We stayed here for 6 nights in August and found this to be a nice, well-run campground. Our primary concern with this campground is location. It is barely in the mountains and as a result, it was HOT! I know any area can have highs and lows throughout the season, but this campground is at too low an elevation (I would guess less than 500') to be considered "in the mountains." There are great views of the mountains, but just be aware it is more flatland the the mountains. Also, this is absolutely a family campground: there were kids everywhere! Lots of playing in the river, tubing, etc., so don't expect much quality fishing here. We might stay here again for a night as a stayover spot, but will spend most of our Western NC visit in more mountainous, community campgrounds. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped here over the past four years since the new owners have taken over and they are continuing to make great strides in improving the campground. Several sites for rv's have been re-graded and leveled and new pads poured. Fire rings are conveniently located on the sites. The staff here are friendly and helpful. The only downside would be the laundry is in the play/game room which sometimes leaves the floor gritty from the outside roads. It is easy in and out from either I-40 or I-26. We will camp here in the future. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in July. Plus: Utilities were good. Easy back in. Concrete pads. Painted picnic tables. Clean fire rings. Best set up of fire rings I have seen won't melt your RV. Gravel where needed. Friendly staff. OK store. You can walk to the upper end of the camp ground, enter the river and tube to the lower end (15 minute ride). Nice. Clean river. Quiet, no road noise. Minus: Overall kind of junky. Most sites are next to a small, shallow tributary of river. However the river is not actually visible except from the extreme East and West sites: big disappointment. Need to trim bushes on tributary so it is visible from campsites. Dam only open on weekdays but water is deep enough to tube anyway. Only 5 channels on cable TV. One thing that was odd was the "NO Trespassing Private Property" signs regarding the river on the lower end of the campground and in the tributary; limits ability to explore river below campground and makes you think there are angry property owners adjacent to campground. Would camp here again if I could not find anywhere else. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice campground . Not very big , but neat . We camped next to the river and opened our windows and could hear the running river water all night . We spent most of the time visiting Lake Lure and Chimney Rock . The staff were very friendly and assisted in every way . They had apple trees across from our campsite that we helped ourself to (after asking) . We really enjoyed our stay and would camp there again . We camped at River Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a disapointment for us. When I made reservations I was told we would have internet service in our trailer and cable TV. We had four channels only and no internet service. If I went outside and sat in my truck I could barely pick up a weak signal if I sat just right. Maybe not a big thing, but when you are self employed you need to stay in touch and you pay a premium for this type of camping service. When I asked about the internet all I got was, "Oh well the signal goes where it goes" and no offer to move me closer to the hub or anything. They did say I can sit in the open club house when it was 40 degrees and use my laptop there. Otherwise they were friendly enough but the campground is in great need of repairs as most CG's in the area. The hurricane that ripped through these parts a few years back really devastated many of the cg's and most have never recovered. The grass is all but dead, tall weeds and just an overrun down appearence. It is a shame because it is a nice location and given some time and money it could be a nice place, but I am afraid it will follow the path of many others in the area. Sorry I can't say we will be back. The pictures on their website are definitely pre-hurricane. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is a diamond in the rough. It is not anything fancy, but the owners are very hospitable and helpful. Additionally, it is very family friendly. We camped here with our children, and they thoroughly enjoyed the playground and the gameroom. The accessibility of the sites was ok (most are back-in). They were very level but somewhat narrow. We were not very impressed with the view from our site which overlooked the creek. However, we can blame only ourselves for this since this was a last minute decision. Next time we will book earlier and request a riverfront site. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We tried to camp here, however, the campground is not as expected by looking at their website. The campground owners are very friendly and accommodating. They even gave us a refund when we decided not to stay. We left this campground because the campground was burning trash and smoke from the burning trash was covering our campsite. Also, we were backed up to the river which also overlooked a mobile home with junk in the back yard. Very nice folks: just not what we expected.

We have camped at several campgrounds in this area and found River Creek to be friendly - clean and a great place for our children, they loved the river. The playground has a small train for the smal children to play on - it is so cute! I was surprised the campground looked as good as it did, after all the damage Hurrican Frances did to them. The campground is near to everything you might want to visit. Ladies - the bathrooms and shower house are CLEAN! We camped at River Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.
