Nice gated campground that was very convenient to Asheville and the surrounding area. Short drive from I-26. I-26 between Exits 37 and 40 is a bit rough. Also a large pothole on Rutledge Road traveling South on the right hand side about 1/8 mile off Airport Rd. Unlike other reviews, we had no problem finding the park. Initially assigned site 47 which backed up to the playground. We asked to be reassigned before setting up and was to site 54. Site was mostly level, slightly high on the drivers side but within capabilities of stabilizing jacks. Utilities are placed on the drivers side but are only about 10 feet back from the road. We had to pull up just a little to get everything hooked up as our water, electric and cable plugs are all in the back. Camp store has a few items including ice and propane. Other reviews spoke of poor picture quality on cable. Ours was just fine. Also, some reviews were negative for their Wi-Fi. We noticed that there is a secure, password required, server and an open server. Use the password protected server and you shouldn't have any problems. Use the open server and you'll get nothing accomplished. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Restaurants and Wal-Mart real close. Outlet mall just up the road a bit and then everything that Asheville has to offer all within 20 minute drive. Watch the traffic at the 26/40 interchange. Always seemed to be slow getting through there.

Rutledge is far enough away from I-26 that I didn't hear any traffic noise, but you do get some airplane noise from the Asheville airport. Staff was pleasant. Main interior road is easy for big rig to navigate. I'm glad that I had one of the few pull through sites because many of the back-in sites would have been difficult to get into. The utilities were okay, but not great. The water pressure was good. The sewage connection was below ground level. I hate that. The cable TV was grainy on all channels. Wifi is not great, but usable. They really missed the boat on what they call lake front sites. Those sites are all back-in. It would have been more attractive if those sites were pull in; however, the "lake" is really nothing more than a muddy pond so maybe that's why they went the way they did. The sites are close together with no vegetation between them for privacy. I would stay again, but it isn't what I would be looking at as a destination. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Warning to all Future Campers: Google Maps tries to take you to the back entrance of the park where you will be treed. We did use the address 125 Jillian Trail as another reviewer recommended, but we still ended up stuck next to a covered bridge and had to back up and turn around (not easy when pulling a 38-foot trailer). If the road sign at the turn says "Still Pond," DON'T DO IT! Drive just a little further, and you'll see the correct entrance to the park. We arrived later than 9 pm, and didn't realize that would be a problem. The manager/owner got up out of bed, let us in, and parked us. He was gracious, and I thank him, but do try to arrive before 9 pm. Our site was tight with lots of rigs parked pretty closely together. It wasn't easy to back in, but it was doable. Our site had a nice picnic table and fire ring. The WiFi was unusable. I couldn't connect at all, and my husband found it to be so slow that he switched back to mobile data. The campground was fine for our purposes. It's well maintained, the neighbors were quiet, and it's a pleasant place with a great game room. Hotels and RV spaces are surprisingly scarce and expensive in the Asheville area. Even with the Good Sam rate, it was pricey compared to other cities. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overnight stay, convenient to interstate. Gated so you're given a key pass (like a credit card) to enter. Our site was a long site, level with several blocks under the jacks. We had to share water with the next site, so extremely low water pressure. When we pulled into our site (60) there was no one in the site in front of (52) so we would have had no problems getting out, but someone came in so we actually had to back our fifth wheel out of the pull through site because the roads are so tight and everyone was parked in the road. We left early, before the office opened, and there is no drop area for the gate card. I put the card in an envelope with our site number on it under the door, but still received an email telling me to return the card. Not sure we'd stay here again, especially since it was so expensive. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a site right on the retention pond. It is a back in site, I wanted to pull in as we have a motorhome. I was told I could not do that. But I did. This appears to be an older park, all of the lake view sites are back in, not drive in. So obviously geared up for trailers and fifth wheels. It is handy to Walmart and other services.

First of all, if you go to this park, use 125 Jillian Trail for the address instead of 170 Rutledge Rd. After getting the confirmation email with the Jillian Trail address on it, I called the office to double check on the GPS address to use. The gal said to try the Rutledge Road address. Don't do it. That is a dead end street on the other side of the campground. Also, if you get site 11, you should park as close to the cement patio as you can or your tires will be off the ground on one side after you get leveled. The gentleman who parked us failed to make the recommendation. The name of the park would lead you to believe you are on Rutledge Lake, if there is such a lake. However, the lakefront sites you pay extra for are actually on a little retention pond. The laundry room was nice, with several washers and dryers that worked well. The store is well stocked. We were close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and less than 30 minutes from Asheville. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were assigned a site too small for our 33-ft fifth wheel. The sites were so small and close I have NO idea why people stay here. We left. Even if we could maneuver on the narrow roads, there would have been no place for our truck. Campers even left their truck/cars in the roads, to prevent maneuvering our vehicles.

