Nice RV resort. People are friendly and great for big rigs. The road coming up is a challenge but very doable....Take your time.... - jjensen4

Stay on the Ridge for incredible views of the mountains. Really nice club house and pool on the Ridge. Extremely friendly residents!
This resort is as good as it gets!! - rumboy1

This is a "destination" RV resort. There is nothing close by, but the resort is very nice with one big exception. The main clubhouse on the ridge has great view and a beautiful place to watch the sunset from the hot tub or just sit in a chair and relax.....except for one thing....a bunch of screaming kids who arrive about and hour before sunset! I'm sure their parents think they are cute and having fun, but the rest of us saw a bunch screaming brats running around the pool. If there were on rule, it should be no children after 8PM! We tried 5 nights to enjoy that pool/hot tub at night and only made it once when the screaming brats weren't there. Luckily there was another hot tub and pool, no view, but better than listening to that! Beyond that, yes, the wifi is worthless, but frankly, if I ever went to an RV park with even decent wifi, I would fall over! The rest of the resort is amazing, expensive for an RV park, but worth it. We don't mind driving to do things, so that was not a big deal. Great places to walk the dogs, super clean and when we were there, not crowded. I would go again and next time I will ask management to keep the kids out of the pool! That was worst part of the whole thing. So all in all not bad. The drive in is curvy, but we've been at this for years and it's totally doable! We drive a 43 ft coach with a tow vehicle. - scubajoe

Curvy road getting there but campground was in a beautiful setting. Covered patio with big screen TV and fireplace used every night for friendly gatherings. Hosts kept the whole area clean every day. Mix of return visitors and first timers like us. - J and T RV Travels

We have been fulltiming for the past 4 months and this has been our favorite campground so far especially for a small campground. Upon arriving, the host was there to greet us and help us back into our site and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Within the campground itself there was a small covered gathering area that had a TV and large fireplace and next to this was a large covered kitchen and BBQ area that had the stream running next to it. A five minute walk on the 51 acre property brings you to another large covered gathering area that had a kitchen, BBQ, and TV that overlooked a stocked fish pond. During the week we were there, which was just prior to the campground closing for the winter, there was a number of activities that brought campers together, such as a cookout, skeet shooting, fishing, golf outing, and happy hour. A few sites had plenty of room for the largest rig and a vehicle. Bathrooms and laundry were very clean. Very quiet and peaceful and a perfect campground to serve as a home base to hike and see the many waterfalls in the area. The only side note is that you make sure you follow the directions on their website, which stresses the third "driveway" past the Post Office, or else you will miss the turn. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. - Michael8585

We concur with all of the previous feedback re: the fantastic hosts, friendly & helpful seasonal campers, the quiet campground, beautiful landscape, creek with waterfalls, etc. This is our favorite campground ever! We Love this place! We searched for a campground in a location with cooler summer climates; this was the third one we toured. We knew immediately that this was the place. We made reservations for a month's stay. Enjoyed it so much, we extended our stay another month. Daily happy hours, weekly golf outings, grill outs, pot luck dinners & host-prepared meals are on the monthly calendar. This campground is geared towards adults, but families are welcome. We've always appreciated RV park reviews, although we have never written a review ourselves. We love this place so much, we felt compelled to sign-up and write a review so fellow campers can enjoy this gem. - Ruffin' It

OK park with good location. We stayed in a newer area 'on top' in the upper level. Some motorcoach drivers may not want to drive a large coach up the narrow sloped driveway to the upper area. Lower area was easy access. - FOSJ

Office was closed when we got there. I tried calling the number but was sent to answering machine. Owner later returned call after we had parked. There is a secure gate that blocks off the sites and if one of the residents hadn't opened it for us, we would not have been able to stay. The sites are very unlevel and the buckets covering the water hook-ups are filthy. This place needs TLC and lots of it. We paid in the morning when the office opened at 9. We would not stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

Very rustic park, a long loop in a canyon. Interior roads are gravel and rough, sites are grass and really off level. Worst part is that it rained quite heavily the week we were there and our site became a mud puddle. Wifi is good. We probably wouldn't return., - Wandering Wishnies

Great place to fish at! The owners are very helpful. The park is nice and clean. - tn2night
Oct 2009 - $25.00
Nice owners, its a bit out of the way, but is well worth it. You can walk over to where you want to fish and don't have to drive. We will go back again. - campamytime

The Campgrounds very run down, and looks nothing like web page what so ever. The restrooms are nothing more then upgraded outhouses and NOT clean at all. The shower house is an outdoor wooden shack with a screen door covered with several layers of plastic so you can not see inside. We attempted to talk to owners and they were NOT concerned at all. - John4nc

