Stayed two weeks while investigating Asheville. Next to very nice walking and bike trails and a park. It is directly on the French Broad River, which was neat. The owner is almost never in his store. Best to call him and wait for him to call back, which he does. There is significant traffic noise, but didn't bother me that much. WIFI was passworded, with a cost, I assume. I was going to ask him about it, but he was never in the office, and I didn't bother calling. Used our phone's hotspot, which worked fine. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our 2nd stay at Wilson's, both times were uneventful, and yes we will return. What I Liked: Three miles to downtown Asheville NC, a city alive with peoples, outdoor cafes and street entertainers. A New Orleans feel. The RV Park is located within a Park/Recreational Area. Miles of paved bike/hike paths. Rafting and biking rentals are within walking distance. All sites have level cement pads, water, 30/50 amp, sewage. Half the site are on the French Broad River with a beautiful view. Most sites have shade. Other Observations: The park is located between two busy interstates, i.e. road noise. The park office is closed after 5 pm and on weekends. Could not get the cable TV to work at my site (#9). I left three voice mails and one email and never received a response from the park. You can not reserve a specific site. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here a week. GOOD: Concrete pad, nice river setting, and shade trees. BAD: Sorry 50 amp electrical service, 113 volts before we turned anything on. After turning on 1 air conditioner after about 15 minutes the voltage was down to 104 and our EMS shut down the power to the trailer. I hooked up our 30 amp Autoformer and went with 30 amp. The 30 amp receptacle was only showing 113 volts also but with the Autoformer it was over 120 volts. After starting the AC again it had maintained 120 volts. Thank goodness the Autoformer works like it should. The water pressure fluctuates like crazy from 78 pounds to 22 pounds. If you are in the shower it might be going good and then it goes to a trickle. There are several long term people with junked up sites. Also, there are several rigs that seem to be unoccupied and had no one around them for the week we were there. The guy in the site next to us had to hook up to a 'Y' in the next site over for water as his water spigot was out of service. This could be a real nice park with just a little work but they don't seem to care about doing any work. Check-in is crazy at the office of the auto repair shop. That is if the manager is there and it is open. We would have left after the first night but there are no refunds. We made it through the week running on 30 amp with the water heater on propane. We would never come here again. For people who don't know running an AC under 108 volts will shorten the life of the AC motor and also on any other electric motor you might have. Like I said we would never come here again. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I wanted to like this park. It is nicely situated on the French Broad river with a great biking, walking trail going through the middle of the park. Dog friendly. Really close to Biltmore and downtown Asheville. As others have noted there is I-240 just above the park, lots or road noise that was easily manageable inside the RV by turning on a fan. We went to their website and noted that they were a Passport America park so in order to get the $15 rate we joined PA since this visit alone would pay for the membership. They had taken our information for a reservation but when we arrived they did not seem to have any system for reservations. Since we had a "reservation" we could not get the PA rate. However, there was no evidence that they had any idea we were coming. There were 3 sites left, we barely fit on one of them. The park was full. The power was spotty at best and was not really 50 AMP luckily it was cool. The water pressure was horrible especially in the mornings. At $15 this park would be a 6, at $30 it is a 4. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small but central location. Close to Interstate but entrance to park is a little confusing. Limited number of overnight, non-seasonal sites when we were there. Reasonable value for location which is next to a great river front walkway. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is sort of a special RV park. It is right on the French Broad River and right next to a very nice public recreation area. It is also the closest RV Park to the Biltmore. We had a back-in site right next to the river. Our coach is a rear living room model so we were just 15 feet from the river's edge. The view was great. The park is fairly small but the roads are paved and each site is on a concrete slab, that was level. You check in at the office, which is passed the park and located in an RV service facility. The person that checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. Since we were expecting a lot of rain, one of the park employees told us not to worry if we saw the river rise a few feet. We stayed two nights and would not hesitate to stay there again if in the area. The road noise was evident but since we were using the AC, it was not a problem. It was a very pleasant experience.