Stayed 3 nights while visiting friends in Asheville area. Campground is a little off the beaten track but not difficult to find. Sites are a little close but better than a KOA. Site 60 (our site) is set as end-to-end back-ins but is managed as a single pull-through. Everything was well-kept and maintenance staff passed frequently. We were escorted to our site. One oddity - visitors are said to be charged $3 per day to enter the gated entrance, but our two visitors were admitted without charge. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have commented, Biltmore Estates are the big attraction. The house was interesting but grounds were more enjoyable. There is a local arboretum, just off I26, which has lovely hiking trails.

We stayed for 2 months and it was, overall, a satisfactory experience. Our back-in site was next to the pool, but was surprisingly quiet. Congestion on the roadway, though, was chronic. Nearly everyone on our row had 2 vehicles in addition to an RV, so cars and trucks were parked all along the edge of the passageway. Sites were just long enough for a 40' rig, but wide enough for vehicles to park. Power in the campground was low voltage at peak heat in August and tripped once. Sewer connection was at the rear of the site instead of near the center with the water and electric connections. Park is conveniently located to services in Fletcher and easy access to Hendersonville and Asheville. Staff was very accommodating in putting us in a site facing north with no tree interference for our TV satellite. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Blue Ridge Parkway not far. Sierra Nevada Brewery nearby with excellent tours and restaurant. If you like raw oysters, the Surf and Brew restaurant is close by. Lots in area cities, but one favorite is the Pinball Museum in Asheville along with a multitude of breweries.

Very nice RV Park. Stayed with a 38' MH pulling a 29 ' trailer and had no problems with road going to park or dip in drive as described by another user. Stayed in pull through along side a small creek. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Decent park. A few pull-thru's but mostly back-in's. Full HU with 50 amp. Gravel sites are somewhat level. Very good Wifi! Pool. Small catch & release pond. Some RV sites have view of pond. Internal roads are OK for big rigs, but not excessive. Some have low trees. Fairly close to neighbors but enough room for slides. Security gate at night requires entrance card (which they give and which must be returned). Quiet. Seemed expensive for what is offered. Can buy Biltmore Estate tickets at RV park. Might stay here again; it's OK, but probably would look for something less expensive. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Biltmore Estate and Gardens - fabulous! Basilica of Saint Lawrence is beautiful. Sierra Nevada Brewing is great as is New Belgium Brewing (Sierra Nevada is better, and offers food, if you have time for only 1); both are large craft brewing companies that have tours.

The road to the park has an extremely sharp turn so much so that there is a warning light. Also the drive into the park has a deep dip that is not marked so go slowly. Park is clean as are bathroom, laundry and clubhouse. However, the clubhouse is in need of updating and the laundry had only 4 washers and 2 dryers working. Totally inadequate for this size park and nightly rate. I had to bring my clothes back and hang them inside to dry. Main drive that circles through the campground is paved but side roads and sites are all gravel with little to no grass. There are some sites that can handle a big rig however make sure you are put into the correct size site. The staff does not seem to have a good idea of the length of each site. I was told my site would fit up to 50 feet however there's no way anyone much larger than my 28' rig could've gotten in here. There is cable but most channels are very fuzzy. This is probably fine for an overnight stay or a day or two. However I would not stay here again due to the cable issues and the terrible laundry conditions. I think this park is overpriced for what you get. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

We wanted a campground convenient to Asheville. This one certainly is. 15 minutes to downtown. 15 minutes to Hendersonville, a family friendly walking town with lots of shops. 25 minutes to the waterfalls in DuPont Forest. This is good base area. The campground is meticulously clean. They had a guide take me to our site to plan the approach before I towed in. Nice service. Our site was well shaded but not all are. They have a nice playground and a heated pool. The lake is small and very pretty but we had no luck fishing in it. It is a catch and release lake. It needs a restocking in my opinion. You will be near your neighbors in the sites as they are the usual size of most RV parks. All surfaces are graveled. There is no grass. There is good water pressure. If you want to back up to the lake you will have no shade on your site. I would stay again. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

RV park well maintained. Staff was friendly. Other camping guests were friendly and we had a great time talking with them. Many sites appear to be residents, but not an issue, as they were nice folks. Lake sites are tight. Campground is all gravel though wasn't an issue, as no dust problem. Some sites are not level and are lower in the front, so bring boards if you don't want your front MH wheels off the ground after you put your levelers down. Nice pool and laundry room and clean large restrooms. Club house could be better used and attention given to the equipment for pool and ping pong games. Need more dumpsters, as only saw one, which was full by Monday morning, in the park. They seem to be in the process of making improvements to the playground and lake area, as there were mounds of sand dumped and sitting there. Unfortunately there were no group activities planned during our stay. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.
