Beautiful, small, and peaceful. The sites are on the river and it's so peaceful. Sites are big with some of the nicest picnic tables I have ever seen. Mostly adults camp here but a few kids are usually running around. Nice dog park and overall a very beautiful place to stay. This is our 3rd visit and we never want to leave. It's close to Mt Mitchell state park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is also canoeing and river rafting close by. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground, owners live on site and take great pride in the appearance of this facility. The owners checked us in and were very friendly and helpful. Very spacious sites, very clean bath house/restrooms. There is a small camp supply store with various necessities. Nice pavilion with activities regularly planned, it was S'more Saturday Night, when we visited. I would have normally rated this campground a 9, but due to geography, there is no cell service and each site is limited to 250 meg each 24 hours. As soon as a cell tower or cable is extended to this location, it will quickly rate higher. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is beautiful, peaceful, well manicured/landscaped and very clean. It is obvious the owners take great pride in providing a wonderful camping experience. Sites are full hook up, level, spacious and over half of them back up to a very peaceful stream. Bathhouse was very clean, and the camp store/office offers books and movies on loan. We will be back soon!! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Take trip up to the blue ridge parkway and hike to Crabtree Falls. Hike is moderate with switchbacks/stairs, but the view of the falls is beautiful.

This campground is very well maintained and the owners take pride in it. The sites are level with plenty of gravel. Even when pouring rain, there are no puddles or mud. The creek is beautiful. The road to get to the campground is dicey, but once you are there, the peacefulness is worth the ride!! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

We just purchased a camper and this was our first camping trip. Mountain Stream was recommended by a friend and it was the perfect weekend getaway. We did not want to leave on Sunday. The weather was cool, but beautiful. The campground was beautiful, peaceful, very clean, and quiet. Everyone at the park was so nice and our little dog Odie had a great time too. We stayed at Site 26 and the dog park was just across the road. The river and waterfall behind our campsite was so peaceful as we sat by the campfires at night. We had fun with friends catching up and just enjoying a peaceful weekend. We highly recommend this campground to anyone that is looking for a quite weekend getaway. We are looking forward to booking our next trip very soon after our granddaughter is born and plan to bring our son and his family with us. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is for adults that want to sit by a mountain stream and relax. It is almost to the top of the mountain near the Blue Ridge Parkway so the road is steep and winding but in good condition. It is not recommended to come down from the Blue Ridge in a Big Rig but 34' is ok. Almost all sites are along the creek(s) and have fire rings and some have decks to provide a nice sitting area. Overall it is a small camp ground and the owners live on site. There is a nice fenced in dog play area. The bath house is very small and cramped with pass through curtains for access to the back shower via the first shower no privacy and one sink. The park is nicely landscaped, well kept and the camp store has only a few basic items and doubles for the owner's ham radio shack which adds some character. We go a couple times each year for a relaxing weekend. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

Absolutely beautiful mountain oasis. The bath house was immaculate. This is a place for relaxation and kicking back. Previous reviews criticized the Wi-Fi and pet policy. Wi-Fi is strong and bandwidth limits are not restrictive. I could do email and surf the net. I did exceed my limit one day (Downloading programs) I was cut off until the next day. I did not have any problems staying there with my 100 lb. dog. The dog had fun playing in the stream with the kids. Responsible owners clean up after their pets. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

Probably the most clean and nicest campgrounds I've ever stayed in, and I've been camping for over 50 years. That being said, there are a couple of things everyone should know: 1. Road leading to campground seems Extremely dangerous no matter what. Good pavement but very narrow and very curvy and twisty! Owners can't change this but be careful...I'm not exaggerating! 2. Temperature was in the lower forty's and the heat was not on in the bathroom?? 3. Although I had no problem as some other reviewers have had, the owners seem overly concerned about their grass and pet waste. Most pet owners and people who are responsible and don't need extended lectures. 4. Campground seems perfect for seniors. Once again, the place is absolutely spotless and pristine. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

