Check in was smooth with a nice lady. The roads coming into the park are narrow and in rough shape. Sites are level with the utilities in good working order. The owners appear to be dressing up the campground which could use it overall. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice, quiet park with very attentive owners. For what it is, we give it a solid 8. Would score it a bit higher with shower / restroom facilities, and a bit of improvement on the entrance road, but a very nice place for an over night stay or a weekend. Be sure to take the short walk down to the river - it's beautiful. Also, a very nice pond a pavilion. As others have mentioned, the road in/out is quite steep and narrow and a little rough in spots. Not to worry, it will certainly handle even the largest of coaches, however I have to wonder what would happen if meeting a 40 ft DP coming the opposite direction. If both coaches are pulling toads, one would have to stop and unhitch. The road is too narrow in spots for two coaches to pass. But then again, that's unlikely to happen in this relatively small park. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Checked by email 10 days before we needed one night. The owner said they were full but to try back in case of a cancel. Called day before we needed the night and she said come on, we have a nice pull thru for you for the night you need. This is excellent campground service and we appreciated it. Park is small but sites are long (we are over 65 feet). Hook ups are new and placed correctly and work properly. No cable, but they have satellite connections and the OTA antenna picks up about 12 channels. Yes, the road is rough and narrow but just take it easy. We would stop again when in this area. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with the others and won't repeat the observations. A very nice park that is cared for by very attentive owners. They are very friendly and helpful. They are always working on the park. Grounds are extremely well taken care of. WiFi was very good. Solid Verizon 4G service. They just added 3 pull though sites and 2 back ins. Very quick access to lots of shopping in Hickory. They give a Military discount. Lots of big rigs throughout our 2 week stay. We like this park and will be back. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff here is really friendly and helpful. We stayed here without a car thinking there would be a lot of hiking nearby, and there really wasn't much. You can go up a nearby hill on a short trail, or a few feet to the river, but it's pretty tough to cross the river to get into the really woodsy area across it. Our dogs definitely couldn't get across. We stayed in a pull-through site in the middle of the circle. There wasn't any privacy but the sites around the outside had more. All the sites were pretty big, with plenty of room for awnings out, patio rugs, etc. We were able to get a satellite connection with no problem (our middle site had no trees). I think they had a way to hook up to their DirecTv too, although we didn't need it. We had a lot of mud because it was raining and really cold when we stayed there. I wouldn't recommend it except for an overnight stop without a vehicle to get you out and about, as there really isn't much to do there otherwise. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects military discount. NOTE: NO restrooms or showers available at this campground. So you must be self contained. This is the primary reason I gave them a 9 instead of a 10. Several other points to downgrade: it is cash (check) only, not credit card. Road in is narrow and steep gravel, could be an issue for new drivers. And only swimming is in river. BUT...having said all that, I still give them a 9. They are a small campground but as others have said, the owners are on site and VERY helpful and friendly. Sites are large and lovely. Though just a mile from I-40, because you are in a hollow, you have no noise other than nature. There are places for young kids to play, pavilions for groups, and horseshoes, volleyball for adults. Sites were level and well designed. We stayed for 3 days to visit a relative and wished we had spent more time at the campground and tried the river. People were very friendly. There are many regular seasonal's, but owners will work hard to accommodate you and find a site. As a bonus, owner's daughter was there and is a hairdresser; she gave my wife a wonderful (much needed) hair cut and it came out very nice. Reasonable price too!! Highly recommend if you are in the area and need a place to stay you give them a call. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground and very friendly owners. Very clean and quiet. Owner went out of their way to assist us. A little bit off the beaten path but worth it. Great place to stay and will use this campground again when passing through. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our second stay at this campground, and it's still just as great as before. Super friendly staff that will go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Great modern hookups (I love the two sewer hookups on the pull through sites for my double tanked rig!), nice laundry and a beautiful setting even in the winter. It's a little steep to get down into the hollow but its not a problem, just be aware of it. Right off the interstate and it's 15 minutes to downtown Hickory. Will be back!

We stayed here based on comments from other reviewers. The campground is small with only 20 plus spaces but they are well laid out in a picturesque valley not far from I-40. I made a last minute reservation after failing to find a campground with availability closer to our destination, Boone, NC. I was told when making the reservation they do not take credit cards but do accept checks and that they do not provide public rest rooms or shower facilities. Booking at the last minute, the only site available was a “over-flow” site which did not have sewer or 50 amp service. This site worked great for us in that we did not need the sewer and with the temperature around 88 the 30 amps ran both air conditioners fine as long as other loads were managed. There is a moderately steep grade approaching the campground however it is not severe, just something to be aware of, and did not present any problems. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Wi-Fi was good. Nice and quiet. Nice little playground for the Grand kids. I will stay here again but am somewhat at a loss as to how to grade it. For two retired folks that like a spacious quiet environment near Hickory/I-40 it was very nice. Note, our rate was less due to no sewer connection and only 30 amp service as we were in an over-flow site. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

In addition to previous comments, this is a great place. There is no cable, but they have Dish & Directv antennas where all you need to do is hook up at your site. Provided you brought your receiver. They offer a 10% discount for military service. Since it was hot I declined the discount figuring that I would use that much extra electricity but they would not hear of it. They are located on the Henry River and it is a great place for kids to tube and play on the rocks. You will see this park expanding in the future. We stayed here 3 nights to enjoy the Waldensen Festival in Valdese, a few miles west. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Awesome little campground convenient to I-40 in the foothills of the Blue Ridge. Very secure and the owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need to make your stay as pleasant. Very family and pet oriented; a great get away or stop along the way to the Smokey Mtns. Laundry on site but no bathhouse/restrooms, but every site has full hookups. Don't miss this one.

We spent several nights here. This is an excellent park that is extremely well kept and clean. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome and helpful. There is a river that is a short walk. We camped with three dogs and they had a ball playing in the river. Some permanent sites that are very clean and well kept. You can tell everyone here takes pride in their sites. Small pond and very nice pavilion with picnic tables. Would definitely stay again. Very close to the Hickory furniture mart.

Great place. Very clean with big sites. Pretty campground. The Wi-Fi was about the best we have had, and we traveled from California. A campground. I hope to come back as the people that run it are very nice. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice place to relax. Sites are large, with the Henry River backing up to some of the sites, with a small pond for fishing. The park is well maintained and clean. Laundry room is spotless. There are no showers or bathrooms. Hickory is very close with a lot of shopping and restaurants. The park is gated so we felt very secure. Staff are very friendly and helpful, they have done a great job with the park and helping to make your stay pleasant. If I come back to Hickory this is where we will stay.
