Nice owners, its a bit out of the way, but is well worth it. You can walk over to where you want to fish and don't have to drive. We will go back again. - campamytime

The Campgrounds very run down, and looks nothing like web page what so ever. The restrooms are nothing more then upgraded outhouses and NOT clean at all. The shower house is an outdoor wooden shack with a screen door covered with several layers of plastic so you can not see inside. We attempted to talk to owners and they were NOT concerned at all. - John4nc

Office was closed when we got there. I tried calling the number but was sent to answering machine. Owner later returned call after we had parked. There is a secure gate that blocks off the sites and if one of the residents hadn't opened it for us, we would not have been able to stay. The sites are very unlevel and the buckets covering the water hook-ups are filthy. This place needs TLC and lots of it. We paid in the morning when the office opened at 9. We would not stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

Very rustic park, a long loop in a canyon. Interior roads are gravel and rough, sites are grass and really off level. Worst part is that it rained quite heavily the week we were there and our site became a mud puddle. Wifi is good. We probably wouldn't return., - Wandering Wishnies

Great location as a base for hiking and exploring Waterfall country. The park itself is well kept, but could use a little work. There is some traffic noisemakers but not unbearable. The bathrooms and showers were basic, nothing fancy, but could use some better ventilation to get the moisture out. The main problem I had was the geese around the pond. You had to watch your steps! The park is currently for sale, - Cosmopack

Curvy road getting there but campground was in a beautiful setting. Covered patio with big screen TV and fireplace used every night for friendly gatherings. Hosts kept the whole area clean every day. Mix of return visitors and first timers like us. - J and T RV Travels

Stay on the Ridge for incredible views of the mountains. Really nice club house and pool on the Ridge. Extremely friendly residents!
This resort is as good as it gets!! - rumboy1

This is a "destination" RV resort. There is nothing close by, but the resort is very nice with one big exception. The main clubhouse on the ridge has great view and a beautiful place to watch the sunset from the hot tub or just sit in a chair and relax.....except for one thing....a bunch of screaming kids who arrive about and hour before sunset! I'm sure their parents think they are cute and having fun, but the rest of us saw a bunch screaming brats running around the pool. If there were on rule, it should be no children after 8PM! We tried 5 nights to enjoy that pool/hot tub at night and only made it once when the screaming brats weren't there. Luckily there was another hot tub and pool, no view, but better than listening to that! Beyond that, yes, the wifi is worthless, but frankly, if I ever went to an RV park with even decent wifi, I would fall over! The rest of the resort is amazing, expensive for an RV park, but worth it. We don't mind driving to do things, so that was not a big deal. Great places to walk the dogs, super clean and when we were there, not crowded. I would go again and next time I will ask management to keep the kids out of the pool! That was worst part of the whole thing. So all in all not bad. The drive in is curvy, but we've been at this for years and it's totally doable! We drive a 43 ft coach with a tow vehicle. - scubajoe

This is a beautiful place....very clean and we'll constructed. The staff was more than helpful and very friendly. We didn't use the bath house but I'm sure it's immaculate. We found the last 8 miles of the trip to be quite challenging but doable. If u go out and about be prepared for curvy hilly roads. We experienced other drivers on our bumper because we weren't doing 60 in a 35 speed zone. Let's say u should plan anything u do outside the resort to be a "day trip".
I couldn't give a 10 because there is no usable wifi at our site and the road leading into the resort for the last 8 miles is pretty risky and to go out and about requires patience. The scenery of Carolina Blue and the mountains outweigh the driving to the local areas. - Bob Ratliff

Huge campground with multiple loops, but you'd never know it when staying in any of the loops. We were in a loop with lots of foliage cover and privacy. We had planned on only staying a couple days but enjoyed our stay so much we extended it. It was quiet during the weekend, but when the weekend arrived it did get busier with families and kids on bikes. Showers were spacious and very clean. Our loop had two bathrooms, although we were told the shower in one of them had no hot water. Limited or no cell service but wifi available in the parking area near the amphitheater. Would definitely return if we find ourselves in the area again. - Marsha D

Davidson River Campground is located in the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, next to the Davidson River. The campground has several loops with some electric only sites. Most sites have no hookups. A dump station is available with potable water available at the station. The sites are shaded and spacious with trees and forest separating them from each other. Campground staff patrol the grounds at night and enforce quite times. We have enjoyed several stays at Davidson River and will return in the near future. - burnswl

Although the staff and the campground is very good, I did not give it 10 because only 1 of their loops have electric hookup. It was full at this time. I am pretty sure that it is full most of the time. It is the loop closest to the front gate. So all other loops have no power available. Therefore, you bring generator or just use battery power for lighting. No AC refrigerator, no AC, no heater, no charging ability for phone, camera, computer. Also, No WiFi and a very faint cell reception. I was able to sent text but no calls. So consider that for emergency family contact issues. Other than that, the area is beautiful. Hwy 276 is top notch leading you north to the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Hwy 280 is 4 lane. Hwy 64 is 2 lane. I recommend getting there via 280 if getting there from I-26. - danny kim

Beautiful park for tent campers. Very clean. Roads a little steep and other sites pretty small; we had no trouble with our 24' travel trailer on the site we were given, but I didn't see another site we would fit on. Quite off the beaten path. Owners were extremely nice and very helpful. - bdodson

Very nice park in a beautiful area just outside of Brevard. Owners are very friendly and provide a wealth of information about local attractions and happenings. Park was quiet and well maintained. Wi-Fi is available but spotty during bad weather. Cell phone service is nonexistent. Only negatives where the narrow streets, small sites and they don't take credit cards. If you have a small RV, its a pretty nice place to stay. - John G

