The owner has sold TAPS RV. The park will close on 20 June 2018. The new owner will probably use the property for something other than a campground. That is sad, because we have stayed there for several years. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Taps RV Park is conveniently located in Asheville, NC, just off I-40 and on 70. It is located a mile from an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a small, privately run park with one owner, who has the property up for sale because he wants to retire. The owner is a friendly guy and is not on site much, but he is available by phone if needed. The location is unique, but super convenient! Taps RV Park is on route 70 across from an Arby's, behind a Mobil gas station, and next to a B&T Bank, yet private & quiet enough to get a good nights sleep and feel safe. The sites are concrete with a gravel center. This is unique and lovely, because your jacks come down on level concrete! The sites are close together, but there was plenty of room to put our slides out and walk between other RVs. Each site had a concrete pad with a picnic table. There are only forty-seven sites in Taps RV Park. You park your tow vehicle or toad in front of your RV perpendicular to your site. Each site had a concrete slab area with a picnic table. TAPS has great wi-fi, two unisex bathrooms with one toilet and one shower per bathroom, but no pool or playground equipment. We did not hear any road noise, which was amazingly pleasant for how close to Route 70 and I-40 Taps is located, but there are trains that go by the back of the park, but they do not use their whistles, so they did not disturb us. The photos on their website are current and accurate, yet hard to find. Go to AshevilleTapsRVPark.com; Park Information; About the Park to view their photos. If you go to the Photo Gallery tab, it says under construction. If you are looking for a fancy RV resort with a lot of amenities including a pool, this is not the park for you. If you want a small, peaceful, convenient, reasonably priced RV park to park your rig, Taps RV Park is the perfect RV park for you. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First, the positive - great wifi. Quiet, except for the nightly trains which we got used to quickly. Great location - close to the Blue Ridge, as well as Asheville. However, when we called ahead and told him we had a 42 foot fifth wheel, he said no problem. When we got there, it was a major deal first of all, to find the place - we drove by, missing the sign, and had to drive quite a ways to find a place to turn around. Finally got in, and let me tell you, those spots are TIGHT! Plus they are short, so you have to park your truck in front of your rv, parallel to the street. With everybody parking that way, it was really hard to get straightened out and parked properly. If you have a small rv, it wouldn't be a big deal. The owner guy just laughed off our comments about how tight things are. We saw big class A's pull in, and the trouble they had too. As was said before, the place is for sale, so "'nuff said". We wouldn't stay there again. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We picked this RV park because of its proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the friendliness of the owner when we called to book. Other reviewers have mentioned that this is a tight campground, and it is - but we don't spend much time in the campground, we are out and about. Anyway, you will be pretty well jammed into your space, but it is doable if you have experience. The bathrooms were a joke - hadn't been cleaned in months, plus they ran out of TP and did not replace over a four day period. amazing. The place just isn't that big!! No amenities, cable worked but poorly. Big surprise was the Wifi, which was very good. This is convenient as all get out and decent value for the area. Would we stay here again? Nope. Would pay a bit more to get a lot more. Also, note the place is up for sale...ergo no surprise it is not being maintained in any sense of the word. I climbed up on the roof of our fiver and cut off a big limb that needed to be trimmed on the tree marking the edge of our spot. Picnic table was so far gone it was unusable. I should also note that is has concrete pads, which was nice. With a bit of updating and maintenance this could be a kick-butt place! We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy hop to the Blue Ridge - only about a mile up the road. Also easy access to I-40 which takes you to the Biltmore and connects to roads leading to Pisgah, Dupont forests. VERY convenient. Arby's right across the road if you like "the meats." Right next to a Mobil gas station. Pretty quiet, but there is a train that sounds like it is running right through your RV twice an evening...

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Location, Location as I say. The Blue Ridge Parkway is maybe if that one mile down from Taps. Downtown Asheville is a straight shoot down one road, you can not get lost. Biltmore is five miles off I40. There are a grocery store and a WalMart just down the road as well. We stayed at Taps RV park one week in a 50 amp pull through site which is in the middle of the park. For the money you can not beat it. You have the river behind the back-end sites which are 30amp. Our site leveled concrete with extra gravel to the right, so your feet do not step in mud when it rains, which it did one day. Cable was excellent, and internet was very good. A family owned RV park. The staff was helpful with any needs or help. Taps does not list washer and dryer, but has one on site. We plan to come back for a winter stay. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tight spaces, cars park on roads make it hard to maneuver. Only one combo washer/dryer operated through the office only, which is closed most of the time. Rude, unfriendly management. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a good place to stop for a day or two. Approximately fifty percent of the sites are pull-throughs. The pads are concrete. The sites are adequate, but the narrow roads are a real problem. There is no place to park the tow vehicle or car. The turns are real tight which makes it difficult for big rigs to navigate. There are also a couple trees that have low branches that are potential problems. All roads are gravel. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
