A small, quiet park in a wooded area. Park is a short drive down a gravel road...so no road noise. Nice grounds with nicely mown grass, flowers, a small pond. No swimming pool, but pond has one rental paddle boat and a small, but uninviting looking, swimming area. Horseshoes adjacent to pond. Park your RV on gravel, step out onto a concrete pad with picnic table. Some shaded sites. No office; park managers live in a travel trailer. Clean, basic, pleasant restrooms, showers and laundry room. If you are looking for an RV Park with lots of services...this isn't it. It's best for those who prefer a small, quiet RV Park with nice grounds. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Burnshirt Vinyard is across street from RV Park, awarded Best Winery in North Carolina recently. Close to multiple apple farms. Handersonville has a very nice walkable historic downtown.

We stayed in this terrific little RV park a month during the summer of 2016. It has just a couple of dozen sites for RVs & tents, with plenty of space between adjacent sites. The interior roads are gravel and narrow, but well maintained. The sites are 'natural' meaning they have not been graded, but they were sited so that most RVs can be leveled without too much difficulty. The park is owned by the family that founded it in the days after WWII. Overseen by a pair of very friendly and kind sisters, and it is managed by workampers, a couple who went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable. The park lacks up-to-date recreational facilities and the cabin part of it has a run-down look to it. However, the grounds are very well maintained and nicely landscaped. The park has no cable TV, but there are some 20 broadcast channels available. The camp WiFi signal is fairly strong, the bandwidth generally allows good connections to the internet, with occasional problems during peak times of the day. Cellular service for both T-Mobile and AT&T were adequate for alternative hot-spot coverage. Overall, we really enjoyed our time here, and will look forward to returning in the future. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very small park with no pool or recreational facilities. However, for our purposes of meeting with friends in the area, it was perfect. The only drawbacks were an extremely tight entrance/exit onto a one lane driveway. We had the camp host go out on the road to keep the driveway clear when we left. There is no wifi but we brought our own. We will use this park again when in the area. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quiet, lots of trees in wooded area, close to Hendersonville but out in the countryside, picnic table. They had nice stone driveways.

Poor WiFi, only cash or checks, small park limited pull through spaces, some sites very close quarters, inconvenient sewer hook-ups, laundry room very rustic - no table, no coin machines, no soap dispenser, many permanent residents, open seasonally, some tent camping.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and it worked for a fall get-a-way but the park itself was just okay because of the location and price. You get what you pay for. We didn't use the showers or restrooms but the building and grounds were maintained and not run down. Campground hosts were friendly and pleasant. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hendersonville is very close with an Ingles food store which was great and close by plus a charming downtown area. Lots of wineries, farmers market, orchards, near Ashville, Flat Rock (Think Carl Sandburg's home), small playhouse in Flat Rock, Hendersonville and nearby Brevard. Fantastic drives and waterfalls, great area to tour, especially in the fall.

We were pleasantly surprised about this park. We actually extended our stay while there. The hosts are fabulous. He was so full of information not only about the local area, but he has been RVing so long, he could tell you about just about any park and attraction in the USA. And you will love their dog Dutchess. Site was level and easy in/out and the park is quiet and secluded. The lake was very low but they say they are working on fixing the dam. If it was not raining the whole time we were there, it would have been a perfect place to spend more time. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

St. Pauls Vineyard and Burntshirt Vineyards are within a few minutes of the park - one you could even walk to if you wanted to. Apples are a big thing in Hendersonville so stop by some orchards. Several waterfalls and the Blue Ridge Parkway are nearby.

Moose Cafe. This is down home cooking. And if you leave hungry, it is your own fault. The portions are huge.

We stayed at Red Gate for a month while looking for property to purchase. The manager/owner was the sweetest lady. It's a no-frills campground, but clean and tidy. Most spots are shaded by large trees. Plus they recycle. Great location across from a winery and minutes from downtown Hendersonville with cute shops and cafes. Around 20 minutes to Chimney Rock. We plan to come back here and stay. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed at this campground one night, and it was one very long night. This campground is nothing like the website depicts! It is occupied mostly by long term residents that have been there for quite sometime. The owner was very nice. The facilities were scary., not kept up and in disrepair. The pond appears to be very dirty and not kept up at all. Wasn't a quiet, serene place in our opinion. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Red Gates RV Park and Campground was so relaxing and beautiful. They have a large lake and we took one of the boats (they provided) out on the lake to do some fishing. It was wonderful. They have a shuffle board court and other fun things to do. The owners are super friendly and even had a big 4th of July cookout for everyone at the park. I was so surprised. The bathrooms are always clean. There is a laundry facility on site as well as lending library for games. We were only here for the weekend but will definitely return for a more lengthy stay now that we discovered this gem. If you want to visit Western North Carolina, this is the place to stay. If I could add one thing I think it would be a walking trail in the woods around the property. That would have made it perfect. I walked my dogs on the road through the property, but I'm a hiker and could have used more trails (of course, there are plenty of hiking trails I discovered around the area!) We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

I was a bit suspicious that this is not listed in any big guide and then that were no reviews listed in two years, but went ahead to give it a try. Yes, probably over half of the sites are permanent or used on weekends with the rigs stored on the site. The "pond" and "beach" are not useable. We had the last empty site, and while very large, it was tight getting in, but someone helped direct us. The bathrooms and showers were basic, but cleaned. Laundry had one washer and dryer, but was fine. The campground has trees, shade and lots of grass. Good picnic tables, but no fire rings. I will say we had a bad rainstorm while here and it washed out part of the road into the park. The owner had a back-hoe and leveled it IMMEDIATELY, conscious of the importance. The location is excellent, about 10 mins. from Hendersonville and 30 min. from Asheville, close to shopping and grocery stores. Would definitely stay here again. Good Wi-Fi, got 6-7 stations with our antenna. Just nothing fancy. It was pay for six nights, get the seventh night free. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. Brown rabbits hopped around, lots of birds flitted about and sang, and it was very, very peaceful. The camp manager was extremely pleasant and helpful. The only downside was no Internet access, but we went to the library to use their's. We had breakfast at the Fireside Restaurant and Pancake Inn one morning; it was excellent and only about 2 miles from the park. We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are 20 sites, 11 of which are permanent. The park itself is very nice with a small pond for swimming and fishing, but the owners are relentless. They come and check to see who is there and charge extra for visitors. I think they even check to see if you have broken any blades of grass. One owner is called the camp Nazi. I could not get out of this park fast enough. We felt like intruders the whole time we were there. The few waterfront sites they have are tied up longterm. No facilities for children and other than the pond, none for adults. The only thing really attractive about the park is the location We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