This was our third trip to Brevard and our second stay at Ash Grove. Once again it did not disappoint! The owners are gracious and beyond helpful. The sites are beautiful. The location is convenient to town but far enough out that you feel nature everywhere. Every time we go camping my youngest son begs to be taken back to Ash Grove. It really epitomizes what camping is all about. - TNGina

We have camped here before and were sorely disappointed to learn the this campground will be closing down for good at the end of October. The property has been sold to a developer to create a gated Equine community. This is a real gem, very secluded. We camped here in late July when it was 95 degrees everywhere in the south and the temperature in this campground at 5:00 PM was only 72 degrees - felt so good. The management/owners are very helpful. If you get the chance, experience the unique campground before it is gone. - dieseldrive

The park is nestled in a valley between two mountains. It is very shaded and we had perfect temperatures (70-72) even though we were camping in August. The staff and owners are quite friendly and make you feel like one of the family. There are group activities on weekends, a (pay) trout pond and 20 miles in either direction are nice little towns with gift shops, restaurants, etc... The park is level, which is unusual in the mountains. Lots of trees, and some backing is tight, but the owner will help guide you into your spot. Expect a strain on your engine to get there--and check those brakes, too! This was one of the most peaceful, relaxing camping trips ever! We will definitely make this a regular thing. - McMudder

This campground opened May 9 and was empty but for one camper when we arrived. Only Loop B was open which is intended for tents and pop up campers but there were many spots that could accommodate our 30’ trailer. Only a few of these had an additional space where we could park our truck. Reservations and the remaining campground open on May 15. All spots are spaced well apart with lots of vegetation in between so lots of privacy. The bathhouses have hot showers and look like they’ve been recently updated. Very clean and nice. Water is available throughout the campground but there are no hookups at individual sites. There is a dump station upon exit. All sites are paved and appear to be level. Each site has a fire ring, leveled gravel pad for a tent, picnic table and a bear box. The Mt. Pisgah Inn is just across the Parkway (1/4 mile walk) and has a great restaurant. There is also a camp store with coin laundry facilities a little further away. The campground is at 5,000’ so many of trees are still without leaves in early May. We would definitely stay here again. - Barefootdog

NPS Campground directly on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a great location. A almost 5000 feet it gets you above the summer heat, and the lots are mostly secluded. Loop A is the least level, Loop B improves, and Loops C/D (tent camping only) are pretty flat. If you want hot showers, be aware that Loop A has a toilet, but no showers. This is a great rustic campground in a mature wooded environment. No hookups (2 dump + 2 water stations). Very impressed with how well the staff keeps the place up. The Pisgah Inn / Restaurant is directly across the street (5-10 minute walk) so if you feel like not cooking there is a great breakfast/lunch/dinner option nearby - with beer/wine license. - Pugsly

Most the sites in B Loop (which has a shower), were level and didn't require blocking. Even though it is on a hill, the gravel pads were level for parking. Night temps are cool so A/C not required. Most sites shady and well spaced. Some sites are reservable on line. Campground host was friendly. - On the Road again 11

I love this park! Great swimming area and grounds are clean and well kept. Hostess were friendly and very helpful. Nice campers store on site. Only problem I seen was the campground didn't have enough bath houses and the staffs cleaning schedule was during prime shower time. Overall this is a wonderful campground and we will visit again. - Rhonda Andrews

We just got an email stating that this campground is closed. Not open for 2016 and not taking reservations.
What a shame, it was a great place. - epperson1

Campground is older style and roads are narrow, we were limited to 30 amp service (they only have a small number of 50 amp sites), No cell phone service from Verizon. There are sites large enough to accommodate larger rigs, getting to them can be a challenge. Nice place to stay, especially for the canoe or kayak enthusiast. Several waterfalls to enjoy in the area, one you can access via canoe from CG. Mostly gravel roads and all sites are gravel, sites are close to one another, but by no means as close as a typical KOA. Camp store was well stocked, staff was very friendly. - Tn22

Black Forest was a very quiet campground with easy access to DuPont State Forest, Brevard, and Pisgah National Forest. There is a narrow, winding, gravel road that leads to check-in. The pool was open, but we didn't use it. The sites were level and the bathrooms were clean.
The campground has "Resort" in the name, but there is nothing about the campground that is resort-like. Our site was a pull-in which meant that the back of our rig was closest to the road - we arrived on a Thursday and asked to change to a back in site, but were told that they were already assigned (not reserved) and could not be changed - very inflexible, IMHO. The owners have strung a cable across the road leading to the campground sites - it is inconvenient to have to remove and replace the cable every time in and out.
Finally, the steps leading to the bathroom are uneven and there are no rails on either side to help steady folks walking up or down the stairs. At the least, it is dangerous, especially for older campers, and is also not constructed to code.
There are better choices in the area. - uga1988

Nice park in a very scenic area. Restrooms & shower house were very clean. Hosts were very helpful with info on the area. My only "negative" on this place was they assign you a site. I understand they need to manage their place, but if it's not crowded, then why can't you go in and scope out your own site that you prefer? - Bob806

The park is well laid out. You don't feel like you are crammed in next to your neighbor. There are plenty of spots for every type of camping equipment (tent to large RV).
The owners are on site, VERY friendly. helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
The facilities are clean and well kept.
The only downside is that I couldn't find a spot with 50 amp service (oh well...1st world camping problems). - ETCTA
