We chose this location because it was close to friends in Fletcher. The campground is small and there are cabins for rent as well. It is older, but the sites were nice - we were right along the stream and enjoyed listening to the water rushing at night.

The camp store was convenient and none of the items were marked up like most camp stores. We bought firewood and some items that we forgot to store in the camper. The staff was friendly.

The campground could get noisy during the day, especially Saturday and Sunday, because it is located right off of Hwy 74A, which is a favorite ride for many motorcycle enthusiasts. We were gone most of the day, so it didn't bother us, and it goes away at dusk.

The kids enjoyed the creek and the campground pool. This place is nothing fancy, but it's a great jumping off point to get to Chimney Rock or Asheville. We would recommend the park, but only if you get the creekside sites. The picnic tables were ok. The benches were very narrow, so we made the kids sit there...the table was good for a food table, but not for adults to eat at.

The road into the campground, Hwy 74A, can be a bit tricky to navigate, but if you are a seasoned camper and adept at pulling a trailer, it shouldn't be too bad. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Please be aware that the pictures for this campground on the internet are completely different that what you will see. The campground is very small and there are mostly cabins and very old ratty permanent campers here. There are very few sites for rvs. The stream is about 2 inches deep and fishing is not going to happen. The sewer hook ups for all the sites are at the front door of the next camper, so you will smell sewer gas the whole visit. There are also campsites in front of others on the creek, so this could lead to people getting blocked in. The campsites are just poorly laid out with very little room. There are just better options. We will not stay here again. For the price, there are just better options. The owners are very nice and they have taken over this campground for about a year. There is just too much work that still needs to be done. The sewer system is unacceptable. You've been warned. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful, fun, family friendly park. Favorite part is Bingo with prizes on Sat. night for the whole family. Recommend to any and all. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Motorhome.

Pool, store, arcade and stream nice. Campsite given was out in the open in front of the store, no shade. Small space to park travel trailer w/truck. The owners were very polite, the store was great, everything very reasonably priced. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We made the mistake of prepaying for 10 days at the campground. Our first impressions were not good. The overflowing dumpsters and can recycling bins met us at the front. There is one bathhouse at the top of a huge hill to service the entire campground and it was never clean! Floors were always muddy and wet; toilets were never clean and bugs galore. No towels or soap dispensers by sinks. The water flow from showerheads was terrible--just a trickle and the water was either scalding hot or freezing cold. We bought a shower house at Walmart and ended up taking showers using the outdoor shower on our camper. Two out of four washers worked and one out of three dryers worked. We spent gas money driving to Asheville to do laundry. When we voiced our complaints, owner just shrugged his shoulders. Campsites were very small and not defined. Faucet at campsite was leaking. We will not stay here ever again. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Tent Trailer.

Nice staff. Place is either very run down, or really country. Depending on how you look at it. Only stayed one night. Electric hook up had a insect problem. Water line was leaking into a mud pool. We did not hook it up. Bath house needed a lot of attention. It was a late afternoon, road was difficult and rain was starting, so I was glad to find this campground. Probably a good place to camp and let the kids run wild. Did not get a chance to try the pool. (biggest draw). We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Motorhome.

We did not stay at this park but ventured up to see it before considering it for future use. The directions to get there say there is a 6 mile winding road to entrance. This is UNDERSTATEMENT. Talk about remote! Yes,it was a terrible 6 mile winding run, all UP! We would not even try to pull our fifth wheel up there plus once you got there and you wanted to go to town or sight-see the area there was that terrible 6 mile up and down road. The views were pretty awesome going up the mountain, the campground looked OK but we didn't even go in the office to find out. No way would we try that drive but I guess some would enjoy the remoteness of the campground. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsite and fire ring were filled with trash. Showers and restrooms were dirty and loaded with insects. Water hookup at site had constant leak from pipes resulting in permanent puddle next to site. Sites were very tight and not well defined. No services or office available, had to search for manager. We camped at Creekside Mountain Camping in a Motorhome.