We have camped here before and were sorely disappointed to learn the this campground will be closing down for good at the end of October. The property has been sold to a developer to create a gated Equine community. This is a real gem, very secluded. We camped here in late July when it was 95 degrees everywhere in the south and the temperature in this campground at 5:00 PM was only 72 degrees - felt so good. The management/owners are very helpful. If you get the chance, experience the unique campground before it is gone. - dieseldrive

The park is nestled in a valley between two mountains. It is very shaded and we had perfect temperatures (70-72) even though we were camping in August. The staff and owners are quite friendly and make you feel like one of the family. There are group activities on weekends, a (pay) trout pond and 20 miles in either direction are nice little towns with gift shops, restaurants, etc... The park is level, which is unusual in the mountains. Lots of trees, and some backing is tight, but the owner will help guide you into your spot. Expect a strain on your engine to get there--and check those brakes, too! This was one of the most peaceful, relaxing camping trips ever! We will definitely make this a regular thing. - McMudder

Beautiful park for tent campers. Very clean. Roads a little steep and other sites pretty small; we had no trouble with our 24' travel trailer on the site we were given, but I didn't see another site we would fit on. Quite off the beaten path. Owners were extremely nice and very helpful. - bdodson

Very nice park in a beautiful area just outside of Brevard. Owners are very friendly and provide a wealth of information about local attractions and happenings. Park was quiet and well maintained. Wi-Fi is available but spotty during bad weather. Cell phone service is nonexistent. Only negatives where the narrow streets, small sites and they don't take credit cards. If you have a small RV, its a pretty nice place to stay. - John G

This was our third trip to Brevard and our second stay at Ash Grove. Once again it did not disappoint! The owners are gracious and beyond helpful. The sites are beautiful. The location is convenient to town but far enough out that you feel nature everywhere. Every time we go camping my youngest son begs to be taken back to Ash Grove. It really epitomizes what camping is all about. - TNGina

This was our first time visiting this park. Built in 1990, it is one of the newest of the state parks, which to me, makes no sense why they did not add sewer connections. Overall, a very nice park and campground. All of the staff we met were very friendly and knowledgeable. The park was clean and well kept.
Park Rangers make frequent rides thru the campground. The bathhouses were mostly clean - the floors stayed wet and dirty because of rain. One bathhouse does have a laundry, which we used and everything worked as it should. We did experience a lot of heavy rain during our stay which caused our site to wash mud and water to our door.
The sites are well spaced, electric good, great water pressure. OTA TV was hit or miss. AT&T cell service and LTE was good. The park has nice paved trails that lead to the tent sites, bathhouses and lake area.
I do not believe they had/have a camp host which may account for why our fire pit looks as if it has been some time since last cleaned.
I do want to give another big thank you to the gentleman at Burrell's (?) Automotive, a few miles from the campground. We had a mechanical problem with our vehicle and he stopped what he was doing to help and get us going again.
NOTE: On weekends this park and lake both become VERY crowded! - dtaylor

I stayed here for several days and had reservations for more, but left early for other reasons. The camp ground areas are very nice with a lake in the mountains with good views. I have a 40' pusher and while I made it through both loops, loop #1 is extremely tight and 40's in my view shouldn't be allowed on this loop and originally in #41. Loop #2 is better and finally stayed on site #15. 30 amp hook up worked as it should and has water, but didn't use as I'm already winterized. The views are nice, roads paved, extra pad for a tent and gravel, wooded, picnic table, fire ring, and nicely cleared for rear overhang of the pusher. Originally, I was in loop #1, site #41, site is easy to back into (once in that area), but a large oak wouldn't allow for awnings to be put out on the passenger side of the coach, the Ranger quickly agreed to move me to loop #2, with about 3 sites for my size, I chose site #15. The sites on this weekend in this park were about 95% occupied with everything you can imagine. The State Park shop was about the best I've seen to date and PR's friendly. The drive lanes were covered with leaves and difficult to see the drive through the loops, which again, are supper narrow, but I'll chalk that up to all the leaves falling this time of year and harder to keep up with to keep clean. My main issue with this S/P other than the tight fit is that the interior of the showers/restrooms needing a major make over with additions to hang your clothes, towels, shampoo and soap, etc. The sinks in the restroom area also need a major update. The shower/restroom area was somewhat cleaned each day, but a bit more time spent on it could have improved this. I did use the showers in the morning and night, of course the restrooms at various times of the day during my stay. If the restrooms/showers were in better condition, I would have rated my stay to 9, but rating it at 5 just for this issue. I'm referencing the loop #2 RR/shower area. - gsc66

This state park is located on beautiful Lake Jocassee. The park was difficult to get into with our 35 ft motorhome. The road leading into the park is very tight. The sites are very close together and most are not level. The park does not enforce the dog leash rule. We have a small dog and across from our site were four large dogs who were never on a leash. The bathrooms were clean but old and needed updating. THe positive was the lake. We took a pontoon boat tour from a private company and that was the highlight of our stay at Devil's Fork. - budolemiss

