Nov 2015 - $40.00
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

We stayed in the full hook up part of the park which are all pull-throughs. Our site's electric box was a little low to the ground. Water pressure was good. The CATV box is located low on a post with the hook-up on the bottom which is a little hard to get to. The staff and check in were excellent. The exit is a little tricky if someone else is coming the other way. The CATV is a little limited for the price. When busy parking can be a problem. Still probably the best in the area. - usa rv12344848

This was our first time at this KOA. Our spot was a pull-through with good 50 amp electric/sewer/water. The trees are a little low at some places but we are tall at 13.4. The driveway is steep, paved and the office staff were very nice. The park and sites are gravel. There is some traffic noise from I-40 but the location is convenient to Asheville (Biltmore Estate, Downtown) which is about 14 miles away. You must be careful exiting the park as it's on a blind curve. I had my co-pilot go out and check for cars and warn them that were pulling out if needed (no cars came by). We would certainly stay at this park again. - MarkG.

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

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stony Fork Creek. This six site RV park is nestled in the mountains of the Pisgah National Forest. It sits just off Hwy 151, Pisgah Highway, a lightly traveled scenic road that connects the town of Candler with the Blue Ridge Parkway. A stream borders the back of all sites. All sites are full hookup with 50 amp service. There's sufficient room between sites that you're not crowded. There are no additional amenities offered, but we're self-contained in our 38' motorhome, so don't need a bath house, and the drive to the nearest laundromat is a pretty one. The owner was exceptional - friendly and helpful. There are an abundance of sightseeing and hiking opportunities, some within walking distance, but most a short drive. We will make a point of staying here again, hopefully next fall when colors are again at their peak. One important note: Hwy 151 beyond this campground is not suitable for big rigs - too steep and very tight turns. Hwy 151 leading from Candler to the campground is nice, with the last mile or so narrowing but still suitable for big rigs. - USA-RVNomads
