Very nice campground! We had booked at a different local campground and it was so terrible we came here. The sites are spacious and the grounds are well kept. Each campsite backs up to the creek. The Wifi is fabulous! As fast as our cable internet at home. They have a pool table in the registration office, and the staff was superb! We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Motorhome.

The location is great, only 10-15 minutes from Tweetsie Railroad. I gave this park a 6 because it is so very tight. To be fair, I booked my site the night before. The person on the phone asked me three times about the size of my fifth wheel and was told repeatedly, it was 40 feet long and had four slides. We were given a very narrow site with a tight back-in. Cars and trailers were parked up against the road and in some cases hanging into the road. We were unable to get into the site and had to be given another site. At first we were told there was no where else to put us. This was after 9 pm and we were three hours from home. They did eventually give us one of their seasonal sites by the creek. It was tight but we got in after someone moved a car. The site was so small we had to park the truck by the office instead of at the site. Leaving we had to squeeze between trucks hanging in the road with about six inches to spare on either side of the rig. Lots of seasonal campers here who were very nice. They had a nice little playground and a pleasant walking trail in the woods. This campground is better for smaller rigs. If you have a big rig, I wouldn't stay here as you will have trouble getting into your spot. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Trout and Barrel is a nice restaurant near the campground. Tweetsie railroad is a lot of fun for younger kids. Lots to do in this area, we didn't get enough time to do everything.

This was our first time camping for 4 days to do a little fall leaf watching. We got there at 6PM and was able to check in at the office. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. I wanted to use my satellite dish but tree canopy is very thick. But, they offer a free cable box. They put us in site # 49 which is on the creek with full hookups. I have a 30 foot RV, and with a little patience, I was able to get my rig into the back-in site. The site are a bit tight but this campground was built in 1970 when the rigs where a bit smaller. The sites are bit un-level so you’ll need some leveling blocks to make rig level. The WiFi is strong near the office but gets very weak as you move away from the office and non-existent at our site. The campground does have a very large green sign at the bottom of the hill on the right going down NC Hwy 105 at the entrance of the campground. It’s not hard to find but does take a trained eye to spot the road sign. NC Hwy 105 does have a lot of truck traffic so it's a bit tricky pulling out with your rig heading back toward Boone which is a left-hand turn on to NC Hwy 105. Yes, there's a bit of engine braking noise from the trucks but no different than a near by train with other campgrounds. The road down into the campground is a steep hill but slow down and you'll have no problems getting in or out of the campground. If you have time and you're heading toward Grandfather Mountain and/or Linville Falls which is a right-hand turn out of the campground, I would highly recommend that you visit Famous Louise's Rock House Restaurant located in Linville Falls directly off NC Hwy 221 S. We enjoyed the campground and we would come back! We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

rate based on $197 for 7 days. 1st the good. Excellent service from staff, very friendly and helpful, outstanding! Lots of shade and a great stream running through the camp. Restrooms were great. The not so good. Tight spots. I only bought my 20' rig with no slide and there was no extra room. The cable TV system was out the 1980's. You had to have a box for each TV, but the staff warned me it was hit and miss. But the service from the staff made this family owned park all worth it. If you are coming get a river front site, we will be back. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is well maintained and the employees are friendly and helpful.The park is located 3 miles from downtown Boone. We stayed in site 33 which is on the creek running the park. There are many creek front sites, most with sewage. The restroom and showers are clean, well maintained and heated. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean campground, with friendly staff. It's in a beautiful area. It's been mentioned before, but the entrance does come up quickly, but if you know the general area to look for, you will be fine. The sites are small, but ample to do what you need to do. This was the first trip with a much longer trailer than I was used to. The other campers were very helpful and nice in assisting us with getting into our spot. The creek is nice, but will try to stay at a pull through site next time. Yes, we will go back. The cable had better reception than we are used to. The campground is nice, quite and relaxing. Even our 16 month old made a friend with another child in the campground he also enjoyed his time at the campground and nearby Tweetsie railroad for the Thomas weekend. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We returned because the campground is pleasant with lots of mature trees and some attractive, stream-side sites. We had to split between sites to get a full week, a reflection of the camp's popularity - some come here for the whole summer. We enjoyed getting together with relatives and were fairly well accommodated, given the holiday limited site availability. There are a surprising number of cultural activities in Boone, a university town, and nearby Banner Elk, an upscale community. Emphasis is on country music, but there's summer theater at Lees-Mcrae College. However, I down graded to a 7 because: dryer out of order for weeks. Wi-Fi throughout is poor to none in evening and some times in non-peak / daytime hours. Water pressure is low - small pipes just don't get the flow to more distant sites. But, yes, we would return.

