50 RV Parks near Franklin, North Carolina
Nov 2016 - $30.00
I have been staying at the every year since 1994. The owners are very friendly and helpful to all their guests. Most of the guests that I have met have been very friendly. I feel that the price value is superior to many state parks that I have been to over the years. It is very conveniently located by the main highway but you barely hear the traffic at night. The night-time sounds of insects is very relaxing and there is fog most very morning as even hot days become nice and cool at night. - rockdoctor

Stayed here for the first time for a little over a month. Got a pull through spot. The view into the forest was wonderful compared to many views we have experienced. The location was perfect for our hiking every trail in the Standing Indian area. We would deem this to be the perfect RV park except for the barking dogs across the way. Luckily our RV insulation pretty much blotted out the barking but it really was a nuisance.
The host is wonderful and we even had a cook out sponsored by him with excellent chicken and ribs.
ATT cell service was perfect so we could use our built in hub from our Chevy Silverado to access the internet. There is no way to access satellite service that we could find because of the trees - beautiful but satellite defeating. It mattered not since Mi Mountain provided cable TV and it worked just fine. This is a wonderful little spot in the NC mountains and you won't find a better value in Western NC. - Uphill

Very clean, small, out of the way campground. The rate reflects a weekly rate. Beautifully wooded sites on gravel, are fairly level. I would have rated it 5 star except we had no phone or Internet service with Verizon. Other campers said their AT&T worked well. The office has WiFi. There are nice rocking chairs and a porch swing for use while using the WiFi. They have a laundry with 4 washers (only 2 were working) and 2 dryers. $1.25 for wash and $1 for dry. The laundry and bathrooms were clean and in good repair otherwise. Nice place, quiet and relaxing. Easy in and out. All spaces have a deck, some over look a ravine. - esta34950

Great park. The owners take great pride in their park and keep it immaculately clean and in excellent condition. We had great Wifi and Verizon signal was good. All utilities worked at expected.
If I had a complaint at all, it would be that you must adhere to the rules without any exception or bending. I guess that what makes for a well run park thought, right? We are full timers but lived in Franklin for 20+ years and stored our RV here for over a year before going FT. We then lived in the RV for a week prior to leaving. After 6 months on the road we came back for various appointments, etc. - jomark

Park is very well maintained with paved interior roads and grassy sites. Staff could not have been more helpful. I was parked in the back so the road noise from the adjacent 4 lane highway was not annoying. However, those sites next to the road have a different take on the situation. My water hookup was at ground level thus a pain, electric and sewer were fine. Cable consisted of 4 channels which is enough for me. Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent, so worse than none at all. I don’t have kids and I am in the area to explore, thus I’m gone early and return in time to cook dinner. Posh parks with lots of amenities are wasted on me. This place with its lower cost serves my purpose. If I’m ever back in the area I would try to find something better. - plove

Another great stay at this incredibly scenic park at the foot of The Great Smoky Mts. Very close to The Appalachian Trail and The Nantahala National Forest. Lots to do and see in this area. We have been coming to this Park and area for ten years and still haven't seen it all. Hope I can come for many more, and stay here. Owner/Operators are great and we always enjoy our stay. - NEEP46

Very well kept park in the woods. We had a large level spot. Phone and wifi were pretty much non existent but you are in the mountains so prepare before you get there. T-mobile seemed to work better than Verizon. Pool was nice and clean and they were very accommodating with our visitors. Roads to the park are narrow but we negotiated fine in a 41 ft fifth wheel. Plenty of room for our tow vehicle and our guests van at our site. There is no laundry facility even though it says there is. - Wendyandwoo

This is a very nice campground with big shady sites, tables, fire rings, clean bath house, cabins, store, pond, new pool, wifi, cell phone service. The new owners are very nice and helpful. And one of the best gem mines is within walking distance. - Marty Martinez

The owner manages the park and is a very helpful, nice person. Small park all sites are backin along a creek, very pretty. The road and sites were crushed gravel. There is a laundry just up the road. Would come back again! - 2hapicampers

Rate reflects monthly rate of $385. This is a small, fantastic rv park in Franklin that is only about 3 miles from the bypass on Hwy 64. This means you're really close to Walmart, two grocery stores and several restaurants. The owner is extremely nice and accommodating. Since the park has only 13 sites, they book up way in advance. Most of the folks there come back year after year and know each other well. They even have a daily happy hour in the gazebo. I highly recommend this park. - golfkitty
May 2015 - $30.00
All sites are full hook up with 30/50 amp. WiFi and cable (minimal) are provided. Satellite tv friendly. On HWY 64 but before the road becomes mountainous. Very friendly, clean park. No entertainment amenities like swimming pools, etc. but all sites back up to the river where you can fish for trout. Guests frequent the Gazebo daily for "happy hour". - edwilson

