This park has 3 loops of campsites but only loop "B" was open with 14 sites available some of which would accept tents only. It is run by the USDA Forest Service. Very secluded, quiet park. There is a lake nearby with a free boat ramp but that's about all the activities available except for a short hiking trail. Access for big rigs is touchy but doable, using the dump station requires a bit of maneuvering. A staff member stated that it was possible this park may be closed in the future since it is lightly used. Regular rate is $8/night, our rate reflected senior rate. - Bob & Stephanie

Third time camping at Persimmon Creek but first time in a camper. Full hookups and electricity at each campsite plus there are also nice restrooms and showers. Very relaxing campground. Large sites with firerings at each site. Free Wifi. The tent camping sites are very large and well spaced. Some have water and electric. - Judi in Jax

Persimmon Creek is a small campground that accommodates maybe 8 RVs and has about as many tent sites, located ~10 miles west of Murphy, NC, right along US74/64. It is a beautiful campground with a couple of small ponds, one of which is a trout pond. The owners are always available, helpful, and friendly. We landed here the day before the start of the Memorial Day weekend and the campground was full over the weekend, with kids riding the road circuit on their bikes almost from sunup to sundown, having a terrific time. Things quieted down considerably after the holiday weekend, so for the 2 weeks we were there, there was generally a lot of empty spaces. It's a lovely place and we'd recommend it to anyone wanting to get away.
On the less positive side, occasionally there was a surprising amount of highway noise, especially herds of motorcycles and trucks, and for AT&T and T-Mobile cell phone users there was no signal whatsoever. The campground WiFi was very weak, but generally usable. As fulltimers, we're not likely to return as it's a little too remote, but for those who want to spend a short time in a lovely place, this is definietly one to consider. - cwdavis

The owners are fabulous! They raise chickens and you can buy fresh eggs. They also have a fishing pond which we didn't use. The campground is small but very lovely. Campsites are oriented around a pond. We have stayed here twice in a 40ft RV. Sites are back in and a bit tight, but not because of closeness to your neighbor. Lots of trees. Needed to use blocks for leveling. Having said that, our 4 slide RV fit well and satellite TV worked just fine. Didn't use the WIFI as our Verizon card worked just fine. Access from the highway is good as long as you go slow. Signage is there but is pretty understated. Great place to use as a home base for exploring the area. Will definitely stay here again. - Jamul

Very nicely laid out park with huge, extremely level sites, one row of which backs up to the Nottely River (which you're not supposed to swim in, sadly - I think). All the sites have a nice patio-ish type area for a picnic table. They pay careful attention to the landscaping, but they do seem to have a issue with moles so beware if you're walking along the river sites in stilettos. The camp host was super laid back - check in and check out times weren't strictly enforced (within reason, I'd assume - we didn't push it) and we were told to feel free to wash our rig and toad if we so desired. Verizon data service was good enough for us to do our day job and the Verizon voice service was sufficient for decent voice quality. WiFi is provided by the park but, as one might expect, could be sketchy if the park is full. My speed tests on their WiFi showed a 3Mb up/3Mb down connection. No issues at all getting DirecTV satellite reception. I'd love to give them a "10" but can't as they have fire pits at each site and, while large and level, there's not much shade to be had. In fact, if you desire afternoon/evening shade, avoid the back-in spots along the river and take a pull-through site. There was some road noise as you're right off a four-lane highway, but if you're on the far side of the park it's hardly noticeable even when outside. - PirateMonkey

Largest and most level Rv site we've ever had! All roads are paved and concrete. Grass was well taken care of. Hookups were excellent. Owners very friendly. We had an unexpected additional member stay with us-I called and asked how much extra-was told it was OK. There is road noise-but with the AC on you can't hear it. Will definitely return! - n2camping

My rating reflects our opinion that the campground has little charm or personality. It is an excellent "RV Park", but not what we call a "campground". The sites are very long, and reasonably spaced from each other. The sites all face the same direction (NE) thus no afternoon shade on the curbside of the rig. Trees are few and far between and located where they could seldom provide any shade. And thus our satellite TV worked fine. The local cable TV was excellent. The man that checked us in was very helpful. The laundry was excellent. And the campground wifi was as good as it gets!! The later being a rather rare event amongst the campgrounds we visit. Our Verizon phones worked fine. They have a few sites along the river site but they were $59 per night, and the river, perhaps 40 feet behind the sites, would not be visible from the site. - rncordy

Pleasant country setting. About 20 min's. to town on a long and winding road. If you want to donate to god, there are 4 religious stations picked up by the batwing, that are 24 hr. fundraisers. No cell phone service, AT&T or Verizon. Wi-Fi up by office only. Rate reflects PA discount. If you want a quiet, removed from electronics CG this is it. If you want TV bring a Sat. dish or listen to the radio and have a fire, as we did. We would stay here again. - phnz1

If you like quiet this place is it. We were here on the Memorial Day weekend, and they had a number of vacancies. Some words about the approach to reach the campground. If you follow the map from the website and if you take the short way in, the road becomes very very narrow for a full width bus (102"). Our 36' MH used every bit of our lane and some of the on coming lane going around the tight corners. If you take a wrong turn and go off on a side road you will probably have to back all the way back out. I used our GPS and input the intersections for Joe Brown Rd and Hanging Dog Rd, , Hanging Dog Rd and Beaver Dam Rd, and Beaver Dam Rd and Horton Rd. all in Murphy, NC, and got there just fine. If you're driving anything longer than 36' you may want to take the long way in because the road is wider and not as many tight turns. However, it has restricted single lane bridges, and you might call and find out what the load limits are. We paid $31.50 for a 50 amp full hook up site with tax. The roads and sites are gravel and a longer coach may have trouble getting level in the available 50 amp sites. You are about 15 miles from the town of Murphy so have your provisions. Propane and gasoline are available on site. Wi-Fi works OK. Verizion MiFi and cell phone work poorly. Showers are great. All in all a good park that's a bit out of the way; make sure you call before you drive all the way in. The 30 amp sites are along a very small creek with good shade. 50 amp sites do not have any shade yet. Give it about 15 yrs for the trees to grow up. - pumper9x9

