This is just a campground hooked to the serice center at Tom Johnsons. No pool, ammenities, etc. That said all the spaces are concrete and level with decent space in between each rig. It is close to a lot of things to do if you have a vehicle. It is easy in and out. with space for Big Rigs. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

This is not a destination park. It is a convenient place to stay if you plan to visit the surrounding area. There is no pool, recreation area, picnic tables, grills, Wi-Fi, cable, or TV reception. There are no discounts. When I asked, the lady said "IT'S THIRTY DOLLARS". They do advertise Wi-Fi but it is only reliable at the club house. They do have a beautiful club house and really good breakfast but it is closed in the evenings and on the weekends so you cannot use the TV when you really want it. The shower room is exceptional but there are only two washers and dryers. There is a very nice RV store. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Lots to do in the area. Convenient to state parks, Ashville, The Biltmoore Estate, Black Mountain, and more.
Stayed one night returning home. Was very impressed with campground and ease in and out. Came in on a Sunday. Glad I made reservations ahead since no one is there on a Sunday for checking in or to handle problems. We had good Wi-Fi on our site. Could only get 3 PBS stations and nothing else. No cable available. Breakfast and lunch available. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. Biggest complaint was there were people cleaning RV's and parked their trucks,trailers in the road. Had to drive around them on the grass in order to leave. Not very nice pulling a 39 foot unit. Other complaint is there should be someone available on Sunday. Large enough to at least have a volunteer there. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the "rally" section with Escapees. Nice place for a rally. Only complaints are: sites do not have any extras - no fire ring, picnic table, cable or WiFi. WiFi is available in main service building which is closed in the evenings (you can still pick it up from the parking lot). Our group was treated very well by the owners and I would stay there again for another rally. I don't think we would stay there if not at a rally but it would be fine for a few nights.

This review is for the 66 paved sites and not the grass group camping across the road. No discounts on rate. Good clean RV park with very few amenities. Very easy in/out, all paved, 70x25' level concrete back-in sites with full hookups. Negatives: no picnic table, no fire rings, no wifi, no cable, no over the air channels received, satellite okay except the sites by the trees, nothing for kids to do, no pet area, Walmart & some fast food a few miles away but not much else. Grill available when service shop is open. Verizon 3G data, ATT 4G. River on edge of camp might be good for fishing. Overall, a good place if your intention is to explore Asheville & the Blueridge and just sleep here. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.
We arrived on the Sunday before Memorial Day. No one was around to help us with anything and the gate was locked. We waited until someone keyed in the code to get out and slipped in. We knew our site number when we made the reservation so we just set up. Overall a nice campground on a small river but when we went the grass needed cutting badly. Probably a good spot if you were having your RV worked on. Okay for overnight. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First visit to the park. We were there for warranty work on our motor home. Nice big back in sites. They have a restaurant for breakfast and lunch at the service area. Very clean park. Biltmore Estate is 30 miles away. We were here for four days. Would recommend the park if you need service. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here for an Escapees Rally and the campground and surrounding businesses really took care of us. There was a lot of rain while we were there and the campground had a tractor ready in case we needed help leaving. This kind of support is exceptional and appreciated. The sites are all on a slight grade, nothing that can't be handled by any system, and they are all grass. Well maintained facilities with a large shelter for meetings. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for the NC Spring Samboree. We stayed in the group event campground across the street from the "regular" campground, but had access to the amenities available there. The park owners and employees were very friendly. Because it is a group campground, the sites, which had full hookups, were on grass, which was mostly level. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We needed a minor repair on our slide out, and decided to extend our stay to sight see the area. The sites are spacious, and some back up to a creek. Level concrete pads and paved roads make easy site setup. Hookup location is good and work as expected. This CG is not a 10 because; no picnic table at site, no Wi-Fi at site, and the only bath house is a long way from most sites. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here for the NC State bluegrass festival camped in a travel trailer on a grassy site with no shade. There was very easy access to the site, which was nearly level front-to-back, but had to level side-to-side about 2 inches (not too bad). The employees we encountered are fantastic and very helpful; trash pickup was every morning. The on-site grill serves breakfast and lunch and is reasonably priced. The place is kept very clean with twice-a-day cleaning of the bath houses. I would have rated this a 10 except for three things: the lack of shaded campsites, the lack of more bath houses and the fact that rain causes some of the non-paved spaces to be very soggy and sometimes unusable. There is a Lowe's, Food Lion, Wal-Mart shopping center very close by (about two miles away). I would definitely go there again, all things considered. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We loved this campground! With large back-in concrete sites and patios, 50 amp FHU's, paved interior roads and pristine landscaping, we had a great 2 weeks stay. Because the park is part of the Tom Johnson Service Center, it's not a family campground destination. However, this is the perfect location for visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville and Biltmore House. Would have rated this a 10 if the laundry was more than 2 washers and 2 dryers. We had to drive to Black Mountain to find a laundromat. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit the Blue Ridge Mountains. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here for a Rally. We have stayed in other Rally parks but this is by far the best. We were a little too closely packed in, but sometimes that is to be expected. The connecting campground, RV dealership and repair center appear to be first class. The only complaint: there are only two washers and dryers meant to handle a large rally field plus the campground. And they are in a little alley with no place to comfortably fold or hang clothes. That being the only issue, we would have no problem returning here. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A very clean and neat park with paved sites. The staff, which turned out to be the folks at the RV Service Center, were extremely friendly and the cafe located on site is top notch. A good park to stay at while sightseeing the Blue Ridge Mountains. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.
There are actually two parks, the beautiful 66 site park with full hookups, level concrete pads, and excellent shower and laundry facilities. There is also a rally park nearby which does not have 50 amp service. I'm reviewing the newer 66 site park. It is very big rig friendly with easy access. Spotless and well manicured grounds, excellent restroom and shower facility, and top quality hookups including cable. The down side is a lack of shade, swimming pool, or any sort of activities. It's a great place to stay while exploring area attractions, but don't expect to be entertained while in the park. All sites are back in, but huge and well spaced. Up the hill is the bath house with laundry, Tom Johnson RV service center, camping store, and RV show room. There are lots of shopping and eating possibilities near by in the Marion area. Verizon cell and data cards work well here. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.