The rate is a Passport rate. This park has nice concrete pads, a river, a bike/walking path & beautiful trees in bloom. The WiFi did not work. You have to use a special cable box to get cable but that did not work. My Verizon Mi-Fi & Sprint phone did work well. The biggest problem for us was the relentless traffic noise. You could not speak to people outside without yelling. Inside with everything closed up, the traffic was still loud and only died down between around 1am to 6am. It was a little difficult getting the scoop on getting into the park as well. Don't try to do the right turn into the park from the off ramp. You have to go 50 yds further and pull into the repair shop lot which is where the office is and register. Then there is a pull around when you make a left that will get you into the park. The trail that goes through the park has heavy use by locals, so there is always people walking by from outside the park. I would not stay here again unless the city built sound barrier walls to drown out the highway noise. It was Really loud and continuous. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a wonderful park. We originally planned to stay for a couple weeks. We ended up staying for almost six!! This is a no-frills park. No playground, no meeting rooms, no dog park (but a municipal hike/bike trail literally bisects it). Those things are not useful for us so we were glad to not be paying for them. A perfect park for us with its location, views. concrete pads, Wi-Fi, and cable TV. It has easy access to the rest of the city and all Asheville has to offer. The way it sits on the banks of the French Broad river in a valley keeps wind to a minimum and highway noise is very low. The river edge was about 15 feet out our back window. The way the park is oriented you would never think you were in an urban setting. Were I to own an RV park, I would want this one or one just like it. We cannot wait to return. The restrooms/showers were closed for the winter but that was no problem as we use our own. This is going to be one of our favorite parks, I can tell. Be sure to say "Hi!" to Tony and give Cooper, his dog, a pat on the head. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is Passport America but they will not take reservations for that so we paid the full price. You pick your own spot and several with the trees can be a problem for your roof and the things up there. There are nice cement patios and we have cable. We understand not all sites have cable though. As far as we can see there is not a bath or shower facility. We scored them low due to the road noise 24/7. It is really one of the worse places for road noise that we have found in the last 3 years. On the plus side there are no trains and it is convenient to catch the Blue Ridge Parkway and to tour the Biltmore Estate. We probably would not stay here again for the noise reason.

The rate we paid was based on P/A. They do not take reservations for P/A. If you plan on staying during a special event, you will need to make reservations at their going rate. This park is right on the river with nice back-in sites. It is a little tricky getting into the park. When you exit the freeway at the bottom of the ramp you see the RV Park on your right. But go straight and immediately turn right into the parking area for the registration office of the park. Then after registering you will have to make a u-turn to get into the park.

There appears to be about 12 riverfront sites and twelve non riverfront sites. When we visited the riverfront sites were full. So we camped in a non riverfront site. These all appear to severely slope down from back to front. Despite using jacks at maximum extension at the front, our RV was still sloping forward. Our water pressure was very low. Cable did not work on our site, and I noticed several sites did not even have cable hook ups. Lots of permanent campers, some of which are shabby and let this park down. Concrete slabs range from 30-48 feet. Which means that most 40+ rigs leave no room for parking a tow. Most people park across the front of their rig, half on the slab and half on the grass. It had been raining before we arrived, and noticed this practice makes deep muddy ruts in the grass here. If you are a light sleeper, this park is on the side of a major interstate, extremely noisy all night long. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. Do pay attention to posts about getting to the campground. You take exit 1-c off Interstate 240/26. At the bottom of the ramp is a sign that says turn here. Don't. Go 150 feet farther to the RV repair facility. That's the office. Then you have to swing across the road into a turn lane to get into the park. Once you're in, it's a nice place. On the bank, literally, of the French Broad River which was very clear when we were there. The owner was a neat fellow. We gave it a 9 instead of 10 because we don't know anything about park amenities. Nice concrete pads. Full hookup. Easy to back into from a very wide center area. Local (paved section) of the greenway goes through the middle of the park. It's close to the West Asheville Arts District and neat local restaurants about a mile or so east; the standard row of chain restaurants, about a mile or so west. Convenient spot to access the entire Asheville area and pleasant to return to. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

First thing is getting into the park. As you exit the freeway you see the park below and to your right, there is a huge sign that reads: "Exit now, then turn right". The problem is, the turn is a 180 degree turn that no rig over about 25 foot long would be able to make. You need to go about another 100 feet ahead and pull into the RV Repair lot on your right. This is where the office is located. You may want to disconnect a tow vehicle here if you are over 35 feet long, because the turn to get back to the park is pretty tight. I suggested to the manager that they may want to change the directions in Passport America site, but he didn't seem to think there was a problem. Once you get into the park, you will find a very lovely setting. When I pulled through, I thought I was in a state park and the commercial park was down the road. Half the sites are on the riverside and the other half are against a hill with the freeway above. The sites are all concrete and all back-in with a triple-wide access road between them. Each site is wide with full grown trees between each site. It is full-hookup with 50 amp service, cable TV and internet connection. To get to the internet connection, you have to go to a browser, which brings up their site and then just click on the link shown and you are connected free-of-charge. The adjoining freeway is fairly level and about 50 feet above the campground at this point so the noise from the freeway is not that bad. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park right next to the freeway. It is on the bike trail, so there are lots of walkers, bikers, joggers, etc.. Very nice looking park. Check in at the store, pay and then pick a site. All sites are back in. Rate is for Passport America. We would stay here again. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. Park looks nice. I don't know about owners/workers we never saw them. We put our money in a locked box and stayed 2 days and then left. If you desire a peaceful, quite setting this is not the place. There is an extremely busy road right above the campground. The noise factor is the only reason that I gave a poor review. if it is not an issue then you might be happy staying here. We camped at Wilson's Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
