We have stayed in a lot of campgrounds in the US and Europe, and Persimmon Creek Campground in Murphy, NC is one of the very best. The entire campground sits along a beautiful creek where you can pan for gold, or you can go to the center of the campground and use one of the free bamboo fishing rigs to catch a fish almost every time you cast.

The grounds are flat and perfectly manicured; bare feet are welcome here! Power, water and sewer systems work perfectly with no fluctuations. You can buy fresh eggs and other goodies directly from the owner's farm, and if you need a hand with anything the caretakers are always full of useful information and excellent conversation. We strongly recommend this campground whether you're in a tent, a pop-up or a 40' Class A.

As a side note, there is a lot to do in the area if you are an outdoors enthusiast.

We LOVED Persimmon! We camped at Persimmon Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed this campground, simple, quiet and very nice owners. Access is a narrow road but we were able to get in with a 38 ft RV and a tow car. Site had 50 amp & sewer and was relatively level. Park has a nice setting with a stream. Easy access to Murphy and several scenic byways, Hiwassee Lake, Dragons Tail, Nantahala Gorge We camped at Persimmon Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We did not stay in this campground but checked it out carefully for friends who will be visiting in October with a motorhome and 5th Wheel. We have a Travel Trailer so I evaluated it on that basis. It appears to be a clean, well-kept little campground beside US 64 between Murphy, NC and Ducktown, TN. There is a grassy area beside a stream and a small pond right in the middle of the campground. Bathhouse was new and clean albeit small. The access road is gravel but appeared to have enough clearance for our rig. The sites were grass and might require some leveling. There were a lot of tents with kayakers and bicyclist, and a few medium sized RV's. If we were looking for a campsite, I would not have hesitated to stay there. It didn't appear to rate a 10, but seemed to be a nice little campground. We camped at Persimmon Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.
