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. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Almost anything you could want. Downtown Asheville and The Builtmore Estate are an easy 10 minutes away. The Blueridge Parkway and the Pisca Forest are close. Waynesville, Maggie Valley and Cherokee NC (with the great Casino) are all close enough for a short, beautiful mountain drive.

Gravel roads, tight turns. Bathrooms were not clean. The park is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance and convenient to the Biltmore Estate. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Only stayed one night on the way to Chapel Hill. Sites are small, restrooms and showers were ok.

Campground owners were very nice. Location was perfect for one night stop. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

Smaller, older park, but had all the basics covered, except laundry facilities. Wifi worked prettying good. Owner was very friendly and helped out with activities in the area. Sites were a little close, but we were gone during the day, so it was okay. This park is not a vacation destination but it worked out well for seeing the sites of Asheville. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

$250/wk. Pad sites are split concrete with gravel in middle. Tow car must be parked perpendicular at front, 1/2 on drive. Drives are all gravel and adequate width. Concrete patio w/table. Sites are very close & driver's side too close to pedestal to open one storage bay on the slide. Owner very friendly & helpful. WiFi was good but must login again each time laptop is closed. DISH satellite SD reception good but no HD for locals (out of Greenville SC)--probably a DISH issue. Easy to miss entry beside Mobil gas station, so watch closely for it. Surrounded by trees, few inside.

This is a convenience park, virtually inside the city, not a destination. No pool or stuff for kids. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Older park with tighter turns and you are close to one another. However as a base for the Blue Ridge Parkway it is excellent. WE had a pull through and 50 amp service. There is cable. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
