This is the second visit to mountain stream. It is a small campground with very clean restrooms, clean sites and wonderul owners! The weekend we stayed we had free pulled pork sandwiches and that just showed how much the owners love their campers. I hope everyone gets to enjoy this campground at least once, we will be back again for sure! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had the pleasure of staying at Mountain Stream RV Park 2 times this fall! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we made reservations before we left for October! The bathhouse is well maintained and the showers are AMAZING! The whole park is kept very very clean! We WILL be visiting again!

The hosts are wonderful and they are always checking to make sure you are happy and if you need anything at all! If you buy wood from them, they will even deliver to your site! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

The park is lovely. The creek that nearly surrounds the park is nice to wade in, and our dogs loved playing in the water. It gets really dark there at night which is great for stargazing. The dog play area is a bit on the small side.

There is NO cell phone service at this RV park. Seriously - none - so, if you need to stay connected 24/7, this may be an issue for you. The wifi only worked at the pavillion (and even then, only sometimes). Again; not a problem unless you NEED wifi. The cable TV channel selection was good, the owners were nice. The camp store has DVD's to borrow.

The owners have had the park for about four months, and even though it's already nice, they are fixing it up even more with a large stone fireplace and big screen TV. One of the owners makes and serves pulled pork on Saturday evenings (no cost), and it was wonderful. The last five to six miles from Marion, NC to the RV park are hairy: the road is narrow and windy with a few narrow bridges as well. Take your time: the road isn't a busy one, and pay attention for cyclists.

My only suggestions for the park (and these may already be on the to do list for the new owners) is a more well stocked camp store (especially since the road to Marion is so hairy), and a few more activities: even as small as some cornhole boards for guests to use. A place to wash off the dogs after they play in the creek would be WONDERFUL! The picnic tables are high quality, the park is clean and quiet and peaceful. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Quiet RV Park, We stayed in Site #17; it included a nice deck, however, it was too small to fit my tow vehicle and there was no parking in the adjacent parking lot that fits 3 cars so I parked in front of the pay phone in the street. Not ideal but ok; it was better then parking down by the office. The Men's shower's are kind of quirky requiring you to pass through one shower to get to the other, kind of awkward. I believe there was an additional $3.00 per day fee for 50 amp. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped on site 17, a Prime Stream with deck site. The prime sites with decks are not very wide, but they are deep and we loved our deck over the stream bed. We loved camping beside the stream and hearing the water. We would like to return to this park and be on a Prime Stream Super Site for a little more space and privacy. We camped on weeknights only and the park was quiet. The only possible complication at this park is that there is no cell phone service. The new owners are working hard to have internet, but did not have much luck with that. We enjoyed being off the grid, and there is phone service not far away in Marion. If you must have internet, ask if that service has improved. This park is under new management, but we found the new owners to be very helpful and eager for us to be satisfied. We look forward to returning to Mountain Stream RV Park in the future. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

My family (5 RVs total) all visited Mountain Stream for the Memorial Day weekend and we had a GREAT experience! The site I was on (recommended by my parents who we previous guests) was PERFECT for us and our two dogs. No grass (which meant no muddy feet!) but lots of rock, lush foliage, a swing, and a beautiful view of the stream. So many folks walking by our site commented on how beautiful it was. Overall the grounds were very clean and it was obvious that the owners took great pride in the campground. Hwy 80 was a bit narrow and windy, so going slow, being careful, and paying attention are all very important. My husband thoroughly enjoyed cycling in the area and we ventured out to nearby towns almost every day. Cell service is completely nonexistent once you pass Dot's on Hwy 80, so be sure to say your goodbyes before you start winding your way up the mountain. The campground offered WiFi but we heard that it was being worked on so we didn't bother asking for the password since we didn't figure we could stay under the minimum anyways (ha ha). We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return soon! We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this campground over Memorial Day weekend. The campground was great, although we did not get the site we had reserved due to a "computer problem" but the site we had was great. Backing up to the stream was very beautiful, set between the mountains. The problem was the road to the campground. The road is named "The Devil's Whip" which we did not learn until the day of our departure back down it. Great to ride motorcycles on, not so great when hauling a 43 foot fifth wheel. Needless to say with oncoming traffic we kissed the guard rail. I would not recommend this road for larger rigs. Unfortunately no matter how nice the campground we won't be back. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything about the park is fantastic. From the drive up Hwy 80 to the site and the amenities provided. We had our 2 young children with us and they had a blast playing in the creek and fields. The park is immaculately maintained, you can tell that they love what they do. The owners were very nice and hospitable. Their web site is extremely useful in selecting where you would want to stay as they have photos of every site available with the click of the mouse. The internet and phone connectivity may be an issue for some but it worked just fine for the limited access we were wanting. We ended up staying an additional day and not wanting to leave.

The grounds were very well kept up. Campground is smaller and most sites are along the stream. We stayed at the Prime Stream Super site which was very easy to back into and had a picnic table overlooking the water. Lots of trees with good spacing for a hammock. Dogs must be kept off the grass, but they do supply a dog area which was nice. Make sure you have a long water hose since hookup is at the back of the site. Will definitely visit again.

Nice clean little park. Close spaces but usual for a seasonal park. Owners are somewhat friendly. Creek runs around most of the sites. WiFi but a bit slow and owners limit and watch the usage closely. The cons are: The road to the park is very narrow with lots of tight turns, not for the faint of heart. No cell phone service, you have to go down the mountain a bit for service. No laundry but there is a clean one in town if needed. Limited parking space. Ice a bit expensive at $3.50 a bag. Close to the road, can be noisy during the day but not bad at night. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
