This is a quiet family owned campground that is very convenient to the VA hospital, downtown Asheville, Biltmore Estate and Blue Ridge Parkway. It is most suited for those traveling without small children as there are no kid friendly facilities like a pool or playground. Laundry facilities are not available but a nice laundry is close by. WiFi and cable TV included in the price. Two individual restrooms are not deep cleaned and sanitized daily. Campground is great value for the price. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Biltmore Estates and Blue Ridge Parkway. Many different day trip options to surrounding Western North Carolina areas. Several dining options within walking distance.

This was the only park with sites available on a holiday weekend. It is Very Tight in here. The manager helped us back into our site after we had difficulty; it took a good 20 minutes to back in. WiFi was not very good. Water pressure was not very good. The manager was very nice, and the place is clean. I would rate it higher if it were easier to get around. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very tight park to get at 40' RV in. It was not a park I would ever go back too again. Nothing nice to look at if desperate for an over nighter, it's fair. We had booked 3 days without seeing it and was not happy at this park, sorry no refunds, so we stayed 3 days. Will not go back to this one at all after seeing it. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

On the east side of town, close to I-40 and convenient to Blue Ridge Pkwy, Biltmore etc. Park is old, roads narrow considering that vehicles have to be parked on the road. Back in sites narrow and not real easy to get into, trying to avoid other parked cars and rigs. The cable TV is a new thing where you are issued a small box, cable and remote control. You have to connect this box in line with the input cable to your TV. The TV remote turns your set on and off and controls sound and the extra remote changes channels. It took trying three boxes before we got one that worked. One neighbor never did get one to work (after three tries, then the office was closed). When it worked, the audio was so weak that with the TV turned up to 100% on the sound, you couldn't hear it if you had a fan, A/C or furnace running. I think I'd look for a park somewhere else and drive into town to visit the sites here. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The only thing that keeps me from giving this park a 1 rating is that the owner was pleasant. The park is extremely small, sites are tight and not suited for Big Rigs -- though a skilled driver can pull it off. The restrooms were filthy -- no other way to put it. Mold, mildew, and just plain dirty. Less than 75 yards from train tracks with freight trains running all night. Our concrete site pad was heaved and broken which made getting level a challenge. Picnic table had a 18" hole burned in the top of it so it was unusable. WiFi signal was too weak to even upload a simple email. Good Sam rating of 6/9.5*/9 is way way way off track. Avoid this place at all costs. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park Is marginal at best, but is very convenient to the Biltmore estate and restaurants. Owner is trying to sell the park and it seems he does not really care about his customers or the park. Restrooms had mud all over the floors, and did not appear very clean. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week at a cost of $219 for a pull-thru with full hook-up. All we wanted was a "base" to operate out of to see the sights of Asheville. For that, it served us well as very close to everything. However, there are many drawbacks to this place. First off, very small and narrow roads within the campground itself. Lucky for us we were on the end and it was easy for us to get into our pull-thru site. With a 40' it would be hairy trying to back into any site. Campground not well maintained and there are several seasonal junky sites. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

I think big-rig access was an error in previous reviews. The campground website says "large, level pull-throughs" and "can accomodate the largest made RV's." Neither of these is true. We were in a large coach with slides on both sides towing a car. I told the owner this when I made the reservation. When we got in at 4pm, the office was closed. A note on the door left instructions for me to unhook my toad right there in the entryway and proceed to my site. Without the car, the coach can pull through the very small site. This is NOT my definition of a pull-through! As for large sites that can accomodate the largest made RV, our site is barely long enough for the 40 foot coach. We were instructed to park the dinghy crossways in the front; about half of it is out in the road. This is common at many sites making the road difficult to navigate. Finally, this "large" site is so narrow that I can't open the basements on one side. Our slide is less than 3 inches from the power post and the water faucet. The park is very small and tight maneuvering. We had to get our "neighbor" to move their truck to get out of the site; glad they were up! There are 2 (separate) rooms with a shower and toilet. They were fairly clean. There is one washer/dryer in one of the bathrooms. No other facilities here. Like other reviewers, we chose Taps for the location. I think Good Sam's rating of 6/9.5/9 is pretty far off track. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, but Verizon worked fine. Biltmore was a blast! We may come back to Asheville, but we would never stay here again. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

We selected this park based on how close it was to The Cove (Billy Graham training Center). We also visited the Biltmore Estate. Very basic, no frills gravel sites and interior roads. Short road into park has many deep potholes so drive very slow. Grass at each site and most are separated by short wooden fence. Combination of pull through and back in sites with FHU. We would stay here again. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Two positive things to say - very nice owner and close to Parkway and downtown. However, loud - street noise and train - day and night - yes, there is a whistle. Park is very tight for large rig and lots of long-termers. We would not stay here again. Incidentally, the park is for sale. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tight park for driving but nice space between units. Big rigs would have a harder time getting in and out; our 36-foot was about all I'd want. Laundry facilities limited. Concrete patio and concrete runners for tires. Grass around the coach but NO parking on the grass. Near freeway and the railroad. Don't hear traffic from freeway other than as white noise. Train noise is present a couple times a night but is short duration and we never heard a whistle. So-so water pressure but good sanitary system for dumping. Convenient to parkway and Biltmore. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Location, location, location. This RV park is not fancy but can fit your need for touring around Asheville. The location is great. It is right by the Blue Ridge Parkway, close to downtown Asheville, and close to the Biltmore. The sites are a bit tight since it is an older park, but there are a number of large motorhomes which fit in. There are a few full-timers, but most people seem to be travelers like us, so it did not bother us. There is a train nearby, but it did not bother us. We would stay here again.

Location is great, just off the I-40 on a road with a grocery and a couple of restaurants and a great local bar, The Roots Bar, a few yards up the road. Also had a bus stop just outside which took you into downtown Asheville and ran every hour, hugely convenient and what is so often lacking in other city sights which are often too far out. Pretty little wooded site with a nice garden and immaculate bathrooms. Wi-Fi excellent and the owner was most helpful. Asheville is also well worth a visit particularly on a Saturday night through to the end of August when they have a free festival called Shindig on the Green which offers great bluegrass and Appalachian mountain music. We would have stayed for 3 nights, but could only stay for two as they were booked. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, quiet, small park on the east side of Asheville. It's very close easy access to I-40. The manager is SO nice and friendly, helpful also. They keep the lawns mowed, clean park, level sites. We had planned to stay 2 weeks, but extended our stay to almost a month. There is a river running right behind the park, and you can fish in it. We have a large 40 foot 5th wheel with 5 slides, and it was not a problem to fit in our site. We would recommend this park to anyone. Not sure of the nightly rate, we paid a monthly rate, which is less. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