Very nice state campground! We stayed at site #5. Only thing that I did not like about the campground was the loop road. The loop road was not in good shape. Another camper could not back into site #8 due to the condition of the loop road and the trees. With our 33 ft RV, it was stressful driving thru the winding loop but we made it without hitting any trees. Watch out for drain ditches on the sides of the loop road! For this reason, we would probably not stay here again although we loved the site itself. The natural bridge trail was nice and we did it with 3 dogs and 3 kids but it can be tricky and slippery in sections. In my opinion, site #2 is easiest to back into. Site #3 is not bad either. Site #4 is a nice pull thru. Our site #5 is hard to get into if you have a big rig but wonderful site once you are in! Bathrooms were very clean but not updated. Two out of 3 toilets in the ladies' restroom were out. Showers were clean (no doors / just curtains). Park is thrash free which means that thrash cans have been removed. Pack it in / Pack it out. - Tatiana

Although this park is small it is a great getaway for rest with trails and a park museum. It allows easy acess to two great lakes. Easy to make Reservations through state parks web site. We stayed in the RV section and camped in a tent (tent section was full of scouts but they were quite a mouses) but we now have a popup trailer for our next visit this fall. Good for a stop over on hwy 11 or a week of rest!! - goldfarmer

This campground is in a wonderful location in the Pisgah National Forest. If you like to hike, motorcycle, float, view waterfalls and camp in a more rustic setting you will love this campground. There are multiple loops with a wide variety of sites. The first loop nearest the entrance has electric hookups. The other loops have a very limited number of electric hookups and those sites require reservations. You can creek swim in the campground or travel 8 miles to Sliding Rock to slide and swim in a wonderful setting. There are numerous opportunities to hike. The Blue Ridge Parkway is close by and the ride southbound will give you excellent views. - linnemj

Huge campground with multiple loops, but you'd never know it when staying in any of the loops. We were in a loop with lots of foliage cover and privacy. We had planned on only staying a couple days but enjoyed our stay so much we extended it. It was quiet during the weekend, but when the weekend arrived it did get busier with families and kids on bikes. Showers were spacious and very clean. Our loop had two bathrooms, although we were told the shower in one of them had no hot water. Limited or no cell service but wifi available in the parking area near the amphitheater. Would definitely return if we find ourselves in the area again. - Marsha D

Davidson River Campground is located in the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, next to the Davidson River. The campground has several loops with some electric only sites. Most sites have no hookups. A dump station is available with potable water available at the station. The sites are shaded and spacious with trees and forest separating them from each other. Campground staff patrol the grounds at night and enforce quite times. We have enjoyed several stays at Davidson River and will return in the near future. - burnswl

This is one of our favorite camping locations in spite of the minor problems pointed out by other reviews.
The Roads are a bit narrow, some of the sites aren't perfectly level. We also found some erosion where the gravel driveways into the sites leave the paved loop.
BUT - The views here are amazing. The lake is fantastic. But mostly this park has some of the best hiking in the South. Great trails that pass many waterfalls and creeks. It's also great to take drives into the Jocastes Gorges and Ceasar's Head areas and enjoy the views, waterfalls and other hikes.
We found the staff very friendly.
But the BEST THING about the park - there is almost NO Cell service and NO Wifi except at the store. So we can focus on camping without being bothered by the office, or tempted to play with our electronic devices. - Buddy Ray

I frequent the SC state parks and have found most to be very nice. That said, if it were not for the park activities, this would rank as one of the worst state park campgrounds. The campground is in need of a major updating. Very few of the sites are suitable for larger rigs. Most, if not all, of the sites are not level. The sites are gravel. The road thru the campground is paved but narrow and full of holes. Cell service (AT&T) is spotty at best. The main office for the park is not located near the main park. The campground store has limited hours. WiFi is available at the store during open hours but you have to be right at store. There is a washer and dryer beside store. The hiking trails are great. Bathhouse has had some updates and was clean each time I visited. This campground could easily be one of the best with a little work. As it is now, there is nothing inviting that would make me want to return. - dtaylor

Nice campground in the mtns, with paved roads and crusher run campsites. I stayed in site #8 and it was level and by a stream. Good hiking trails, clean restrooms and showers. However, the restrooms could use at least 1 hand air dryer or paper towels to dry hands. I'm winterized, so I didn't use the water in the normal way, but had good pressure. 30 amp hookup worked as it should. Free Wi-Fi at what the SP calls the "country store", closed for the season, but have to be on their front door for signal. ATT cell did not work in the area, but did find a spot on loop 2 (closed for the season) around site 29. I've tent camped here and now in the motorhome, I will stay here again. - gsc66
