3 Parks near Candler, North Carolina
Apr 2016 - $30.00
This came up as a Good Sam recommendation - three 9's.
I have read the reviews and do not understand...
The site is on top of I-40 highway, very noisy.
The sites are very small, on top of your neighbors and a heavy slant.
Compared to many of the KOAs that we have stayed at - roughly all around, less facilities for the kids. - BettieFordonTour

Stopped for one night. Very friendly and helpful staff. Decent access from I-40. Full hookup pullthrough site clean and level with fire pit and picnic table. Fuel at exit. Wi-Fi was excellent. Price was similar or lower than surrounding RV parks. Pet friendly, but dog walk areas are just so-so. - BounderPounder

Fine park. Close to Asheville town and Blue Ridge Parkway.- about 10 miles. Friendly staff. Visit to Biltmore Estate a must - tickets at park office good for two days.
Site (F-2) within 1 degree off of level.
Would definitely return. - Joe Chernow

Basic RV park, no frills. Elect/water/sewer/cable. Sites are near to level, crushed rock. Some road noise, but not an issue. Passport GPS listing was 7/10 of a mile too far Nov 15th, 2012. If you miss the entrance there are places to turn around 1.2 miles south. Hwy 151 not recommended for entrance to Blue Ridge Parkway for large RV's and trucks. Steep/very curvy. - ddtuttle

Stayed here in the hot weeks of July. No amenities at all. Must be self-contained. Campground was easy to get to (right after the elementary school), but if you pass it up, find someplace to turn around right away, as this road eventually leads to the parkway. Going past the RV park, the road is narrow, twisty and dangerous if you are longer than 20' and if you are towing anything. It is about five miles from the major highways. Sites are fair but not large. Grass was not mowed while we were here. Park is clean and sites all medium to large stone. No campfire rings available. Some long-term units but no seasonals. Views are beautiful. As you travel to the campground, Mt Pisgah is straight ahead (hence the name of the road). Many stores within 10 minutes away but nothing close except a gas/convenient store. Nice place to stay to see the beautiful area in and surrounding Asheville. We would stay here again. - twins89

This park is set in a rural area about 10 miles from downtown Asheville. It is one of the least expensive in the area and is convenient to all the sights in the area. It has 6 sites but only 5 have water, sewer, and power. The 6th site just has power. It is about 75' off Hwy 151 and road noise is a bit of a problem, but is mostly local traffic going up and down the road. The sites are gravel and fairly level; we had to add 3" to level out. There are no showers, restrooms, or club house. Satellite reception, but no working cable TV. This is a place to hook up, that is well kept, with clean power and good water. Make sure you call ahead to see if they have room. They only take cash or checks and it's on the honor system. We'd be happy to stay here again. - pumper9x9

This park was a great find for us. The owner is most likely the nicest person we have ever met in all of our travels and we would not hesitate to return to this park. The original RV spots are located next to the creek, however, the owner has expanded the park and has added 4 full hookup sites on the opposite side of the road away from the creek. This was not an issue for us as we were not wanting or anticipating a creekside spot but if this is important to you, I would ask, as most of those sites were occupied by long term campers. The park is gravel, we had to level just slightly but this is not uncommon and does not annoy us. As there are no bathhouses, you must be self contained. Not an issue for us either as we always use our own bathroom anyway. Great water pressure! No AT&T cell service in the valley, however, because the Wi-Fi worked great, I was able to connect my Iphone to Wi-Fi and receive phone calls that way. The closest grocery store is approximately 7 miles away, and downtown Asheville was approx. 20-30 minutes away. Overall, a great spot to relax for 10 days while still being close enough to go explore the surrounding areas. - FueledbyFreedom

As new full-timers, we were so glad to have found this beautiful little park. The owner is so friendly and helpful, which has made our transition to RV living very pleasant. It is very quiet and peaceful here, especially because of the creek and the fact that it borders the National Forest land. Butterflies, hummingbirds, turtles, etc. The trees that were a problem on the road in have now been trimmed by NCDOT. There are no bathrooms/showers. We have had broadband cable and phone hooked up through the cable company, since we are staying for a few months, and use a Verizon "Net Extender" through the cable to give us cell coverage. Otherwise, there is no wifi or cell coverage out here. We can receive mail here. The sites are ample for our big rig, slides and temporary dog fence area. There is even some landscaping between sites to offer more privacy. Very well maintained. - ErikaN

The previous reviews are accurate - this is a nice small park next to a stream that we enjoyed listening to very much. My additional comments are that the interior gravel road was quite out of level, so take it very slow when entering the park. Backing into our site was no problem for our 40' motorhome, with room to spare for the car. But the real issue was that the tree branches on Hwy 151 near the park were now low enough to cause damage to large rigs. The owner was very helpful and sympathetic, and he advised us that he was trying to get them trimmed. However, the fact is that I would hesitate to recommend the park to owners of large rigs with nice paint jobs until this gets resolved. Other than that it was a wonderful place to stay for easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville, if you don't need bath house or laundry room facilities. - LowesTravels