First of all, let me say that this is a pretty park. Although the sites are on top of each other, they are clean and well kept. The picnic tables are really nice as well. That's where our positives end. While checking in, I was lectured on the do's and do not's. Aside from the 18 rules (19th one was a "if you read all the rules come get a free gift"), I was informed that it was OK to check email and Google a few things, but do not download movies, do not go on Facebook, etc, because their Wi-Fi is on satellite and they only have so much bandwidth. If they go over the bandwidth, then the Internet service provider will cut them off for 24 hours and they use it for business reasons as well. The place is more dog friendly than it is kid friendly. Around 9:15 some kids were playing near the pavilion and the owners came on 2 separate times to tell them that it was quiet time. Quiet time is 10 PM there. It's on their rules and on the sign next to where the kids were. The kids were not loud either. The next day, the kids were playing in the creek and tossing rocks. The owner comes and tells them to stop doing it that they paid to have those rocks put there. The parents of the kids were both there and nothing was said to them. There is nothing else there for kids to do at all. The wife and daughter went into the store there and she felt as if the owner kept watching them as if they were doing something wrong. They do have a dog walk area which is nice. But there are rules all over the place about your pets. Not only on the long list of rules which mention that dog wastes leave bacteria and germs in the grass. (What?!) All in all, we didn't feel welcome here. We had a child and a dog. We've read the reviews and mention about it on forums, but didn't believe it was going to be as bad as we found it. We felt so over-watched that we decided not to attend the potluck. Our neighbors did and they said felt like outsiders there. No one would talk to them or eat their food. Both us and neighbors on both sides felt like there was a select group that went there often. We will not return. If we were ever to do it, it would be when we are much much older, without kids and probably without a pet. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park, most sites along stream, all back-in. Didn't want dogs going potty on grass and lots of other rules. Lady checking us in seemed a little "testy". Did have a fenced dog park. Was charged $10 early check in fee before noon - it was 11:15. We got a deluxe site which was huge. Problem with water pressure which was going to be fixed the day we left. WiFi was satellite and slow. Cable TV was limited. We'd go again. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here during Easter weekend. When we arrived the owner checked us in. He used a memorized script telling me the do's and don'ts. He wasn't rude but wasn't very friendly either. It seemed like he didn't want to be there. He gave me some printed info about the campground and related rules. The rules were highlighted in yellow and were plentiful. He told me to have the dog use the bathroom on the gravel. There was no area for dogs to use. The park is pretty and situated on Buck Creek. The sites are very small. We had a "premium super stream site". It was very small and our car didn't fit very well in front of the motor home. The road in the park is gravel and probably very dusty at times. We didn't notice dust since it had rained recently. There were no trails or walking areas. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice RV park. It was extremely clean and well maintained. I did not try the bathrooms but my husband said they were clean. The only beef I have about this place is that there's not much for kids. They don't even have a playground and then they want them to strictly adhere to park rules. I don't think I would say children are welcomed, just allowed. Other than that it was very nice and we enjoyed our time there. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful, quiet, small park. The wifi worked great. Notice for dog owners - your dogs are not allowed to use the grass in the park between sites for their business. Unfortunately, there is no other grass except out on the road. Not a problem for us because we didn't bring our dogs on this trip but we talked to some other dog owners who would not have come there if they had known this in advance (it's not on their website). If your dog requires grass, you need to walk them on the road. We probably won't be back if we are traveling with our pets. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a beautiful park! A gem set in the mountains! We stayed on a premium site that backed up to the running stream. The site had its own deck with a picnic table. Each site has a "firebox" that you can have a campfire in. Firewood is available at the campground store. The owners are friendly and take wonderful care of their park. We did have wifi access, but unless you have satellite, you probably won't be watching TV. That is fine with us. We came to enjoy the mountains and the beauty around us. Just a note: No cellphone service in the park. Not a problem for us, but others may need to have access. We hope to be back here next year! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.
