Older campground that could use some updating. Very busy with in and outs - close to multiple highways and the Biltmore Mansion. Paved pad sites. No fire ring. Bath houses are GI showers - not impressed. Has a pool to enjoy. Good cable channels. Wi-Fi was okay. If traveling through, it is a good stop over for a couple of days. - MAVetter

Good site for visiting Asheville, but not for camping. Very tight. One neighbor's hookups were under my awning, the other's picnic table was only a few feet outside my bedroom window. WiFi was very weak, could not even open photos on Facebooks at times. The staff was very friendly, but could not reach them by phone when someone locked the ladies restroom early one morning. Restrooms/showers were clean but needed a face lift. - Threepdr

This is a nice place to stay if you want to tour Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. Some of the spots are very tight, but others have more space. What you can't see from the campground map is how very steep the area is, so that a campsite that looks like it directly behind you may be a fifty feet higher or lower. You may or may not end up with a nice view, depending upon the slope. The biggest attraction is the proximity to Biltmore, the Farmers Market, the North Carolina Arboretum, and other area sights. If you buy tickets for Biltmore, you get a two-day pass at the price of a one-day pass. So, you can spend one day touring the house and formal gardens and a second day exploring some of the 8,000 acres of the estate. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend to others. (The laundry rooms were very small and could only handle a tiny amount of laundry, so we took ours to a laundromat in town.) - JBick

Beautiful rv park that offers stunning views and in close proximity of all that Asheville offers. This relatively small campground classifies its sites as either premium or deluxe. The deluxe sites offer shaded sites with filtered views of the French broad River valley and distant mountains. The premium sites have tremendous, unobstructed views of the river and mountains but are not very shaded. Both types are full hookup. The gravel road up to the campground is a little narrow and a little steep in spots but I had no issue pulling our 31 foot travel trailer up or down. The sites are all fairly level and have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground also has some decent trails to explore. - Denver James

This park is absolutely gorgeous! It is quiet and peaceful. The sites are huge and far apart. They are slanted in such a way that they give you maximum privacy. The premium sites have a gorgeous view of the valley and mountains. And, if you have a regular site in the trees, they have a nice viewing area with benches where you can relax and watch the sun set. The bathrooms were individual bathrooms with a toilet and shower in each. The tent sites were secluded and in the trees. There are not a lot of kids screaming and running around like at a KOA because there is not a lot of kid things to do but this makes it perfect for people like my husband and I who want the peace and quiet to enjoy nature. The only problem with this campground is that it is up a mountain and maneuvering a big rig can be difficult at times. There is about a 1/2 mile curvy, bumpy, narrow, gravel road leading into the campground and backing into a few of the sites was pretty tight. If you have a big rig (especially a fifth wheel), I would avoid spots P8 and D9-13. We had site P8 and, although it was (in my opinion) the best site in the park, parking was extremely difficult due to the narrow road with a drop off on the far side. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of big rigs up there. Just be aware that that maneuvering can be tight. This is not the place to be if you are not confident of you RV driving skills. Other than the roads, this park is my ideal RV park and I highly recommend it. - AgilityCardiMom

A beautiful park with a beautiful view of the mountains and river below. Happily we did not have to go up the hill in a big rig, but no problem with our travel trailer. We could have used an extra 5 feet of sewer hose to permit us to fit the site better but we were OK with that. We would definitely stay here again. - 1coloradan

Smaller, older park, but had all the basics covered, except laundry facilities. Wifi worked prettying good. Owner was very friendly and helped out with activities in the area. Sites were a little close, but we were gone during the day, so it was okay. This park is not a vacation destination but it worked out well for seeing the sites of Asheville. - Sally Chew

Older park with tighter turns and you are close to one another. However as a base for the Blue Ridge Parkway it is excellent. WE had a pull through and 50 amp service. There is cable. - rolling homeless

