won't likely return but I will never forget the experience! We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

We were in one of the premium view sites, a paved concrete site with nice landscaping and view. The road up the campground can be easy to miss, make wide turns, and do it very slowly and carefully! The gravel road up is very, very steep but doable by all. The last curve up to the campground is the steepest, do not stop, keep on going for momentum! Recommend doing Google satellite view for an idea of what to watch out for. Watch out for the turns, benches, and rocks along the roads within the camp; easy to hit! No online reservation, and big deposit with a strict cancellation policy is archaic, but maybe it is because they do not have many sites. Very close to Biltmore and Asheville. Grocery store very close too. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

This park is special, it sits high on a hillside, and although close to urban facilities feels like it is deep in the NC forests. The location offers stunning views. The owner has not only provided a number of premium sites with views, but has created a space and seating area to allow all the other campers on property the opportunity to enjoy the view too. The onsite managers are extremely helpful and friendly, the park itself is kept in pristine condition. Premium sites are concrete, deluxe sites are gravel, all sites are back-in but plenty long for your average big rig (we are 40ft). Some sites are better than others if larger than 40ft. Major area attractions are easily accessed and groceries are conveniently located within 1 - 2 miles. The negatives: the road up to the park is steep, narrow and gravel, but easily passable if traffic one-way. For rigs coming and going, this is mostly accomplished by strict check-out / check-in times. The requirements for a big deposit with a strict cancellation policy is archaic, and the stink bugs in September are insane! But this is NC in the fall. We have checked out other parks in the area and none compare to this little gem on the hillside. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Beware, be very aware! STINKBUGS EVERYWHERE. NO RV IS SAFE. We had them for the best part of a week. In every room! We left for Cherokee, ended up killing over 70 more after we arrived and let out our slides. P.S. WI-FI was poor also. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.