Very clean little park, but very tight. Our site backed up to the stream, and with our awing out we were almost touching our neighbor. Their sewer connection was 5 feet from our picnic table. Nice area to walk the dogs around in, and the folks their for the whole summer were very friendly! We just did not like the tight sites. Also coming east off Grand Father mountain we could not make left hand turn into park. We had to go up the road and make u-turn and come back down to campground.

We stayed 4 nights and love the place, management is super nice and very helpful. We were in site 70 right at the office so Wi-Fi was great. Nothing real fancy here but it is very clean and quite. We will be back soon. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in site #36 on the creek. The staff was pleasant and helpful. This is a very nice campground with level sites and easy access from the road. Wi-Fi was strong at our site, which was wonderful since we did not get the Wi-Fi the night before at one of the other nearby campgrounds. The bathrooms were dated but kept clean. There seem to be many seasonal or long-term campers here but they kept their outside sites neat and decorated for the fall. We would definitely return.

Pleasant park with nice shade at many sites. We camped with a babbling brook immediately under our rear window. Rest rooms / showers are simple but adequate. Staff was pleasant. Wi-Fi was very good at our site 11 spaces from the office. With one antenna for whole camp, signal strength may be weak at some more distant sites. Entrance is at the bottom of a long hill when heading west on Rt. 105 (3.5 mi from center of Boone). One must be prepared to signal a turn well before entry to avoid rear ending. Turns out of campground to the right are ill advised for big rigs with when towing a trailer, tight turn. Excellent for visiting nearby attractions on the Blue Ridge Parkway, e.g., Linville / Linville Falls, Lin Cove Viaduct. Also strategically located near Boone, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis. As adults, we'd stay here again, little at camp for kids to do. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are level. General condition of the camp is below average. Manager was extremely helpful and willing to accommodate us however she could. Campground had a number of seasonal sites, most were packed up for the winter. This campground is acceptable for a one night stay if you get in a pinch. Having said that, we would not return. CAUTION:if you stay here, do not attempt to enter from the south if you are in a big rig. The sign is hard to spot so follow the directions exactly as provided by the campground website.

We chose this campground due to it closeness to ASU. We stayed in cabin #9 with 2 adults, 2 teens and a medium-sized dog. The staff was helpful and polite. The game room was so-so, video games fairly outdated, pool table was ok but all of the sticks needed recapped. The store had a very limited number of items. The bath house was standard campground fare, a bit run down but fairly clean. The showers were hot! It was well supplied with hand soap and paper towels/toilet paper. Our cabin exceeded our expectations. I have been to campgrounds where their "camping cabins" are little more than sheds with beds. Our cabin was very roomy and had a double (bit of a saggy mattress) and a set of bunks. The small night stand, table and bookshelf all came in handy for storing our stuff. No linens and the mattresses and pillows all were covered in plastic. No heat so bring a good sleeping bag in colder weather. There was a ceiling fan and plenty of windows so the airflow was good. The porch was a nice bonus that came in handy since it rained all weekend. The parking was awkward, you park in the yard and then the neighbor's fire will get soot and ash all over your vehicle because their fire ring is entirely too close. There is a limited amount of "extra" spaces by the office, which is where we put our truck. The road noise on the cabin side of the campground was minimal, but fairly loud everywhere else We will definitely stay here again, but more of a "base" from which to enjoy all the area has to offer, rather than a "destination" in itself.

Small campground and it's a little hard getting in and out of. Friendly and helpful staff though and our campsite backed up to a creek. I think that most of the campers were there for the summer. We stayed one night in a motorhome. We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Motorhome.