$250/wk. Pad sites are split concrete with gravel in middle. Tow car must be parked perpendicular at front, 1/2 on drive. Drives are all gravel and adequate width. Concrete patio w/table. Sites are very close & driver's side too close to pedestal to open one storage bay on the slide. Owner very friendly & helpful. WiFi was good but must login again each time laptop is closed. DISH satellite SD reception good but no HD for locals (out of Greenville SC)--probably a DISH issue. Easy to miss entry beside Mobil gas station, so watch closely for it. Surrounded by trees, few inside.
This is a convenience park, virtually inside the city, not a destination. No pool or stuff for kids. - ragtop45

The reason for low score is because they do not have it on their website or in their rules that you are not allowed in the creek. We found out when we were setting up. If we had known that, we would have chosen one of the many other campgrounds nearby. Also, their website and brochure shows they have wifi, but they do not. Many campers complained about both of those. The campground is nice but not big rig friendly, and sites are really close. The owner is annoying but the camp hosts are great. If you are looking for somewhere to just sit in your camper, this place will be fine. - fireboy7

We stayed over Memorial Day Weekend in Site 7. The arrival was good and although some said (in other reviews) the staff member was hard to deal with, he gave the best directions for backing into the site we have ever had. Us and several others. If you do what he says it is smooth and easy. If you don't it took a while. (We watched this once.) He had a very dry sense of humor and was picking on me saying things like we are going to take you right over the boulder scrape a little metal and end up right over the creek. LOL.
The creek was lovely and the sites were clean. One minus for being close together although not as close as we have been at other campgrounds.
As others have said the bathrooms are VERY nice. Clean and modern.
Campers were nice although due to it being a holiday weekend I think there was some sort of music war going on between several campsites. Also our neighbors had a very late night apparently funny conversation with some other campers on the first night at their campfire which carries to our window. This is however NOT the campground's fault. :-)
Very dog friendly although no off leash dog area. I think almost all campsites had some sort of fur baby.
Small shop for essentials. Firewood for sale.
All in all we will probably be back sometime in the not too distant future. - MissAlaineous

Very picturesque wooded setting. Not for bigger rigs (we are 30'). Friendly, clean, well maintained, good camp store. Near Hwy 74, but not super convenient. - VATom

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

Pad site was unlevel, had to do a major adjust side to side. Dump station is located and installed backwards going the wrong way on road. No gravel but mud beside the station and the water connection to backwash the black tank had a nozzle that matched or hooked up to nothing. - MichaelRay

The office staff was so friendly and helpful that I hate to give a bad review but this was possibly the worst campground we have ever been in. It is right next to the interstate and is, by far, the noisiest we have ever stayed in and we've stayed at many campgrounds near busy interstates. The interior roads are not really big rig friendly but they are doable. However, when exiting, RVs have to go both ways and there isn't room to pass so you have to hope you're the only exiting at that time. Sites are gravel and dirt, a bit messy when it rains. One tree at our site needed trimming. We would have had to back out of the site so we wouldn't scratch the side and top of the rig. Fortunately, The rig across from us pulled out and we were able to pull through that site, then make the tight exit turn. We will not return. - dickens

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

Stayed three nights and rested well each night as everyone seemed to adhere to the quiet time guidelines. Restrooms were a little dated but clean and orderly. Originally, reservations were screwed up at least three times by office personnel who either lacked sufficient training or just were careless. The office managers finally straightened everything up and check in went smooth, just be sure to request a confirmation email and a follow up verbal confirmation several days prior to arrival. Cell service is very weak here, best of luck with calls. Wi Fi was a joke, never connected in the three days here. Excuse was it was just overloaded. Newsflash...maybe its time to upgrade the service, if you advertise WiFi it should be expected to work. We, never the less, had fun in the Cherokee area and met many "interesting" fellow campers. We will return again in the future. - Dickmann05

We were there through Memorial Day weekend and on through the bluegrass festival, the following weekend. We have been there for many years and it's one of our favourite places to go. Even though the wifi is non existent on busy weeks and the cable is just fair on the best days. The management and 'some' of the workers need some hospitality training, some not friendly at all. One worker who was living near some friends who were playing music on Saturday night of the festival, angrily approached them and cursed them for playing music. The event escalated and he threatened to pull the power plug to their camper. Very unprofessional! My friends will not be back. Most irritating is their reservation policy, they do not allow you a grace period to reserve your same site from year to year. In other words your site can be taken from you. - 5thwheel1949