This camp ground is very close to my home, but we make it a point to camp there at least once a year sometimes more. It was one of our favorite campgrounds years ago when our kids were small. They enjoyed wading in the river, roller skating, and looking for rubies in the stream, and riding bikes. Our oldest first rode his bike there for the first time. My wife and I love to go back now to relive fond old memories. The store is staffed regularly and offers basic supplies you may have forgotten at home. Restrooms are always clean as are the showers. I've never seen them in need of attention. It can get cool up there even in the summer following a rain shower, especially at night. Generators are handy, no hook ups. Water is available on each loop from spigots, but is not available at the site. Great value, great scenery, and the people are usually very friendly. Can't recommend it enough. - Rodmaker15

Drop dead gorgeous park! Right on the Appalachian Trail. Waterfalls, rivers, great fall color. No electric at sites; No water at sites. In the cool fall weather (dipping into the upper 20's) a generator is a must (which we didn't have). So, we had to pack it up and go to a lower elevation. Would be a wonderful 14 day stay with a generator. Seems like many sites would handle a large motor coach. Sites are level and have gravel and black top. Water can be obtained easily from the many spigots that are threaded. - JohnandDeb

Wow, what a surprise! Very nice, quiet campground in the Nantahala National Forest. No frills, just quiet and peaceful. Five loops, each has a campground host. Beware of the recreation.gov website, however. I originally booked a site in loop 5 which obviously couldn't accommodate a 29' travel trailer. Reservationist told me it should accommodate a rig up to 55'. No way, the site may have handled a small pop up. Had to cancel and lost a $20.00 cancellation fee (that fight isn't over yet). Anyway, very nice campground. Will be back. - rcknrbn

We stayed a week in spot 27. The site was gravel and fairly level and long enough for the coach and the car if we parked sideways. Cable worked, 48 channels. WiFi is advertised at 50mps, we got 2mps the whole week. No verizon signal for the jetpak and the phone was spotty. Road noise was terrible. They offered to move us but with the rain, didn't feel like moving. With the windows closed and the a/c running it wasn't bad. rates. The site had a slope so you we going down hill if you sat outside. The sites had some space between each other but we didn't have anyone next to us but they looked close. All back in sites. They did assist in parking. The sites are on the side of a hill so they are at different levels. Franklin was a nice area but we are not planning on going back. - tlrpilot

This is a lovely campground in a mountain setting. Hookups were very good. Cable was less than perfect but WIFI worked pretty well. The owners were super friendly & helpful. If you reserve a site, the specific site is not guaranteed. Our Verizon service was spotty. Highway noise is very noticeable at the sites at the south end of the campground. The restroom and laundry areas were spotless. They will bring a fire-ring to your site. We liked it and would stay again. - R&S

Gravel, back-in sites. Some difficulty leveling rig. No shade. Park is very clean and well equipped. Nice pool. Park has been one of my favorites and I come here every year, however, the park is under new management (10 months ago) with a whole lot of new rules and the owner has a bit of an attitude. I see a lot of reviews about the good wifi and the owner made a point of telling me it was "the best" (and it always has been in the past), however, of the four nights I stayed, I was only able to retrieve emails once. I was constantly getting kicked off, or just not connecting. Being that the campground is a bit remote (not right in town), 4G wasn't much of an option. The owner has a lot to learn about customer service and how to make customers feel welcome. Not sure if I will return as there are a lot of campgrounds in the area. Park use to be a 10 but with new ownership - now I give it an 8. - pattieatte

The rate reflects a weekly rate. This is one of our favorite parks. We have been coming here twice a year for the last couple of years. The sites are level with gravel spots and roads. There are some sites along the creek. The laundry is clean. All the seasonal people are very friendly. We will return. - esta34950

Level sites, gravel roads and sites. Very quiet campground with lots of things to do. The permanent people are very friendly and invited us to join them in all their activities. Sites available along the river. - esta34950

We stayed here because it was the closest available to Highlands where we were visiting family.
We asked for a spot along the river which we got (#45) but there was no shade. Also the river was underwhelming. Small, slow moving. There were other sites with much better shade and if we had to do it over again, we would have asked for a spot with the most shade vs. a spot along the river. Wi-Fi worked well as did our phone (AT&T).
There were a lot of long-timers there. It seemed a fair number were there for longer than just the season. Everyone was friendly and we felt safe. Mostly older people. Fairly crowded. They had a schedule of events including bingo, cards, church, etc. We didn't attend any but I thought it was a nice touch. They had a large group room and there were usually older people in there playing cards.
One down side was that it was hard to find someone in the office. It wasn't consistently open during business hours which was frustrating. They did have a nice selection of movies (no charge) which was a bonus. However there was no drop-off box or slot to put the movies in and we didn't want to call the emergency number because it clearly wasn't an emergency.
The bathrooms and showers were impressively clean.
Overall, this was a convenient stop, but next time we'd try something else. If you want to hang out with a pleasant group of older people that like to play cards, bingo, etc. it might be for you. - GearDown