A true hidden gem that you should not miss at this PA price! 12 miles of curvy, narrow (but extremely quiet) road takes you to the CG. CG roads well maintained and wide (no problem with maneuvering our 29' MH with Ford Ranger in tow). Camp sites range from full RV hook-ups (no pull throughs) to primitive tent sites. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings, and are adjacent to creek that encircles the CG. Sites are large and immaculate. Clean facilities and 8 private bathrooms! Huge grass areas and playgrounds for the kids as well as a run-through fountain for the hot days. A large pavilion and cabins are available. Cabins look very nice (we peeked through the windows). A workshop is available for rent (didn't check it out, but supposedly fully equipped) at $20/hour. Gasoline and propane are sold here. We will definitely be back! - Full-Time Roamers

This tiny campground is for use by students of the Campbell Folk School. It's centrally located to most classrooms and the main hall. The Dining Room is a short walk away. For being so close to the facilities, the CG was surprisingly quiet and secluded. Sites are placed at an odd angle, with utilities also oddly placed. Most sites are back-in, and it was a bit tricky to get situated due to the angle. Had a chance to use the bathhouse when our water heater quit, and was very pleased with the cleanliness. Can't beat the convenience of this campground if you are attending classes here. - Flying Mantis

This campground is only for students attending courses at the folk school. All RV sites are back-in on the outside of a loop. Tent sites are set in the woods on the entry road. School catalog says 34' is maximum but anything up to 36' will fit. Sites are mostly level but a couple could be a challenge. We picked a site that gave us satellite reception but most are too wooded for satellite. No TV reception. Wi-Fi is available in the office but not at the campsites. There is a lit walkway between the campground and the school facilities. Pets are not allowed at the school, including the campground. - glenthompson

We have stayed here before while visiting friends in the area. The staff has always been courteous and friendly.
On this trip our rear A/C unit went out so the staff moved us to a shady site to help keep us cool.
That was our third stay with them and we highly recommend their RV Park. - Crabman

We spent the night here on our way back home form our 2015 Fall Colors trip. We had a creek side site but you could not get to the creek because of the steep bank. That was disappointing. The staff was friendly and helpful but being late October, the park amenities weren't open. There appeared to be a good number of long term campers as well as a fair amount of overnighters. This was our first ever stay at a KOA and to be honest, we don't see what warrants the higher price. - RV Outreach

Outstanding campground. Friendly staff, clean and well maintained grounds and bath house. 1st visit and already made 2 more reservations.
Spacious sites. Could not have had a better experience. This will be our 'go to' campground and our friends as well. - John DiSimone

This is a clean, quiet, adult only park. It is small (about 23 spots), but it
is nicely maintained and the park host is very friendly and helpful. All the spots are on the river or the creek. It is pretty close to Hwy. 74, but we had no problem with highway noise. The cable TV is basic and the Wi-Fi works if you have a spot fairly close to the office. The sites are level. They are pet friendly. We would definitely stay here again. - Capt.Deb

This is a very nice and clean park. All sites are on the river or creek. Site 12 is the best except for the highway noise. Beautiful setting if you can get past the road noise. Sites 21, 22 & 23 are on the creek, back in sites and further away from the main highway. If it wasn't for the road noise, I would give this park a 10. - User3010

Small adult only RV park right on the Peace River. Sites were nice and shady and gravel covered. Owner was very friendly and helpful.
Park was close to Rt. 19/74 but road noise was not noticeable. Some site back right up to river.
TV cable was very good. Wifi a little slow.
Less than a mile to the new casino (Eastern band Cherokee Indians, Harras) that opened in Murphy if you are the gambling type. We are not but did stroll through.
We would camp here again. - Littleredsportscar

This campground is for the use of people attending the school. It provides a convenient location just steps away from the classroom building. All the sites are back-in. Some require backing up a fair distance since the row is a dead-end. Many of the hook-ups are on the wrong side, requiring long cords or hoses. Sites are very shady and only a couple have satellite reception. No other TV reception is available. Road in is very narrow but has almost no traffic. Sites are relatively level. Wi-Fi is available in the classroom building and can be picked up at some of the sites. No laundry facilities are available. Nearest shopping is about 3 miles away. Closest major grocer is 10 miles. - glenthompson

We stayed here about 5 years ago. Most of the sites are permanent locals who keep TT’s or Fivers on site for weekend and seasonal use. Bath rooms were very clean. Sites were gravel. Folks were friendly. Our site was a little tight getting in and out, but no real problems. Lots of great restaurants add things to do in area. We stayed 3 days and would use it again. Vogel state park is frequently full during the summer months. - Florida Native

We've stayed in this park twice, both times in October, to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. There are only a few spots available for short term campers; most sites are leased, and well maintained. Reservations are recommended. The roads in the park are rough and somewhat narrow. Some spots take some maneuvering to get into. The park has a very nice large screened area with picnic tables for large gatherings. The washers and dryers worked fine. If you enjoy reading, you'll like their book exchange. In the screened area, there are book shelves were campers take and leave books. The park managers are very helpful. They keep a close eye on what's going on in the park. It is a convenient location; about one mile from a brand new WalMart. - BettyJ