The "manager" lied to me and others, stating that a festival promoter was responsible for disallowing year-over-year customers from camping near friends. He cursed at me when his lie was exposed. This arbitrary and unreasonable policy (not practiced by any other festival camp ground we attend) ruins the event, so we will not be returning. We will not be returning while this "management" is in place.
The sites were somewhat cramped. Full hookups are not available in all sites. Navigation roads are narrow but passable. Bath house facilities are some of the cleanest we have found. The convenience store has basic camping supplies and snack food. However, all of these positives are negated by the disrespectful attitude of the "managers". - User1917

We love this place!! As we were traveling around visiting several locations in NC and TN we didn't bring our RV this time. We rented a cabin, #49 which is a pet friendly cabin that sleeps 4. We did not have a pet but it was so clean, we could not tell there had been any pets staying prior to our visit. Cool, shaded, great little campground. Staff very friendly. - Jerrilyn

Indian Creek was a bit of a drive but well worth it. Bath house appeared to be cleaned multiple times each day. Sites were gravel and level and all utilities worked as expected with the exception of a very weak WiFi signal. Compared with other private campgrounds sites were nicely spaced. - Dave F

Pretty little campground. Nicest site are on the creek. FHU sites aren't on the creek. Owners very nice and very helpful. If you need internet or cell phone reception look elsewhere. There is absolutely no cell phone reception. The internet service provided by the campground was spotty at best. Often it was completely unavailable. sometimes you could get your email very slow but forget about going to any other internet sites. - Mushmouth
Oct 2015 - $51.00
Beautiful setting, adequate space for our 36ft 5th. Long winding paved road to campsite. Friendly staff. No Cell service. Not the fault of the campsite. Good cable. Satellite not an option because of trees.
My main problem was lack of WiFi. Being full timers we depend on internet. When the park was empty, WiFi was horrible. When the park was full it was non existent. - roybrody

The staff here were very very friendly although check in was slow. We had read internet was slow so asked for a site closest to the internet hot spot and we had very good WiFi where we were placed. Restrooms were generally very clean. Stayed here for 2 nights and there was enough to keep the three kids happy. Color a t-shirt for $8.50, movies each night, candy bingo, pedal karts to hire. Right near very pretty river. Just don't bother walking the Mango Falls track. Bugs, bad trail so could twist ankle, unsafe area to walk through in one patch, nothing to see when you get there. I'd stay again especially with a Passport America discount. - kiwitravelers

Getting to, and into this park is a challenge. Big Cove rd is narrow & in bad shape in places with the road bank falling into the river in several locations. The road into the park has those suspension shattering high plastic speed bumps. I wouldn't take my camper in there again even if the camping was free. - Thorfinn

We're here for a month which is reflected by the monthly rate. Park workers do not have the skills necessary to manage this park!!! We had to move our car numerous time at all hours, to let their team guide visitors into the sites next to us. Park workers were not too good at providing directions. It is a real comedy watching the park workers provide assistance to other campers, as long as it is not next to your site. - David & Lynda

We stayed one night, coming back from Myrtle Beach to Kentucky. The Bathroom/Shower House was very clean and modern. Laundry machines were convenient. The campground is located near I-26 near Asheville. The site are close together and most of the sites are completely graveled. - BJackson

We had a large paved pull-through site (13) near the lake. It was extremely convenient, but had no shade and was not very private. When the back-in sites along the lake were occupied, it blocked our view. Fletcher is a great location, right in between Asheville and Hendersonville, and the park is easy to reach. The staff was friendly; they even help you park! The owners do a great job landscaping the sites, and even though they are adding new ones, noise was never a problem. The pool was inviting; restrooms were modern and clean. We will definitely return, but next time we'd request one of the gravel sites in the back where there's more shade and privacy. - Lyn T