Cardinal Ridge is like camping at a good friend's home. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. Your name is on a board welcoming you, and the better half is there with a huge smile and a warm hug. We were luckily gifted some eggs from their chickens :) This is an adult only park which is a plus in our book. It is a small campground with 8 sites, 4 on the lower level and 4 on the higher level. There are two short, steep grades to get to upper level. We got stuck going up the second one and had to back down and try again. Good advice- get up a good head of speed and go for it! It would be nice if the steep part of the road were paved. The interior roads are gravel, and the sites are gravel/grass. The upper sites have a lots of separation and amazing mountain views. The lower sites are closer together and still have good views. Some of the sites on the lower level would require running the utilities under a motorhome to get the best view. WII FI was slow but Verizon had good coverage so we used our hotspot. Directv satellite worked fine. Water pressure was low around 30 so we used the water pump to shower, do laundry, etc. Oddly, you can hear some traffic noise from 441. Mostly a background droning with the occasional semi. (I have dog whistle ears so it may not even be noticeable to some people.) It is quiet at night though and very dark! We will definitely return. - Free

More than a campground, this is an adult "retreat"! A small campground carved into a hillside with site vistas that are spectacular. The hosts are RV'ers and their approach to running this camp definitely comes from their experiences. Warm, welcoming and attentive they make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive and see your name on their chalk board. You'll get escorted to your site, set-up and before you know it the owner is there to give you a tour of their breathtaking property. Full service site (30 amp) offered privacy, peace and quiet. We had WiFi and over the air TV at certain times of the day. They have a deer refuge, do a nightly feeding and have geese and chickens. No pool or playground here but that's exactly the way this place is meant to be. Serenity now. - Breezy2

Beautiful views from our unit. Very private, very quiet, very clean, pet friendly. Lots of deer, turkeys and even ducks to view. Close to everything. Wonderful hosts, I think my husband and I made new friends. We will definitely return as often as we can. Can't say enough good things about our stay. - Yancey
Aug 2017 - $30.00
Too many trashy permanent sites. Owners friendly enough but short timers made to feel unwelcome by permanent tenants. Owner appears to be intimidated by permanents and stays out of any disputes. Felt undercurrent of malcontent in park. Will not revisit. - Cat Woods

We stayed for 4 nights (while attending the Franklin Gem and Mineral Show), only one of which was under Passport America. Level sites near a creek. Owners very friendly. Wifi worked well. No satellite or cable. Electric was good and water pressure fine. No trouble with the sewer. Pretty basic but a nice quiet, peaceful campground. - tnhall

Enjoyed our stay so much. Owners were busy making everything look beautiful for the season. It was so peaceful and quiet. We will be back for sure when we are in the area. - Happy campers 5

My first impression was to hang a 1 star rating on this campground and pack up and leave. After some thought however I thought it best to be objective so other campers could get a clear unbiased review of this campground. The experience started when we arrived to find that the pull thru site we had reserved was not available and we had to take a back in site. The roads were very narrow with tight turns. About 50% of the roads were paved....the rest were gravel as were the sites. 90 to 95% of the sites in here were seasonal. I saw only about 8 sites for daily/weekly campers. While pull thru sites are advertised there are only 4 in the entire place. Both electric and water were not controlled from our site but the site next door. It took a good 15 mins. of troubleshooting when we set up to figure this out. My observation was that the seasonal people pay the bills and transients are not a priority. There was no water in the bathrooms/showers/laundry for the first 2 days we were there. While their websites shows mountain vista views, our view was of a church parking lot and a large propane tank. There was moderate noise from the highway in front of the park.
On the positive side, the manager/owner was very nice and tried to be helpful. The seasonal residents were also very nice, quiet and willing to share local knowledge.
The sites were mostly shaded. The price was reasonable. - TLL

Manager was very nice and helpful. This is a lovely area and park. Most of the sites are seasonal rentals so it is best to call ahead to make sure there is one available. Our site was difficult to get into and very close to other sites but manager helped. Some sites have lots of shade/trees; others have mix of shade and sun. Our site was too tight to have a campfire; picnic table was small and could only seat two adults. - SDeasy

Staff and campers were very friendly. Pull-thru site was quite long. Be careful when making turns in campground. Some are very tight and must be taken as wide as possible, especially if you're in a longer motorhome. Best to have someone outside to guide you through the turns. Some of the trees could have been better trimmed. - TGOHal
