We just returned from AVF and we had a great time! This resort is conveniently located near major interstates, but the last few miles into the resort can be challenging depending on time of day and weather conditions. Slow down, pay attention, and you'll be fine. When you turn into the resort, stop and grab your welcome pack. Hopefully, you will have studied the site map on their website in advance, as there is no one to guide you to your site. The site you have chosen will determine which way you turn to navigate to your site. Worst case if you decide to just wing it is you make a victory lap of the resort and have to start over. We were there during the Fall Owners Rally and we met several owners. They welcomed us into their "family" and were exceptionally gracious and accommodating. The resort really is as pretty as the pictures. Being there in mid-October we were treated to beautiful fall colors and cool temperatures. As each site is individually owned, there are a wide variety of amenities and upgrades amongst the different sites. Some are spectacularly landscaped and fitted out with waterfalls, fire pits, grills, decks, furniture, gazebos, etc. A couple are just a concrete slab with a couple of plants in need of a little TLC. We stayed on two different sites during our 10-day stay. The first was site 150. One of the premier lots in the resort overlooking the lake with its own private waterfall. After the first week we wanted to stay longer, but being prime leaf-peeping season the resort was sold out. Luckily, one of the owners contacted another owner and we were able to move to site 155. Great back-in lot with a terrific lake/mountain view. AVF is beautiful, a reasonable drive from Florida, the people we met were delightful. We'll be back! We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This location is strictly a Class A motorhome camp ground. They have strict rules as to the minimum size (36') and age of the motorhome (nothing older than 10 years). All lots are privately owned but are rented through the Rumbling Bald Resort at Lake Lure. For the price of the rental you have full access to the resort which includes golf course, pool, restaurants, spas, walking and hiking trails, private lake access, marina, amongst other amenities. The motorhome park is outside the main resort gate, however this is a good thing as the motorhome resort is quiet, very clean and well maintained. All are full hook up sites, with concrete pads and many of the sites come with wood decks, outdoor fireplaces, benches, swings, etc. This sites are very lush and hide most of the motorhomes quite well, while you can see some of them it is hard to see all of them, thus also making it a very private location. If the price of admission doesn't scare you off, then this is a really beautiful place to stay, within an hour of Asheville, many hiking trails, Chimney Rock, and other mountain attractions. The town of Lake Lure also offers more restaurants, shopping at Chimney Rick village, and picnic areas, plus a beautiful lake beach. Acceptable wifi, no cable, but satellite reception at least on our site was excellent. We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This small RV resort is quiet, private, and just our style. Because it is part of the Rumbling Bald Resort at Lake Lure (a short 3/4 mile away) you have access to all their amenities--golfing, swimming, boating, dining. Apple Valley itself does not have amenities other than a lovely small lake. All lots are privately owned, with level concrete pads, open above (good if you use satellite) but thickly landscaped on the sides to provide shade and nice privacy screening. WiFi can be slow. No cable. Small laundry room and one bathroom with shower available. People were very friendly and helpful. Be sure to follow driving directions given on website and not your GPS. Last part of the drive (about 20 miles) is on windy roads and some are not friendly to motor homes! Would definitely return. We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The boat tour of Lake Lure is fun. Chimney Rock and the Biltmore at Asheville are an easy drive.

This park is gorgeous. Each site is privately owned. I don't think we got our money's worth, however. There was no porch furniture on site. There was a fire pit, but it had a cover that was disintegrating and had shrunken so it couldn't easily be pulled off. There is no dog run. The wifi was very slow. A hefty accommodation tax is added on to the daily rate. We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very well maintained resort, restricted to Class A only 35ft or longer diesel pushers, set in the beautiful resort of Rumbling Bald on 3000 acres. The road is paved and there is good security. All sites are fully concrete, level and pull in, most sites face a lovely lake, big rig access is good. Very quiet with plenty of space and privacy around the RV. The landscaping is wonderful with plenty of shade trees and shrubs which adds to the sense of privacy, some sites have gazebos, swings, decks etc. and we had a lovely view over the lake. Fun to watch the geese and their babies. There are no laundry or bathroom facilities. Wi-Fi and cell are good. You can view their website for photos of each lot you might want to stay on. There is a supermarket with diesel not too far away from the resort as well as local restaurants. We highly recommend Huckleberry's, a two minute walk from the resort, wonderful food, attentive staff and great ambience. Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and Asheville are great for sightseeing. The resort has so many activities, golf, tennis, pools, hiking, lake cruises, as well as a couple of restaurants. However, there is 20 miles of fairly narrow country roads to get to the resort. There is no cable and the registration and check in process is somewhat disorganized. We would stay here again.   We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We spent a few days at this gem of a resort. Check in is a little disorganized as a previous poster mentioned. Great site overlooking the lake and great amenities included with the site rental at the resort just right down the road. Verizon cell service was sketchy and Wi-Fi seemed very weak in the area of the park we were in. We have three children and they loved the kids pool at Rumbling Bald Resort.

The actual name is the Apple Valley Motorcoach Resort. It is located within the Rumbling Bald Resort and is reached through their website and phone numbers. The most beautiful RV resort we have ever stayed at. Originally developed to accommodate Prevost owners only, it is now available for public use (class A coaches only). Most sites face a beautiful lake with magnificent scenery everywhere. Tons of stuff to do at this resort. 2 golf courses, boating, tennis, exercise area, on site restaurants, hiking trails, chapel, etc. All sites are fully concreted, some with gazebos, grills, swings, waterfalls, water wheels, etc. View the website photos of each lot. Located near Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, NC Hendersonville and Asheville, 30 minutes away. There are numerous restaurants and shops nearby in addition to a large supermarket with diesel. If you book more than 3 nights, you get 2 nights free. A true sleeper and relatively unknown to most RVers. We camped at Apple Valley Farm RV Resort in a Motorhome.
